Call for Papers / Tutorials / Demos,
also on Computer Vision for AI:

The Fourth Conference on Artificial General Intelligence
Google, Mountain View, CA, August 3-7 (Wed-Sat) 2011

The original goal of the AI field was the construction of “thinking  
machines”, that is, computer systems with human-like general  
intelligence. For the last few decades, however, the majority of AI  
researchers have focused on what can be called “narrow AI” – systems  
with intelligence limited to specific, highly constrained tasks. In  
recent years more and more researchers have recognized the necessity –  
and feasibility – of returning to the original goals of the field.

Increasingly, there is a call for confronting the more difficult  
issues of human-level intelligence, and more broadly “artificial  
general intelligence” (AGI). Continuing the mission of the first three  
highly successful AGI conferences, AGI-11 will gather an international  
group of leading academic and industry researchers involved in serious  
scientific and engineering work aimed directly at the goal of AGI.  
This is the only major conference series devoted wholly and  
specifically to the creation of AI systems possessing general  
intelligence at the human level and beyond. A good sense of the  
overall nature of the conference may be found via perusing AGI-10,  
AGI-09, and AGI-08, e.g., http://agi-conf.org/2010/ . AGI-11 will be  
hosted by Google in Mountain View, California.

Submissions are solicited for proposals, workshops, tutorials, and  
demos, including those related to Computer Vision for AI. Whether an  
accepted paper (either full-length or short position statement) will  
be presented as a talk or as a poster will be determined by the  
Program Committee, in part based on paper quality as assessed by the  
anonymous reviewers, and in part according to the extent the paper  
addresses a topic of core interest to the AGI community.

Submission instructions: http://agi-conf.org/2011/call-for-papers/

Submission deadline: February 15, 2011.

Jürgen Schmidhuber & Kristinn R. Thórisson (AGI-11 Program Chairs)
