Artificial Intelligence (AI) is rapidly transforming our business, social and physical world. Machine Intelligence and computing artifacts infused with AI and cognition is increasingly becoming an integral part of our social and economic activities/processes, as well as cultural and business interactions. The cognitive machine intelligence (CogMI) is creating unprecedented opportunities for impactful scientific innovations and societal transformations by significantly augmenting the human ability for problem solving and rapid decision making in terms of speed, precision and variety, while fostering innovations in all our human endeavors from scientific discoveries, solving long standing healthcare problems, modeling highly interconnected and globally distributed systems, and so forth. As we enter the new social, physical and cyber world empowered by such cognitive machine intelligence, it is important to understand and explore the foundational characteristics of the algorithmic theory and processes behind the cognitive machine intelligence, the behavioral and cognitive enhancement of intelligent machines that promote a productive and creative partnership and collaboration between the humans and the machines so as to ensure an equitable, fair and transparent CogMI-enhanced society and cyber-physical-social worlds around us.
The goal of the IEEE Conference on Cognitive Machine Intelligence (IEEE CogMI) is to create a research and development forum on cognitive machine intelligence to foster research results on AI and ML with cognitive science and behavioral science. It promotes productive collaborations among experts from multiple disciplines, such as but not limited to: computer science, electronic and computer engineering, information science, economics, industrial engineering, psychology, social and behavioral sciences, biological and physical sciences, and ethics, law and policy. IEEE 2019 CogMI aims to be a premier, highly multidisciplinary forum to foster interaction and exchange of innovative ideas, and collaboration among researchers, practitioners, philosophers from academia, industry and government sectors who are interested in developing innovative AI/ML algorithms, applications and systems by integrating cognitive science and putting humans in the loop, promoting innovations in cognitive machine intelligence.
Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion are central to the goals of the IEEE Computer Society and all of its conferences. Equity at its heart is about removing barriers, biases, and obstacles that impede equal access and opportunity to succeed. Diversity is fundamentally about valuing human differences and recognizing diverse talents. Inclusion is the active engagement of Diversity and Equity.
A goal of the IEEE Computer Society is to foster an environment in which all individuals are entitled to participate in any IEEE Computer Society activity free of discrimination. For this reason, the IEEE Computer Society is firmly committed to team compositions in all sponsored activities, including but not limited to, technical committees, steering committees, conference organizations, standards committees, and ad hoc committees that display Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.
IEEE Computer Society meetings, conferences and workshops must provide a welcoming, open and safe environment, that embraces the value of every person, regardless of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, marital status, religion, national origin, ancestry, or disability. All individuals are entitled to participate in any IEEE Computer Society activity free of discrimination, including harassment based on any of the above factors.
IEEE believes that science, technology, and engineering are fundamental human activities, for which openness, international collaboration, and the free flow of talent and ideas are essential. Its meetings, conferences, and other events seek to enable engaging, thought provoking conversations that support IEEE’s core mission of advancing technology for humanity. Accordingly, IEEE is committed to providing a safe, productive, and welcoming environment to all participants, including staff and vendors, at IEEE-related events.
IEEE has no tolerance for discrimination, harassment, or bullying in any form at IEEE-related events. All participants have the right to pursue shared interests without harassment or discrimination in an environment that supports diversity and inclusion. Participants are expected to adhere to these principles and respect the rights of others.
IEEE seeks to provide a secure environment at its events. Participants should report any behavior inconsistent with the principles outlined here, to on site staff, security or venue personnel, or to firstname.lastname@example.org
