The special track intends to strengthen awareness that AI is assuming a central role in the competitive strategies of the present scenario of rapid changes.
AI can significantly support societal and economic development due to the rapidly emerging demand for innovative technologies in many application areas both
in the public and private sectors. The AI*IA association is a key reference in the Italian scenario, with over 450 members, affiliated at the main
universities and public research centers. The annual meeting of the association brings together experts from many fields of AI, and it can then offer a wide
picture of the best practices, of the challenges, and of the expertises that can be shared among researches and practicioners. The special track on AI for
Society and Economy targets an audience interested in sharing experiences, in matching challenges, and in strengthening collaborations among researchers,
public institutions, companies and practitioners.
We encourage inspiring and suggestive presentations that report on:
Presentations must clearly describe the impact of AI on businesses, on public goods, or on society at large.
The duration of a talk will be around 15-20 minutes, depending on the number of accepted submissions and on the available time slots.
The style of presentation should be inspired by TED and TEDx speeches, with a brief introduction to the problems and solutions, and with some topics presented in depth.
Talks at the symposium will be recorded to produce informative material of the AI*IA association.
The intended audience of the (recorded or live) talks includes then not only academics and researchers, but also practitioners, managers, policy makers, and the general public.
A two pages proposal should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject “AI*IA 2014 Special Track”.
The proposal must include name and affiliation of the speaker, a short abstract, and an optional link to additional information available on the web (such as videos, product download, user communities, and so on).
Proposers will be notified within two weeks from submission, based on their relevance and quality.
