AAAI-18 Emerging Topic Human-AI Collaboration

While AI systems continue to get better at independent perception, learning, and well-defined reasoning tasks, there is emerging interest in designing AI system to complement and enhance, rather than supplant, human capabilities. New technical challenges arise in the development of machines that model and infer the mental and physical state of human counterparts, and apply these models to collaborate with people in richer, more flexible ways.

The goal of the emerging topic on Human-machine collaboration at AAAI 2018 is to highlight these technical challenges and opportunities, as well as showcase the value of new human-AI partnerships.

We invite papers addressing the following topics and keywords:

  • Trustable and Explainable AI
  • Teamwork, team formation
  • Human-aware planning and behavior prediction
  • Planning and Decision Support for Human-Machine Teams
  • Human-Agent Negotiation
  • Human-robot/agent interaction
  • Human-in-the-loop planning/ learning
  • Human Computation
  • Human and AI Communication Protocols

The submissions for this emerging topic will follow the regular AAAI technical paper submission process. Submissions relevant to the emerging topic of human-computer collaboration will be identified by the program chairs and will be reviewed by a program committee of experts in this area.

Accepted papers will be presented at the main conference in sessions designated to the topic. The sessions will also include invited talks and panels on the topic.
