The Symposium

_________________________________________________________

 

The capacity to attend to the relevant has been part of Artificial Intelligence (AI)

systems since the early days of the discipline. Currently, with respect to the design and

computational modelling of artificial cognitive systems, selective attention has again

become a focus of research, and one sees it important for the organization of

behaviours, for control and interfacing between sensory and cognitive information

processing, and for the understanding of individual and social cognition in humanoid

artefacts. One may consider selective attention as part of the core of artificial cognitive

systems. Within the context of the engineering domain, the development of enabling

technologies such as autonomous robotic systems, miniaturized mobile - even wearable

- sensors, and ambient intelligence systems involves the real-time analysis of enormous

quantities of data. These data have to be processed in an intelligent way to provide "on

time delivery" of the required relevant information. Knowledge has to be applied about

what needs to be attended to, and when, and what to do in a meaningful sequence, in

correspondence with visual feedback.

 

Suggested symposium topics include, but are not limited to:

 

• Computational architectures for attention

• Modelling of visual and auditory attention

• Biologically inspired attention

• Attention in robotic / mobile / wearable systems

• Aspects of attention in cognitive psychology, neuroscience, and philosophy

• Attention and control of machine vision processes

• Performance measures for attention enabled artificial systems

• Applications of machine attention

 

 

Objectives

_________________________________________________________

 

The goal of this symposium is to provide an international forum to examine

computational methods of attention in cognitive systems from an interdisciplinary

viewpoint, with the focus on computer vision in relation to robotics, psychology, and

neuroscience.
