Workshop 1: Cognitive Engineering and Intelligent Interaction. What to expect for your challenges shortly.


Today, after the popularization of generative AI applications, it is difficult to mention a sector that cannot benefit, from low investment. This was one of the biggest changes we have been experiencing recently: the popularization, at low cost (or even at no cost), of the use of AI applications. Not only end users, but corporations themselves, in the most diverse sectors, have benefited from this new moment.
Currently, the concept of AI - Artificial Intelligence is widely discussed around the world, due to numerous aspects, as well as: ChatGPT, Applied Ethics AI, automation of services, the importance of AI to qualify health and bring solutions to diseases, the importance of AI for the advancement of Smart Cities, the modernization of cybersecurity, among other topics that work with AI, being of paramount importance for global humanity. Concretely, AI is still in its infancy. Its impact is unquestionable, but we still have many challenges ahead, even to make its use fair, ethical, and responsible.

Workshop 2: Effective Multimodal Perception and Interactive Learning.


"The whole is greater than the sum of its parts" is a fascinating phenomenon discovered by cognitive neuroscientists, in the cells of the superior colliculus of the brain. That is, the response to a combined visual, auditory, and somatosensory stimulus is greater than the response to these three stimuli presented alone. In multimodal machine learning, we often introduce additional modalities to improve the performance of existing tasks with uni-modality, such as RGB-D scene recognition, audiovisual speech recognition and RGB-optical flow action recognition. Also, we expect to build reliable and interpretable multimodal learning mechanism, as well as effective interaction system for practical multimodal communication. In the workshop, we will focus on recent remarkable advances in multimodal learning, especially on multimodal perception and interactive learning, for discussing the potential directions in building next-generation multimodal learning system.
