ACM SAC 2017 Special Track on Cognitive Computing
April 3 - 7, 2017 - Marrakech, Morocco
DEADLINE EXTENSION: October 7th, 2016
Cognitive Computing investigates the development of self-learning systems, that naturally interact with humans in complex environments, and are capable to adapt to context and changes in language and meaning. These systems mimic the human mind processes, elaborating huge amounts of data, finding correlations, testing hypotheses, making predictions and inferences, drawing conclusions, and so on. Cognitive Computing is a new and emerging research area fostering the synergetic application of multidisciplinary approaches from various disciplines, such as Natural Language Processing, Knowledge Representation and Reasoning, Audio and Video Analysis, Computer-Human Interaction, Neuroscience and Cognition, and so on. A couple of related workshop initiatives have been recently proposed (e.g., CogArch 2016, Closing the Cognitive Loop @ IJCAI, Cognitum @ IJCAI), and for the first time, the ACM SIGAPP Symposium On Applied Computing (SAC) will host a dedicated track on Cognitive Computing. Aim of the track is to promote a forum for scientists, engineers and practitioners, in academia and industry, to share and discuss latest advances, breakthrough results, and real-world experiences in the Cognitive Computing area.
