The workshop on COGNITIVE VISION is oganised as part of the IJCAI-ECAI 2018, the 27th International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence and the 23rd European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI-ECAI 2018, http://www.ijcai-18.org) to be held in Stockholm, Sweden on Saturday July 14 2018 (Morning Workshop / B3).
The workshop on COGNITIVE VISION solicits contributions addressing computational vision and perception at the interface of language, logic, cognition, and artificial intelligence. The workshop brings together a novel & unique combination of academics and research methodologies encompassing AI, Cognition, and Interaction.
The workshop will feature invited and contributed research advancing the practice of Cognitive Vision particularly from the viewpoints of theories and methods developed within the fields of:
Application domains being addressed include, but are not limited to:
Technical Focus. The principal emphasis of the workshop is on the integration of vision and artificial intelligence from the viewpoints of embodied perception, interaction, and autonomous control. In addition to basic research questions, the workshop addresses diverse application areas where, for instance, the processing and semantic interpretation of (potentially large volumes of) highly dynamic visuo-spatial imagery is central: autonomous systems, cognitive robotics, medical & biological computing, social media, cultural heritage & art, social media, psychology and behavioural research domains where data-centred analytical methods are gaining momentum. Particular themes of high interest solicited by the workshop include:
The workshop emphasises application areas where explainability and semantic interpretation of
dynamic visuo-spatial imagery are central, e.g., for commonsense scene understanding;
vision for robotics and HRI;
narrative interpretation from the viewpoints of visuo-auditory perception & digital media,
sensemaking from (possibly multimodal) human-behaviour data where the principal component is visual imagery.
We welcome contributions, position statements, perspectives addressing the workshop themes from formal, cognitive, computational, engineering, empirical, psychological, and philosophical perspectives. Select indicative topics include:
