SCOPE & MOTIVATION:
The ACAIN 2020 is aimed at AI experts, neuroscientists and both at AI experts with interests in Neuroscience and at neuroscientists with an interest in AI. ACAIN 2020 will be a special opportunity to hear about cutting-edge research by leading scientists in #AI and #Neuroscience.

The two days of keynote talks and oral presentations (the ACAIN Symposium, 1-2 October,2020) will be preceded by lectures of leading scientists (the ACAIN Course, 28-30 September,2020) for students and newcomers to this interdisciplinary field.

Bringing together AI and neuroscience promises to yield benefits for both fields. The future impact and progress in both AI and Neuroscience will strongly depend on a more efficient synergy and cooperation between the two research communities. These are the goals of the International Course and Symposium – ACAIN 2020, which is aimed both at AI experts with interests in Neuroscience and at neuroscientists with an interest in AI. ACAIN 2020 will be a special opportunity to hear about cutting-edge research by leading scientists in both fields. The two days of keynote talks and oral presentations (the Symposium) will be preceded by two days of lectures (the Course) for students and newcomers to this interdisciplinary field. Moreover, ICAN 2020 accepts rigorous research that promotes and fosters multidisciplinary interactions between artificial intelligence and neuroscience.

The International Symposium Proceedings will be published by Springer. Papers will appear in a volume of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) - Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series.

"Free Will in Artificial Intelligence: What volition neuroscience says about free behaviour and implications for the design of autonomous artificial intelligence agents"

Organizer and Chair: Catalin Mitelut, Center for Theoretical Neuroscience, Columbia University, New York, USA
cm3746@columbia.edu

The human capacity for free will or volitional (i.e. voluntary) behaviour has intrigued scientists and philosophers for thousands of years. Over the last few decades, neuroscientists have uncovered many neural correlates of voluntary behaviours and identified several decision stages involving specific neuroanatomy and dynamics (Haggard 2008). While a reward-optimized decision framework lies at the core of most fast decisions it is supported by slower time-course motivational systems that identify long-term needs (e.g. feeding, offspring care; Maslow 1943, Kenrick 2010). In the absence of naturally evolved motivational drives, autonomous general artificial agents will require the design of motivational systems that will pose unique challenges to our understanding of free will while offering creative opportunities.
This symposium seeks submissions focusing on extending evolutionary biology and the neuroscience of volition towards the design of internally motivated, freely behaving autonomous artificial agents.
