  Ahoj!

  Konference bude i letos: http://beyondai.zcu.cz/ - tentokrat pojedeme
minimalne ja a chido, budeme radi, kdyz se pridate (ctvrtek/patek 5.-6.
listopadu). Jednu z keynotes bude mit Kevin Warwick.

The second annual international conference Beyond AI will focus on
interdisciplinary and philosophical aspects of artificial intelligence.
The aim of this year is to question deep-rooted ideas of artificial
intelligence and cast critical reflection on methods standing at its
foundations.

Artificial Dreams epitomize our controversial quest for non-biological
intelligence, and therefore we encourage prospective authors to fully
exploit this controversy in their papers. Interdisciplinary dialogue
between experts from engineering, natural sciences and humanities is
strongly encouraged.

Contributions to the following topics are welcomed:

    Social and Cultural Discourse of AI (social and narrative
construction of AI success, ethical challenges of AI, science fiction as
social reality, AI as Imitatio Dei, cyborg myths)

    Dystopic and Utopic Visions of AI (singularitarianism, posthumanism,
march of the machines)

    AI versus IA (intelligence amplification, AI-based cognitive
enhancement, brain-computer interface, embodied cognitive science)

    Digital Immortality (mind-uploading, whole brain emulation, natural
mind in artificial body)

    AI and Art (second life dreaming, aesthetics of computer-human
contacts, cyberpunk art, machines as artists)

The official language of the conference is English. The papers
recommended by the Programme Committee on the basis of a double-blind
peer review process will be published in the conference proceedings.
After the conference, authors of the best papers will have an
opportunity to extend their papers and include them in the proceedings
that will be offered to Springer for publication.
