NARS Tutorial and Workshop at AGI-19

Shenzhen, August 6-9, 2019

AGI-19 Conference

With notable progress in recent years, the AGI-oriented NARS (Non-Axiomatic Reasoning System) has been attracting increasing interest from researchers and students from around the world. Built on top of its open-source implementation OpenNARS, several NARS-based or NARS-related projects have been undertaken and are currently under development. To encourage communication and collaboration among the researchers, as well as to introduce these projects to the AGI community, a NARS Workshop will be held during AGI-19 as an integrated part of the conference.

The workshop will be a one-day event (Aug 6th). It will start with a tutorial that introduces the conceptual design and current implementations of NARS, followed by presentations and discussions of the existing projects. The workshop concludes with a panel discussion about future research.

Submissions to the workshop should be directly relevant to NARS, though the content can be in many different forms, including conceptual analysis, comparison with other work, implementation issues, application experiments, impact evaluations, etc. The submissions should be prepared in the same format as AGI-19 papers, with the same length restriction. All submissions must be emailed to tuf66045@temple.edu by July 1, and the acceptance decisions will be announced by July 15. All the accepted papers will be maintained at the workshop website, and future publication opportunities will be explored in continuation.

The workshop will be open to all AGI-19 attendees. Additional demonstrations and tutorials may be arranged on a case-by-case manner for those wishing to learn more about the project.

Organizing Committee: Pei Wang (Temple University), Hugo Latapie (Cisco), Kristinn R. Thórisson (Reykjavik University), Kai Liu (Bohai University), Xiang Li (Temple University), Bill Power (Temple University).
