Jeremy Frank Hosts AAAI Spring Symposia

Dr. Jeremy Frank co-organized and hosted one of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) nine Spring Symposia titled Can We Talk? How to Design Multi-Agent Systems in the Absence of Reliable Communications. The organizing committee included representatives from NASA and academia. The symposia lasted one and a half days and consisted of ten accepted papers and four invited talks.

BACKGROUND: The AAAI, in cooperation with Stanford University's Department of Computer Science, presented the 2021 Spring Symposium Series March 21–23. Symposia generally range from 40-75 participants each. Participation was open to active participants as well as other interested individuals on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The nine symposia were:

  • AI Engineering: Creating Scalable, Human-Centered and Robust AI Systems
  • Artificial Intelligence for Synthetic Biology
  • Can We Talk? How to Design Multi-Agent Systems in the Absence of Reliable Communications
  • Closing the Assessment Loop: Communicating Proficiency and Intent in Human-Robot Teaming
  • Designing Artificial Intelligence for Open Worlds
  • Ethical Computing: Metrics for Measuring AI’s Proficiency and Competency for Ethical Reasoning
  • How Fair is Fair? Achieving Wellbeing AI
  • Machine Learning and Knowledge Engineering for Hybrid Intelligence
  • Putting AI in the Critical Loop: Assured Trust and Autonomy in Human-Machine Teams
