For ICONIP 2019 a total of 345 papers was carefully reviewed and selected for publication out of 645 submissions. The 168 papers included in this volume set were organized in topical sections as follows: adversarial networks and learning; convolutional neural networks; deep neural networks; embeddings and feature fusion; human centred computing; human centred computing and medicine; human centred computing for emotion; hybrid models; image processing by neural techniques; learning from incomplete data; model compression and optimization; neural network applications; neural network models; semantic and graph based approaches; social network computing; spiking neuron and related models; text computing using neural techniques; time-series and related models; and unsupervised neural models.
Artificial Intelligence helps choose what books you buy, what movies you see, and even who you date. It puts the "smart" in your smartphone and soon it will drive your car. It makes most of the trades on Wall Street, and controls vital energy, water, and transportation infrastructure. But Artificial Intelligence can also threaten our existence.
In as little as a decade, AI could match and then surpass human intelligence. Corporations and government agencies are pouring billions into achieving AI's Holy Grail—human-level intelligence. Once AI has attained it, scientists argue, it will have survival drives much like our own. We may be forced to compete with a rival more cunning, more powerful, and more alien than we can imagine.
Through profiles of tech visionaries, industry watchdogs, and groundbreaking AI systems, Our Final Invention explores the perils of the heedless pursuit of advanced AI. Until now, human intelligence has had no rival. Can we coexist with beings whose intelligence dwarfs our own? And will they allow us to?
