ECIAIR 2020 - Proceedings of the 2nd European Conference on the Impact of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics - PRINT VERSION
These proceedings represent the work of contributors to the 2nd European Conference on the Impact of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (ECIAIR 2020), hosted by ACI and Instituto Universitário de Lisboa (ISCTE-IUL), Portugal on 22-23 October 2020. The Conference Chair is Dr Florinda Matos, and the Programme Chairs are Dr Ana Maria de Almeida and Prof Isabel Salavisa, all from Instituto Universitário de Lisboa (ISCTE-IUL), Portugal.
ECIAIR is now a well-established event on the academic research calendar and now, in its 2nd year, the key aim remains in the opportunity for participants to share ideas and meet people who hold them. The conference was due to be held at Instituto Universitário de Lisboa (ISCTE-IUL), Portugal, but because of the global Covid-19 pandemic, it was moved online as a virtual event. The subjects covered in the papers illustrate the wide range of topics that fall into this important and ever-growing area of research.
The opening keynote presentation is given by Prof. Mário Figueiredo, from University of Lisbon, Portugal, on the topic of “Artificial Intelligence: Historical Aspects, Modern Applications, and Implications”. The second day of the conference will be open by Prof. Jean-Gabriel Ganascia, Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC), France and a member of the Institut Universitaire de France, France, who will talk about “Why do we need Ethics and not just Regulations in AI and Robotics?”.
With an initial submission of 60 abstracts, after the double blind, peer review process there are 25 academic research papers, 1 PhD research paper, and 1 work-in-progress paper published in these Conference Proceedings. These papers represent research from Brazil, Cuba, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, USA.
