Machine Consciousness 2011: Self, Integración y Explicación


Machine Consciousness 2011 (Conciencia Artificial 2011)
Self, Integración and Explicación
Llamada a la Participación

Límite para el envío de resúmenes: 31 de Diciembre de 2010.

Extensión de la fecha límite para el envío de resúmenes: 9 de Enero de 2011.

Invitación para el envío de trabajos al MC2011, un simposio de 2 días que se celebrará conjuntamente con el AISB 2011 (Artificial Intelligence and the Simulation of Behaviour 2011), del 4 al 7 de April de 2011, Universidad de York, Reino Unido.

La Conciencia Artificial (CA) trata con la creación de artefactos que tienen, o modelan, características mentales típicamente asociadas con la conciencia como la (auto-)conciencia, las emociones, el afecto, los estados fenomenológicos, la imaginación, etc.

Temas específicos:
Se buscan trabajos que encajen con las siguientes áreas:
• CA y auto-modelado
• CA e integración de la información
• El poder explicativo de los modelos de CA
• CA y neurociencia
• CA y conciencia funcional versus conciencia fenomenológica
• Ética y CA

Machine Consciousness 2011 will favour submissions that are based on implemented models, either in the sense that they detail actual or potential artefacts or that they seriously engage with previous published work or models, either by critiquing or extending that work. We favour new work – even if preliminary – over work which has received multiple publication elsewhere.

For more information on the themes and background of MC2011, please consult the website at http://www.sussex.ac.uk/cogs/mc2011.
