The Thirty-First Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AAAI-17) was held at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square in San Francisco, California, USA from February 4–9, 2017. The proceedings volumes were published by AAAI Press.

Over the last few years we have seen a resurgence of interest in AI technologies from industry as well as an increase in interest in AI research from undergraduate and graduate students and faculty from around the world. As specialized conferences in machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing, and computer vision, thrive and grow, it is especially pleasing to note that AAAI, a venue that attracts papers from across the breadth of AI, is also thriving and growing. We believe there is tremendous value to bringing together the diverse communities with shared long-term goals, facilitating collaboration and transfer of ideas, as well as welcoming strong papers that cross subarea boundaries and may thus fall through the cracks. We trust AAAI will continue to provide such a venue

The AAAI-17 program featured a comprehensive slate of tutorials, workshops, the satellite IAAI conference and the EAAI symposium, demos, videos, exhibits, invited talks and panels, student abstracts, and special presentations by senior members and representatives from affiliated communities. These activities were organized around a core of technical sessions comprising presentations of original research contributions. The conference cochairs were Satinder Singh (University of Michigan, USA) and Shaul Markovitch (Technion, Israel).

The proceedings consists primarily of papers that describe original research contributions vetted by rigorous review. A total of 2,571 well-formed papers were submitted to the technical program — an all-time record for AAAI. Of these, 2,432 were directed by authors to the main track, and the remainder to one of three special tracks: Cognitive Systems, Computational Sustainability, and Integrated AI Capabilities.

Also included in this proceedings are the papers of the Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence Conference (IAAI), which emphasizes the relevance of AI in our everyday lives. The IAAI-17 chair was James Crawford (Orbital Insight, USA). The conference was cochaired by G. Michael Youngblood (PARC, a Xerox Company, USA).

The Symposium on Educational Advances in Artificial Intelligence (EAAI-17) seeks to advance the AAAI goal of improving the teaching and training of AI practitioners. This year, the symposium was cochaired by Eric Eaton (University of Pennsylvania, USA) and Sven Koenig (University of Southern California, USA).

The conferences are sponsored by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence.
