The Twenty-Ninth Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AAAI-15) — the inaugural winter AAAI conference — was held at the Hyatt Regency Austin in Austin, Texas, USA from January 25-30, 2015. The proceedings volumes were published by AAAI Press.
The AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence has promoted theoretical and applied AI research as well as intellectual interchange among researchers and practitioners for more than three decades. The Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence Conference (IAAI), which has been included in the AAAI proceedings for more than two decades, emphasizes the relevance of AI in our everyday lives.
IAAI-15 presents papers in three tracks: deployed applications, emerging applications, and challenge problems. The deployed applications track focuses on fielded AI applications that distinguish themselves for their innovative use of AI technology. For the year 2015, there were six papers in this track, including descriptions of the AI technology used for detecting procurement and health-care fraud, activity planning for lunar orbital missions, performing position assignment in the enterprise, modeling protest events in social media, and a special 30-history of one of AI’s longest running applications – the Process Diagnosis System (PDS).
The emerging applications track focuses on areas in which AI technology can have a practical impact. For the year 2015, there were 13 papers in this track, covering topics on entity recognition, combining qualitative logic and crowdsourcing, machine learning and storm models, learning route preferences, collaborative planning, citizen science, cyber defense, sketch understanding for music education, and skill identification.
Finally, the Challenge problems track included three papers proposing grand challenges for AI: the Winograd Challenge in commonsense reasoning, the Aristo Challenge in elementary school science, and a challenge in large-scale flow cytometry.
The IAAI-15 chair was David Gunning (PARC, USA). The conference was cochaired by Peter Z. Yeh (Nuance Communications, USA).
The conferences are sponsored by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence.
