The Twenty-Ninth Conference on Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence (IAAI-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.
The Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence Conference (IAAI) 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). IAAI was colocated with AAAI and their paper presentations and invited talks were coordinated. This enabled conference attendees to seamlessly move between conferences fostering interest in applied AI research while keeping track of the latest results of AI research.
IAAI-17 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 2017 we have two papers in this track: one paper on using AI for online recruiting, a topic of importance of all growing companies, and one on the successful use of AI to search for new physical materials with novel and interesting properties. The emerging applications track focuses on areas in which AI technology can have a practical impact. For the year 2017 we have 17 papers in this track, a significant increase for IAAI-17, covering a broad range of topics such as analyzing social media to detect airport threats, nudging people to attend cancer screening, crowdsensing air quality with cameras in mobile devices, and much more.
The conferences are sponsored by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence.
