AIxAS 2021 : Second Italian Workshop on Artificial Intelligence for an Ageing Society
Call For Papers
Second Italian Workshop on Artificial Intelligence for an Ageing Society (AIxAS 2021)
Anywhere, November 30th, 2021 – Co-located with AI*IA 2021
AIMS AND SCOPE
Increased life expectancy is an achievement of modern society in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, OECD Countries (and recently in developing Countries) thanks to the technological progress in health, living places and quality of food. The aggregate consequence of the prolongation of the life span is the growth of an ageing society, testified by several demographic studies. The study of the consequences of an ageing society on the future of social living had recently been considered by large world institutions (UN, EU), which addressed and designed programs for social and technological development taking into account the impact of the ageing society in the future of the world.
Within this framework, topics such as “prolonging independent living”, “ageing well”, or “social inclusion” are increasingly becoming more and more relevant. Several initiatives all over the world took care of these aspects focusing on the problem of developing a new generation of innovative technologies to face an ageing society and its growing needs. One of the most consolidated programs is known as “active and healthy ageing”, supported by the H2020 research area that recently also launched a call on adaptive smart working and living environments supporting active and healthy ageing.
In this scenario, Artificial Intelligence (AI) methods and techniques have and will have a pivotal role, due to the advanced goals of the discipline and its inner cross-disciplinary attitude, in order to deliver innovative and impacting results and related technologies. Facing the problems of an ageing society requires a cross-disciplinary approach, too. The development of new AI-based solutions to support and help older adults to cope with the changes of ageing and cognitive decline represents one of the most advanced ICT areas in the AI field. Robotics, Assistive Technology for Cognition, Sensor-based Monitoring Systems, Compensation Systems, Road Security, Continuous Learning and Navigation Supports for in-and-outdoor Systems are the fields where AI may challenge its solutions and contribute to innovative technological changes.
The workshop calls for contributions from experts in Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Science and from crossing disciplines involved in the development of AI-based researches and technologies for the ageing society in (but not only) the following areas:
• Activity monitoring systems (indoor and outdoor)
• Object and Activity recognition
• Human-environment and human-robot interaction
• Novel sensors and actuators
• Smart environments (indoor and outdoor)
• Ambient Assisted Living (AAL)
• Personalization of AI Services for older adults
• Intelligent and Cognition-based User Interaction
• Advanced Data Analysis Techniques and Information Fusion
• Ageing, mobility and transportation
• Ethical issues in AI domains for Ageing Society
• AI techniques applied to AAL scenarios
This workshop is the ninth event organized by the AI and Ageing Society working group.
