Participants from all disciplines that are relevant for fundamental issues of present and future AI, especially cognitive science, computer science, neuroscience and philosophy. A broad framework is set by questions like: What are the necessary conditions for artificial intelligence (if any); what are sufficient ones? What do these questions relate to the conditions for intelligence in humans and other natural agents? What are the ethical and societal problems that artificial intelligence raises, or will raise? Some of the key issues will be:

• AI and cognitive science
• consciousness
• dynamical systems
• embedded, situated, distributed cognition, extended mind
• embodiment, enaction, morphology
• ethics of AI and robotics
• brain emulation and simulation
• goals, emotions, values, free will
• hybrid systems, cyborgs
• information
• intelligence and intelligence testing
• intentionality
• interactive systems
• learning and evolution
• multi-agent systems
• notions and forms of computing for AI
• perception
• probabilistic systems
• reasoning
• social impact of present and future AI
• super-intelligence
• ...


Details on the publication for 2013 are not yet finalized.

The papers from the 2011 event were published in a special volume of 'Minds and Machines' (22/2, with papers by Bostrom, Dreyfus, Gomila, O'Regan, Shagrir) and in an edited volume of the SAPERE series with Springer.
