A three-day conference from Friday, Oct. 25 – Sunday, Oct. 27, the ADT 2019 focus is on algorithmic decision theory broadly defined, seeking to bring together researchers and practitioners coming from diverse areas of Computer Science, Economics and Operations Research in order to improve the theory and practice of modern decision support.
In AI, the ability to model and reason with preferences allows for more personalized services. However, ethical priorities are also essential, if we want AI systems to make decisions that are ethically acceptable for us. Both data-driven and symbolic methods can be used to model preferences and ethical priorities, and to combine them in the same system, as two agents that need to cooperate. We describe two approaches to design AI systems that can reason with both preferences and ethical priorities.
Born a half-generation after the computer pioneers, I knew most of them. This talk will sketch an early history of computers, emphasizing the personalities rather than the technology, and the parts I know from personal experience rather than uniform coverage.
The regional competition is the first tier of the ICPC International Collegiate Programming Contest (formerly known as the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest). The Mid-Atlantic Region covers southern New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, the District of Columbia, Virginia, and North Carolina. For more information, see the Mid-Atlantic Regional Programming Contest or The ICPC International Collegiate Programming Contest.
