Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures 2018
This volume documents the Proceedings of the 2018 Annual International Conference on Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures (BICA), also known as the Ninth Annual Meeting of the BICA Society. BICA are computational frameworks for building intelligent agents that are inspired from biological intelligence. Since 2010, the annual BICA conference attracts researchers from the edge of scientific frontiers. It contrasts major conferences in artificial intelligence (AI) and cognitive science by offering informal brainstorming atmosphere and freedom in conjunction with greater publication venues to ambitious ideas.
Authors of this volume believe that here they have made significant constructive contributions to the future of human-like AI. The future will show whether they are right or wrong. Researchers understand “biological inspirations” broadly, borrowing them from psychology, neuroscience, linguistics, narratology, design and creativity studies in order to advance cognitive robotics and machine learning, among other hot topics in AI. The “filter” is the question of whether your contribution may help us make machines our friends or understand how the mind works. With our steady growth over eight years and unmatched sociocultural program, we look forward to the new unseen success of BICA in Prague in 2018.
