ALIFE 2020: New Frontiers in AI: What can ALife offer AI?
July 13 - July 18
The fields of AI and ALife share a common history and a common approach: true understanding of living systems can only be demonstrated by successfully re-creating them using biology and/or technology. But mind and life are two of the most mysterious systems known to us, so re-creating them is exceedingly challenging, exciting, and at times, surprising. Recently, AI has “thrown down the gauntlet” by making large strides forward in understanding some aspects of intelligence, and intelligence is one of the many phenomena expressed by living systems; this suggests that more big discoveries are yet to come. So, we invite you to join us, July 2020 in Montreal, to continue the search for answers to life, the universe, and everything.
