Two keynote papers will be presented at the symposium: “Deep Learning RNNaisance” by Professor Dr Jürgen Schmidhuber of Swiss Al Lab IDSIA & USI & SUPSI, and “Next Generation Intelligent Systems: Observe-Project-Counteract Agent Architecture for Real-time Computational Red Teaming” by Professor Dr Hussein A Abbass of Australia’s University of New South Wales.

Also speaking at the symposium will be Dr Soo-Young Lee of Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, Professor Dr Paul Chung of Loughborough University and Professor Dr Irwin King of the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

According to the statement, the symposium received 72 submissions this year, out of which 34 were accepted, following a double blind peer review process.

It added that high quality papers are therefore expected to be presented at the symposium, attracting researchers, academics, industry practitioners and students from diverse nations, it added.
