International Workshop: AI-Biz2018

November 12-14, 2018
Raiosha Building, Hiyoshi Campus, Keio University
4-1-1 Hiyoshi, Kohoku-ku, Yokohama, Kanagawa 223-8521, Japan

Aims and Scope

The objective of this workshop is to foster the concepts and techniques of“Business Intelligence (BI).” in Artificial Intelligence. BI should include such cutting-edge techniques as data science, agent-based modelling, complex adaptive systems, and IoT. The application areas include but not limited to business management, finance engineering, service sciences, manufacturing engineering, and so on.

The basic idea of BI would enhance the capabilities of conventional techniques in business domain, however, so far, we have not discussed BI concepts deeply in artificial intelligence literature. We would like to focus on BI topics to the issues of firms and organizations for getting more benefits on interactions with human- and computer- mixed systems.

The main purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum to discuss important research questions and practical challenges in Business Intelligence, Business Informatics, Data Analysis and Agent-based Modelling to exchange latest results, to join efforts in solving the common challenges. It is also to establish an effective communication between researchers and developers involved in the both areas. The workshop will provide opportunities for the participants to exchange new ideas and experiences to establish research or business network and to find global partners for future collaboration.

Two-Storied ELSI Guidelines: Inclusive Coverage to Individual Solutions

Recent days, Society is strict against AI-oriented ELSI problem (Ethics, Law, and Society Implementation). There are guidelines authorized by academic society. However, it is often tricky and abstractive to let researchers make the practical action. The reason is guidelines try to cover anything came from AI research. In our study, we focus on AI-based Consensus Building Support System called COLLAGREE. We formed the ELSI Committee to solve eight specified ELSI problems and started its operation since 2017. Our trial is impossible to cover all AI research which has a potential impact to the society, but if individual researchers do like us; bottom-up guideline sets will be created, that might solve the ELSI problems including unknown problems. Researcher’s more attention is required.
