Knowledge representation and reasoning are traditional areas within
artificial intelligence. In the modern society they are underlying
building blocks in various kinds of information systems and networks.
Knowledge representation and reasoning are also central themes in
cognitive science and epistemology. Relevant questions include how we
know what we know, how we can make useful inferences, and how we can
use computers in models and applications of knowledge representation
and reasoning. Traditional models have been based on predicate logic,
semantic networks and other symbolic representations.
One of the central goals of the AKRR'05
conference is to probe alternative representations and algorithms such
as statistical latent variable models, vector space representations,
statistical machine learning,
artificial neural networks, and dynamical systems.
These challenges are of particular interest, e.g., in life sciences, where
the complexity of disease mechanisms and the process of developing new drugs
require novel approaches. This issue will be the focus of
the symposium KRBIO'05.
The symposium AMKLC'05
adresses emergence, complexity and self-organization in cognitive and
social systems: how knowledge is being created and established within
human and computer-mediated networks and the role of language as an
adaptive medium for knowledge building.
