Humanized Computing and Communication with AI

(HCCAI) 2021


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is concerned with computing technologies that allow machines to move, see, hear, talk, think, learn, behave, and connect like humans. Humanized Computing and Communication (HCC) address the ability of a computer to mimic a human in perception, conversation, behavior, communication, and more importantly the integration and coordination of the above abilities. The huge potential of HCC represents an exciting future for individuals and businesses. In addition, business-business, business-human, and human-human may be interconnected in a revolutionary way to stimulate tremendous amount of interesting activities. 

TOPICS OF INTEREST​​ include, but are not limited to:​

  • Classic AI including reasoning, planning, knowledge representation, and problem solving

  • Visual Computing including machine vision

  • Conversational Computing including natural language processing and understanding
