Artificial Intelligence researchers continue to face huge challenges in their quest to develop truly intelligent systems. The recent developments in the field of neural-symbolic integration bring an opportunity to integrate well-founded symbolic artificial intelligence with robust neural computing machinery to help tackle some of these challenges.

City, University of London is therefore proud to host the 2017 edition of the long-running series of International Workshops on Neural-Symbolic Learning and Reasoning (NeSy): On July 17 and 18, 2017, leading figures from academia and industry will convene at City’s Northampton Square campus to discuss the latest advances and developments at the intersection between AI, machine learning, data science, and cognitive computing.

Current thought leaders from industry and internationally renowned universities will share their views and ideas. The list of confirmed speakers features, among others, Alex Graves (Google DeepMind), Zoubin Ghahramani (University of Cambrige & Uber AI Labs), Pascal Hitzler (Wright State University), and Murray Shanahan (Imperial College London).

NeSy is intended to create an atmosphere of exchange of ideas, providing a forum for the presentation and discussion of the key topics related to neural-symbolic integration. The list of relevant areas of research and development is diverse, including (but not limited to) the following topics:

- The representation of symbolic knowledge by connectionist systems;
- Neural Learning theory;
- Integration of logic and probabilities, e.g., in neural networks, but also more generally;
- Structured learning and relational learning in neural networks;
- Logical reasoning carried out by neural networks;
- Integrated neural-symbolic approaches;
- Extraction of symbolic knowledge from trained neural networks;
- Integrated neural-symbolic reasoning;
- Neural-symbolic cognitive models;
- Biologically-inspired neural-symbolic integration;
- Applications in robotics, simulation, fraud prevention, natural language processing, semantic web, software engineering, fault diagnosis, bioinformatics, visual intelligence, etc.

Registration options:
Ticket 1 (£75) - Full NeSy’17 participation (2 workshop days, July 17 and 18, 2017, including Industry Track and coffee breaks)
Ticket 2 (£45) - Single day NeSy’17 participation on July 17, 2017, including coffee break)
Ticket 3 (£55) - Single day NeSy’17 participation on July 18, 2017 (including Industry Track and coffee breaks)
Ticket 4 (£20) - Student registration (Full NeSy’17 participation: 2 workshop days, July 17 and 18, 2017, including Industry Track and coffee breaks)
