This workshop will focus on the following pillars of intelligence:

  • Social intelligence and learning from other agents
  • Language production, understanding, and reasoning
  • Creativity and innovation
  • Consciousness
  • The need for a new form of the Turing test
  • What is understanding? How can we measure it? Do large models understand?


This workshop will have a vertical structure, with researchers from all three disciplines participating in each focus topic. It will consist of talks by participating researchers, panel discussions, and poster sessions where students and postdocs can present their related work.
