The Winter Intelligence Conference, set in Oxford during Alan Turing’s centenary year, combines two subconferences:
AGI-12, the 5th conference on Artificial General Intelligence on the 8th and 9th of December 2012 (with workshops to follow on the 10th and 11th).
AGI Impacts conference which analyses the issues and risks surrounding the creation of such machines (run by the Future of Humanity Institute and the Oxford Martin Programme on the Impact of Future Technology) on the 10th and 11th of December 2012.
A selection of papers from the AGI Impacts conference have been published in a special volume of the Journal of Experimental & Theoretical Artificial Intelligence: Risks of General Artificial Intelligence, Vol. 26, Iss. 3, 2014, Vincent C. Müller (ed).
Attendees at both subconferences are eligible for the $1000 2012 Turing Prize for Best AGI Safety Paper, for any paper or contribution to ‘AGI-12’ and ‘AGI-Impacts 2012’ that presents exceptional research on the question of how to develop safe architectures or goals for artificial general intelligence (AGI).
