International Workshop: AI-Biz2016

November 14-16, 2016
Raiosha Building, Hiyoshi Campus, Keio University
4-1-1 Hiyoshi, Kohoku-ku, Yokohama, Kanagawa 223-8521, Japan

Aims and Scope

The objective of this workshop is to foster the concepts and techniques of“Business Intelligence (BI).” in Artificial Intelligence. BI should include such cutting-edge techniques as data science, agent-based modelling, complex adaptive systems, and IoT. The application areas include but not limited to business management, finance engineering, service sciences, manufacturing engineering, and so on.

The basic idea of BI would enhance the capabilities of conventional techniques in business domain, however, so far, we have not discussed BI concepts deeply in artificial intelligence literature. We would like to focus on BI topics to the issues of firms and organizations for getting more benefits on interactions with human- and computer- mixed systems.

The main purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum to discuss important research questions and practical challenges in Business Intelligence, Business Informatics, Data Analysis and Agent-based Modelling to exchange latest results, to join efforts in solving the common challenges. It is also to establish an effective communication between researchers and developers involved in the both areas. The workshop will provide opportunities for the participants to exchange new ideas and experiences to establish research or business network and to find global partners for future collaboration.

Title: Big Data, AI, Smart Government
Abstract :The government 3.0 is aiming at implementing the scientific administration based on the data. In order to establish a long-term strategy for the future of the country as well as to resolve social issues, it should be equipped with the ability to weave and analyze a variety of huge data, which express our society. In the 21st century of digital society, having a huge impact of the connections and interactions among individuals on social phenomenon with the social complexity, society is becoming more and more complex. Frequent occurrences of radical changes happen instantaneously. Exploring th potential possibilities of the future, which are unprecedented, and analyzing the dynamic changes of our society are necessary to identify the hidden causal effects and make the proper policies timely. Multi-dimensional analysis and long-term predictions for the various combinatons of policy variables must be tested and evaluated on the social simulation environment.

Title: Disruptive Technologies and the Future of Society
Abstract: The new generation of technology development — including Computational intelligence, Cognitive Computing, Internet of Things, Social Computing and Virtual Reality, and others – will disrupt the economic and social model of every human endeavor. Advances in these domains are inevitable, irreversible, and their impact is immeasurable. The questions are: how to promote strategies to embrace, commercialize, and monetize these new technologies? How to prepare business and society to this new technology revolution? And, how to position current business to be part of this evolution reaping the benefits of disruptive technologies?
