Opening Remarks
08:45 – 09:00
AWE Hall 2C
Keynote I: "Project Debater - how persuasive can a computer be?"
Noam Slonim (IBM Haifa Research Lab)
09:00 – 10:00
AWE Hall 2C

Project Debater is the first AI system that can meaningfully debate a human opponent. The system, an IBM Grand Challenge, is designed to build coherent, convincing speeches on its own, as well as provide rebuttals to the opponent’s main arguments. In February 2019, Project Debater competed against Harish Natarajan, who holds the world record for most debate victories, in an event held in San Francisco that was broadcasted live world-wide. In this talk I will tell the story of Project Debater, from conception to a climatic final event, describe its underlying technology, and discuss how it can be leveraged for advancing decision making and critical thinking.

Keynote II: "Current Challenges in Computational Social Science"
Meeyoung Cha (KAIST)
09:00 – 10:00
AWE Hall 2C

Artificial intelligence (AI) is reshaping business and science. Computational social science is an interdisciplinary field that solves complex societal problems by adopting AI-driven methods, processes, algorithms, and systems on data of various forms. This talk will review some of the latest advances in the research that focuses on fake news and legal liability. I will first discuss the structural, temporal, and linguistic traits of fake news propagation. One emerging challenge here is the increasing use of automated bots to generate and propagate false information. I will also discuss the current issues on the legal liability of AI and robots, particularly on how to regulate them (e.g., moral machine, punishment gap). This talk will suggest new opportunities to tackle these problems.

Keynote III: "Curiosity-driven Journey into Neural Sequence Models"
Kyunghyun Cho (New York University)
09:00 – 10:00
AWE Hall 2C

In this talk, I take the audience on a tour of my earlier and recent experiences in building neural sequence models. I start from the earlier experience of using a recurrent net for sequence-to-sequence learning and talk about the attention mechanism. I discuss factors behind the success of these earlier approaches, and how these were embraced by the community even before they sota’d. I then move on to more recent research direction in unconventional neural sequence models that automatically learn to decide on the order of generation.
