CAAI-AIDL has been successfully held three times. The first three themes were "How Deep Learning Promotes AI Development" (Academic Director: Jianhua TAO), "Machine Learning Frontier" (Academic Director: Zhihua ZHOU), and "Big Data: Theory and Application" ( Academic Director: Xueqi CHENG).
AIDL4 "Intelligent Perception and Interaction"
The third wave of artificial intelligence has actually arrived. Artificial intelligence is no longer a concept, but is actually affecting people's lives. One of the main development directions of artificial intelligence is perception intelligence. Perceived intelligence, that is, perception, hearing, touch, etc. What level of perception intelligence has developed to? Has artificial intelligence approached or surpassed humans? How will machines interact with the world after they perceive it? This workshop aims to help students concentrate on the basic theory, latest developments and landing directions in this field in a short time, and promotes the mutual exchange of related practitioners in AI industry, academia and research institutions. It is of great significance to masters, doctors, young teachers, relevant practitioners of enterprises and institutions, and enthusiasts who are expected to switch to the field of AI.

Sunchun ZHU: A Cognitive Architecture for Human-Machine Teaming
Abstract: The recent advances in fields, such as vision, language and learning have inspired renewed interest in academics and the public for developing general AI machines that are capable of communicating and collaborating with humans. In the first half of this talk, I will discuss my personal assessment of the current state of AI. In short, AI is entering an era of big integration, embracing six areas:
vision, NLP, cognition, learning, robotics and social ethics (game theories). It calls for a unified representation and inference framework for a wide range of tasks. I propose my own solution --- the spatial, temporal and causal and-or graph (STC-AOG) as a unifying representation, and review some ongoing work in these areas. In the second part, I will discuss the layered infrastructures underneath human communication and collaborations, and propose a paradigm called communicative learning to formulate the complexity of human learning and communication, including the theory of mind, i.e. the beliefs and intents of others. Then I will discuss the challenges for constructing a cognitive architecture for human-machine communication and teaming, and the fundamental limit of learning. I will show a few examples of human robot collaborations.

Tao Jianhua: Multi-Channel Natural Man-Machine Dialogue
Abstract: The goal of multi-channel natural man-machine dialogue is to make the communication between computer system and users as natural and smooth as that between people. In addition to oral interaction, people will naturally use multimodal information such as expressions and gestures to assist in dialogue. The difficulty of multi-channel natural man-machine dialogue is to effectively receive, fuse and analyze the user behavior information from different channels, and accurately judge the user's intention. The report mainly introduces the development and current progress of multi-channel natural human-computer dialogue, and also discusses the future development of multi-channel natural human-computer dialogue.
