It has been widely accepted that Artificial Intelligence (AI) will impact almost every part of our life in the near future. It in the large is concerned with computing technologies that allow machines to see, hear, talk, think, learn, and solve problems even above the level of human beings. On the one hand it allows business decisions to be driven by real-time models that enable unprecedented levels of accuracy and efficiency. On the other hand it enables general and professional problem solving and knowledge discovery that cannot be easily done by humans. In addition, business-business, business-customer, and customer-customer may be interconnected in a revolutionary way to support new business models with elevated customer experiences.
The ai4i conference, technically sponsored by IEEE, is an international forum focusing on incorporating AI into business products and services that may be brought to the market in the near future. An important mission of ai4i is to bridge problems and solutions in every industry segment. With such the conference invites academic researchers and industry practitioners to submit a 4-page (regular), 2-page (short), and 1-page (position) paper that addresses a specific problem, solution, or both. The conference also invites business practitioners to integrate problems and solutions into useful products and services.
Another major function of ai4i is education. The ai4i conference provides tutorials to prepare and engage professionals of all industries. Yet another major function of ai4i is to establish a community of talents that together can facilitate the transition of the world into a new era.
