1st International Workshop on Pervasive Artificial Intelligence

Hosted by the 2022 IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) is becoming a pervasive technology in ICT systems development, as well as for its presence in products and services of daily use. In particular, a pervasive use of neural-based methodologies and technologies comes at the cost of increased functional and non-functional requirements related to fundamental properties, such as energy efficiency, ability to continuously adapt to changing conditions and tasks, dependability, security and human-machine interactivity. Such requirements, while compelling, can also be seen as research opportunities to design and develop novel neural network methodologies and architectures which are efficient and effective in meeting such requirements, e.g. developing continual learning strategies for lifelong adaptation, or randomized networks to facilitate learning on constrained devices. Pervasiveness has another side of the coin linked to the need of developing computing and communication technologies specifically meant to support deployment and execution of neural models, e.g. neuromorphic hardware, or high-performance computing for AI acceleration. The workshop provides a first forum of scientific discussion and dissemination for a community and works bringing together the two aspects of the coin, under the umbrella of Pervasive Artificial Intelligence. The workshop will host contributions related to both novel AI methodologies, models and applications in pervasive scenarios, as well as computing and communication abstractions, infrastructures and applications for AI. Special attention will be devoted to contributions tackling the theme of sustainable AI and resulting from academia-industry collaborations.
