BIH series provides a premier forum that brings together researchers and practitioners from neuroscience, cognitive science, computer science, data science, artificial intelligence, information communication technologies, and neuroimaging technologies with the purpose of exploring the fundamental roles, interactions as well as practical impacts of Brain Informatics.
BIH'16 addresses the computational, cognitive, physiological, biological, physical, ecological and social perspectives of brain informatics, with a strong emphasis on emerging trends of big data analysis and management technology for brain research, behaviour learning, and real-world applications of brain science in human health and well-being.
BIH'16 welcomes paper submissions (full paper and abstract submissions). Both research and application papers are solicited. All submitted papers will be reviewed on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance and clarity. Accepted full papers will be included in the proceedings by Springer LNCS/LNAI.
A Celebration of the 60th Anniversary of AI
The Brain Informatics & Health (BIH) 2016 conference is dedicated to Artificial Intelligence (AI) while at a time we celebrate the pass of the sixth decade, since AI was ever introduced to the scientific research community by our pioneers. In the past years, the attempt by brain scientists to understand how the human brain works has never stopped. Meanwhile, the AI researchers also have been striving to formalize the structure and function of human brain, aiming at creating computers and computer software with capacity of intelligent behavior. By integrating techniques and academic researchers, abundant brain-inspired achievements have been yielded. Recently, the so-called neuromorphic computer architectures-chips, that mimic the human brain's ability to be both analytical and intuitive to deliver context and meaning to big data, have been invented and showed us the promising future of AI. There is never been a more exciting moment than now, in neuroscience, cognitive science, computer science, and AI. Brain Informatics (BI) has extended and made use of artificial intelligence for new products, services and frameworks that are empowered by the World Wide Web. By means of brain data collected globally and systematic researches on the human brain across macro, meso, and micro scales, i.e., mind and behavior, brain cognition and structure, neuronal morphology and gene, BI is committed to developing a big data sharing mind on the Wisdom Web of Things (W2T), and disclosing the intrinsic qualities of human intelligence.
As a part of the celebration to the sixty years of AI, BIH'16 will be co-located with Web Intelligence (WI) 2016, and proudly host two distinguished brain scientists, Dr. Stephen Smith and Dr. Ivan Soltesz as the BIH keynote speakers, as well as two Turing Award laureates, Dr. Leslie Valiant (Turing Award 2010) and Dr. Butler Lampson (Turing Award 1992) as the WI keynote speakers, for the community to share with their intelligent, wisdom minds. We also will organize a panel on Connecting Network and Brain with Big Data and invite keynote/feature speakers of the 2 conferences as panelists.
