The 2021 International Conference on Intelligent Systems and Knowledge Engineering (ISKE 2021) is the 16th in a series of ISKE conferences. The conference will be held on Nov. 26-28 in Chengdu (China).

Scope and Motivation

The past decade has seen a booming development and a good number of success stories of Artificial Intelligence (AI). However, most of the developed approaches work like a black box where the interpretation of results is challenging, and therefore the output is not trustworthy to certain extent. In order to handle this problem, the research on “Explainable AI and Responsible AI” has drawn much attention recent years. On the other hand, logic can provide not only a formal way to represent problems, but also a solid theoretical foundation to guarantee the credibility of reasoning and prediction for AI approaches. Therefore, this special session intends to promote the interplay between logical approaches and machine learning based approaches in order to make AI more explainable, responsible and accountable. It aims at providing an opportunity for researchers working this research area to discuss in fundamental, approaches, methodologies, software systems, and applications, to share their novel ideas, original research results and practical experiences of logical and machine learning based methods and techniques in its broadest sense.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Multi-valued logic, Medium logic, Fuzzy logic, Possibility logic, Spatial and temporal logics
  • Logic algebra, Logic programming, Logical-based approaches
  • Automated reasoning, Approximate reasoning
  • Fuzzy connectives, Logic operators
  • Theoretical advances in interpretable machine learning
  • Combining logical and machine learning methods
  • Formal specification and verification of systems
