D3A – Danish Digitalization, Data Science and AI 2024

SAVE the dates

Danish Digitalization, Data Science and AI 2024 (D3A)

On February 1-2, 2024, we are bringing together researchers, students, and professionals from a wide range of fields to share the latest research and insights, gain new knowledge, exchange ideas, and make valuable connections across geography, scientific domains, and sub-fields. 

Danish Digitalization, Data Science and AI (D3A) is a new national conference hosted by Pioneer Centre for AI (P1), Danish Data Science Academy (DDSA) and DIREC. 

D3A is a scientific conference where the newest research and insights will be discussed. The aim is to grow the Danish digitalization, data science, and AI communities and strengthen the network for PhD students, postdocs, senior researchers, and professionals. We want to foster a collaborative and inclusive environment across Denmark. In 2024, the conference will take place on February 1-2 at Hotel Nyborg Strand.

Workshop on Verifiable and Robust AI

VRAI

Workshop on Verifiable and Robust AI

This interdisciplinary conference will consist of a combination of invited talks, panel discussions, working groups, and contributed talks and poster presentations.

Artificial intelligence, driven to a large extent by rapid advances in deep learning technology, has produced exciting results over the last decade across various different scientific disciplines and practical applications.

This success is accompanied by an increasing need for methods that explain the decisions of machine learning models, make their performance more robust under changing conditions, and can provide firm guarantees for their behavior with regard to aspects like safety, privacy preservation, and non-discrimination.

These emerging key issues for the further advancement of AI are being studied both in the AI/ML communities, as well as by researchers from the areas traditionally concerned with the safety and verification of software systems by formal methods, such as model checking and theorem proving. However, while working towards the same goals, the interaction between these different research communities has been somewhat limited. This workshop aims to bring together researchers from the AI/ML and formal methods communities for an exchange of ideas and scientific approaches for tackling the challenge of building safe, trustworthy and robust AI systems.

The workshop is supported by the Digital Research Center Denmark (DIREC). It will consist of a combination of invited talks, panel discussions, working groups, and contributed talks and poster presentations. This interdisciplinary conference will facilitate the exploration of synergies between the two fields, fostering novel collaborations and fostering the development of innovative techniques.

By uniting these scientific communities and promoting dialogue and collaboration, this workshop aims to pave the way for the development of AI systems that demonstrate remarkable performance and ensure safety, transparency, and accountability in their operation.

Selected contributions from the workshop will be published in a special issue of the International Journal on Software Tools for Technology Transfer (STTT).

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
  • Robustness against adversarial attacks
  • Robustness under domain distribution shifts
  • Fairness of machine learning models
  • Machine learning with humans-in-the-loop
  • Explaining predictions of machine learning models
  • Verification and validation of program code produced by generative AI as OpenAI Codex or GitHub CoPilot
  • Merging statistical ML and logical reasoning
  • Neuro-symbolic integration
  • Safety guarantees for machine learning models
  • Testing and evaluation protocols for machine learning models
  • Satisfiability modulo theories (SMT)
  • Integrating constraint satisfaction and machine learning
  • AI reasoning beyond prediction
  • Formal logic, domain logic, and machine learning?
  • (Non-statistical) privacy-preserving methods
  • Guarantee preservation for evolving ML models
  • Scalable formal methods for AI/ML
  • Benchmarking and evaluating the performance of AI/ML systems in safety-critical contexts
  • Case studies demonstrating successful application of formal methods and AI/ML techniques in the development of robust, verifiable AI systems

Registration

Thanks to the support from DIREC, the participation fee is reduced to DKK 1900 per person. This fee includes accommodation and full board for the duration of the workshop. Due to space and financial constraints, the number of participants is limited.

When you have registered you will receive an email within a couple of days with further information about payment etc.
