Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science; Computational Linguistics; Discourse Analysis; Semantics

Meeting Description:

Human ability to communicate is incomplete without the use of humor. If a computational system is ever to approximate human communication ability or act as a competent partner in a conversation with a human, humor must be accounted for. The general goal of the proposed Symposium is to advance the state of the art in the direction of developing an AI system capable of understanding the mechanism of a joke at a level sufficient for providing a punch line to a human generated setup (even if unintentional) and conversely, for computer reacting competently to a human generated punch line that follows a setup, generated by either participant. The effort is multidisciplinary in nature, and the participants from all of the contributing disciplines, viz., computational semantics, knowledge representation, computational psychology, AI theory, humanoid robotics, human-computer interface, human factors, to name just a few, are invited to participate.

TBA in June 2012
