Workshop Overview

As far back as the industrial revolution, great leaps in technical innovation succeeded in transforming numerous manual tasks and processes that had been in existence for decades where humans had reached the limits of physical capacity. Artificial Intelligence (AI) offers this same transformative potential for the augmentation and potential replacement of human intelligence within a wide range of industrial, intellectual and social applications. The pace of change for this new AI technological age is staggering, with new breakthroughs in algorithmic machine learning and autonomous decision making engendering new opportunities for continued innovation.

The ability for AI to overcome some of the computationally intensive, intellectual and even creative limitations of humans, opens up new application domains within manufacturing, health, finance and education with resulting impacts on productivity and performance. AI enabled systems within organisations are expanding rapidly, transforming business (Daugherty & Wilson 2018; Miller 2018) and extending their reach into what would normally be seen as exclusively human domains. However, whilst this disruptive potential for some may be the next stage of an exciting technological phase, for other sections of society impacted by the redesign of business models and change of interaction, AI is a threat to society, a job killer and a backward step for the human race (Cellan-Jones 2014; Rawlinson 2015). Society is yet to fully grasp many of the ethical considerations associated with AI and its wider impact on human life and culture (Duan et al. 2019).

This workshop aims to bring together a variety of disciplines and a community for the advancement of knowledge regarding opportunities and challenges posed by fast emergence and applications of Artificial Intelligence in various domains. To achieve this goal, we are inviting researchers, practitioners from both private and public sectors for presenting their ideas and thoughts at the Workshop on the theme of “Artificial Intelligence (AI): Emerging Challenges, Opportunities, and Agenda for Research and Practice” to be held at the School of Management, Swansea University, UK on 13th June 2019.

Trosolwg o'r Gweithdy

Mor bell yn ôl â'r chwyldro diwydiannol, llwyddodd camau bras mewn arloesi technolegol i drawsnewid nifer o dasgau a phrosesau ymarferol a oedd wedi bodoli ers degawdau lle'r roedd pobl wedi cyrraedd terfyn eu gallu corfforol. Mae Deallusrwydd Artiffisial yn cynnig yr un math o botensial trawsnewid i ychwanegu at ddeallusrwydd dynol ac, o bosib, ei ddisodli, mewn amrywiaeth eang o weithrediadau diwydiannol, deallusol a chymdeithasol. Mae cyflymdra newid yn yr oes dechnolegol newydd hon o ddeallusrwydd artiffisial yn syfrdanol, gyda datblygiadau newydd ym maes dysgu peirianyddol algorithmig a phenderfynu awtomataidd, yn creu cyfleoedd newydd ar gyfer gwelliant parhaus.

Mae gallu deallusrwydd artiffisial i oresgyn rhai o'r heriau cyfrifiadol dwys, deallusol a hyd yn oed creadigol sydd y tu hwnt i allu dynol yn agor meysydd gweithredu newydd posib mewn gweithgynhyrchu, iechyd, cyllid ac addysg, gan greu effaith ar gynhyrchiant a pherfformiad. Mae systemau a weithredir gan ddeallusrwydd artiffisial yn ehangu'n gyflym mewn sefydliadau, gan drawsnewid busnes (Daugherty & Wilson 2018); Miller 2018) ac estyn eu cyrhaeddiad i feysydd a fyddai'n cael eu hystyried fel arfer yn feysydd dynol yn unig. Fodd bynnag, er y gallai rhai weld y potensial aflonyddu hwn fel cam nesaf cyfnod technolegol cyffrous, i rannau eraill o gymdeithas sy'nwynebu effeithiau ail-ddylunio modelau busnes a newid dulliau rhyngweithio, mae deallusrwydd artiffisial yn fygythiad i gymdeithas, sy'n lladd swyddi ac yn gam yn ôl ar gyfer dynolryw. (Cellan-Jones 2014; Rawlinson 2015). “Society is yet to fully grasp many of the ethical considerations associated with AI and its wider impact on human life and culture” (Duan et al. (Duan et al.) 2019).

Nod y gweithdy hwn yw dod ag amrywiaeth o ddisgyblaethau ynghyd a chreu cymuned er mwyn gwella gwybodaeth ynghylch y cyfleoedd a'r heriau sy'n deillio o ddatblygiad cyflym a chymwysiadau deallusrwydd artiffisial mewn meysydd amrywiol. I gyflawni'r nod hwn, rydym yn gwahodd ymchwilwyr ac ymarferwyr o'r sector cyhoeddus a'r sector preifat i gyflwyno eu syniadau a'u meddyliau yn y gweithdy ar y thema "Deallusrwydd Artiffisial: Heriau a Chyfleoedd sy'n dod i'r amlwg ac Agenda ar gyfer Ymchwil ac Ymarfer" i'w gynnal yn yr Ysgol Reolaeth, Prifysgol, y DU ar 13 Mehefin 2019.
