Call for Papers

This workshop is based on a new perspective of Web Intelligence (WI) research in terms of Brain Informatics (BI), which is a new interdisciplinary field to study human information processing mechanism systematically from both macro and micro points of view by cooperatively using experimental cognitive neuroscience and WI centric advanced information technology.

We argue that new noninvasive instrumentation (fMRI etc.) and advanced information technology are causing an impending revolution in Web intelligence and Brain Sciences (BS). This revolution is bi-directional: new understanding and discovery of human intelligence models in BS will yield a new generation of WI research and development; and WI based portal techniques will provide a new powerful platform for BS.

The synergy between WI with BI will yield profound advances in the analysing and understanding of the mechanism of data, knowledge, intelligence and wisdom, as well as their relationship, organization and creation process. It means that fundamental and implementation of Web intelligence will be studied as a central topic and in a unique way. It will fundamentally change the nature of information technology in general and artificial intelligence in particular, towards human-level Web intelligence.
