HCOMP Workshop

This all-day workshop (on 5 July 2018 in conjunction with the HCOMP conference in Zürich Switzerland) has the aim of promoting research convergence among participants on topics related to future forms of work (i.e., humans doing their jobs) with intelligent machines. We define intelligent machines as computing technologies characterized by autonomy, the ability to learn, and the ability to interact with other systems and with humans: robots and algorithms interacting with people.
