We were delighted to have out 4th international ESSENCE Workshop (29th August, 2016) on Diversity-Aware Artificial Intelligence accepted to the ECAI 2016 conference in The Hague, The Netherlands. Being part of such a prestigious and international conference was an amazing opportunity to showcase our work and network with the Artificial Intelligence community.

The workshop explored diversity as a phenomenon that both poses a challenge for AI in terms of dealing with and managing diversity in an intelligent system (or ecosystem of intelligent human and/or artificial agents) and presents an opportunity in terms of leveraging diversity (for example through processes like crowdsourcing and collaborative knowledge production) to achieve human-like (and human-friendly) capabilities in more open-ended, incrementally evolving, and interactive AI systems.
