The symposium started with the organizers presenting a broad range of physical data structure examples from biology and robotics.
The titles of the eight symposia were Artificial Intelligence and Health Communication, Artificial Intelligence and Sustainable Design, Artificial Intelligence for Business Agility, Computational Physiology, Help Me Help You: Bridging the Gaps in Human-Agent Collaboration, Logical Formalizations of Commonsense Reasoning, Multirobot Systems and Physical Data Structures, and Modeling Complex Adaptive Systems As If They Were Voting Processes.
The goal of this symposium was to begin to reason about performing computation using these physical data structures.
Recovering a normalized logical data model together with the associated business rules, policies, and physical data structures is difficult, human-performed analysis even with this systematic reverse engineering framework (including model management and appropriate modeling approach).
