The 1st International Workshop on Machine Reasoning: International Machine Reasoning Conference (MRC 2021)
Recent years have witnessed the success of machine learning and especially deep learning in many research areas such as Vision and Language Processing, Information Retrieval and Recommender Systems, Social Networks and Conversational Agents. Though various learning approaches have demonstrated satisfying performance in perceptual tasks such as associative learning and matching by extracting useful similarity patterns from data, the area still sees a large amount of research needed to advance the ability of reasoning towards cognitive intelligence in the coming years. This includes but is not limited to neural logical reasoning, neural-symbolic reasoning, causal reasoning, knowledge reasoning and commonsense reasoning. The workshop focuses on the research of machine reasoning techniques and their application in various intelligent tasks. It will gather researchers as well as practitioners in the field for discussions, idea communications, and research promotions. It will also generate insightful debates about the recent progress in machine intelligence to a broader community, including but not limited to CV, IR, NLP, ML, DM, AI and beyond.
