Workshop IV: Social Dynamics beyond Vehicle Autonomy
30 Nov 2020 - 04 Dec 2020 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
In some application fields, automation will eventually remove humans from the loop, and autonomous systems will operate far away from any human agents. Not so with autonomous vehicles. Recent trends in urbanization are showing that future cities will flourish with human activity and autonomous vehicles will need to actively work with and around the humans. The development of autonomous vehicles can therefore not be undertaken without a better understanding of human nature. At the same time, with full autonomy, a fundamental paradigm shift will occur in how we, as humans and as a society, will see, perceive, and interpret the process of driving. This workshop brings together researchers from a variety of disciplines, including experts on social/behavioral, ethics, legal, and policy aspects, as well as researchers working on other heterogeneous systems that can serve as inspirations.

FCFNMD-OSN — Fact-Checking, Fake News and Malware Detection in Online Social Networks
11 Dec 2020 - 13 Dec 2020 • online, United States
We live in an era where people are witnessing floods of data online, generated as a result of performing online activities, mainly social media. Some people publish deceptive or fabricated online stories, posts, and news to attract online users, change their state of mind, or make political or financial gains. It is typically carried out with the help of automatic bots to accelerate fake news dissemination. A multitude of research is going on for tracing the surge of falsehoods through automated fact-checking techniques. The developed solution should be fully automated, accountable, instant, and accurate. It should be able to extract sentences from textual or audio clips, distinguish between facts, opinions, and questions, examine and match the data, and finally yield the results with proper explanations. Therefore, Artificial Intelligence is the best suite solution that is being applied for the verification of the claims made in the published stories or news. Specifically, this process involves using Natural Language Processing (NLP), deep learning algorithms, and other AI tools to find, monitor, and match claims. There is vast potential in AI to control fake news spread on the Internet with the help of automated fact-checking. It involves societal, political, ethical, and financial aspects of society. It is an emerging domain that still requires many improvements in approach, tools, and platforms. This special track aims at providing a platform for academic and industrialist researchers and practitioners to exchange and publish the challenges, latest research trends, and results on fact-checking, fake news, and malware detection in online social networks (OSNs).
