The 16th International Conference on Hybrid Artificial Intelligence Systems

22nd-24th September 2021

Faculty of Engineering, University of Deusto

Bilbao (Basque Country), Spain

HAIS 2021

The 16th International Conference on Hybrid Artificial Intelligence Systems (HAIS’21) combines symbolic and sub-symbolic techniques to construct more robust and reliable problem solving models. Hybrid intelligent systems are popular due to their capabilities in handling many real world complex problems, involving imprecision, uncertainty and vagueness, high-dimensionality. They provide us with the opportunity to use both, our knowledge and row data to solve problems in a more interesting and promising way.
HAIS Series of Conferences provides an interesting opportunity to present and discuss the latest theoretical advances and real-world applications in this multidisciplinary research field.

Joint event conference SOCO-CISIS-ICEUTE 2021
