Topics surrounding crossmodal learning are increasingly discussed and debated by AI-experts, members of the industry, policy makers and citizens of all countries. While citizens are amazed and concerned alike by trends towards machine learning, human-robot interaction and sensory-driven motor behavior, researchers and industry are breaking down barriers and pushing towards new developments in artificial intelligence. Additionally, policy makers and law enforcement agencies are fiercely discussing the use of intelligent and learning machines in our daily life, e.g. in medical devices for monitoring people with impaired mobility to combat their illness or in police-action and the military.

Crossmodal learning refers to the adaptive, synergistic synthesis of complex perceptions from multiple sensory modalities, such that the learning that occurs within any individual sensory modality can be enhanced with information from one or more other modalities. Crossmodal learning is a broad, interdisciplinary topic that has not yet coalesced into a single, unified field. Instead, there are many separate fields, each tackling the concerns of crossmodal learning from its own perspective, with currently little overlap.

By bringing together researchers from different universities and different countries, all with outstanding expertise in crossmodal learning, the panel discussion will enable a multilayered analysis of current developments, new findings, theories and systems. The debate moderated by Professor Frank Steinicke, Universität Hamburg, Germany, will ensure an engaging and critical discussion by leading experts in their fields.
