CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS
The 2nd International Workshop on Chance Discovery (CDWS2)
in PRICAI 2002
August 19, 2002
National Center of Sciences, Tokyo, Japan
Workshop Themes: [Chance Discovery: How to discover and suggest events causing potentially significant events?]
Chance Discovery is the discovery of chance, rather than discovery
by chance. A ``chance" here means a new or novel event/situation that can be
conceived either as an opportunity or as a risk. The ``discovery" of
chances is of crucial importance since it may have a significant
impact on human decision making. Desirable effects of opportunities
should be actively promoted, whereas preventive measures should be
taken in the case of discovered risks. In other words, chance
discovery aims to provide means for inventing or surviving the
future, rather than predicting the future.
