The innovative training network (ITN) on "learninG, pRocessing, And oPtimising shapES" (GRAPES), funded by the EU's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, with 17 partners from all over Europe, will come to Lugano for its second doctoral school, hosted by the Faculty of Informatics and organized by Prof. Hormann. Keynote speakers from all over the world will come to USI's Campus Est to participate in the second GRAPES doctoral school. The thematic focus of the event is on Computer-Aided Design in its broadest sense, covering the historical development of the field, latest research results, applications, and the relevance for industry.

In memory of the Federal Councillor Stefano Franscini, a native ofTicino, the Congressi Stefano Franscini (CSF), hosted at Monte Verità in Ascona, provide a meeting platform for scientific exchange. Prof. Hormann is organizing an international CSF workshop on the interdisciplinary topic of generalized barycentric coordinates. From June 1 to June 4, researchers from all over the world will flock to the Monte Verità to discuss the latest discoveries in the theoryof generalized barycentric coordinates and their applications in computer graphics and computational mechanics.

Understanding mental illnesses requires looking at a variety of different factors contributing to the development, persistence, and treatment of mental illness. That is, scientists must take into account the role of, e.g., behavioral, psychological, neurophysiological, genetic, pharmacological and environmental influences on psychopathology. To integrate real-world data regarding such varied factors, complex computational models have been raising high hopes. In this talk, I shall examine the vices and virtues of recent multiplex approaches for grasping psychopathology.

AI is growing to play an increasingly important role in the decision environments of human agents. One of the key challenges here is AI influence - an aspect that seems largely unaddressed in current debates around AI Ethics. In this talk, I aim to shed some light on the notion of AI influence and the problems that surround it. In the first part of this talk, I will outline what exactly I mean by AI influence. For this, I will introduce what I call the objectivity-fallacy, and will differentiate between cases of intended and unintended AI influence. The second part of this talk will then focus on the ethical implications of unintended AI influence. I hope to emphasise an important change in the power dynamics in human-AI interaction, and will outline how unintended AI influence changes the roles and thereto related responsibilities in human-AI interaction.
