In the past decade, the computer and information industry has experienced rapid changes, in both the platform scale and the scope of applications. Computers, smart phones, clouds, and social networks demand, not only high performance, but also a high degree of machine intelligence. In fact, we are entering an era of big data analysis and cognitive computing. This trendy movement is observed by the pervasive use of mobile phones, storage and computing clouds, the revival of artificial intelligence in practice, extended supercomputer applications, and wide spread deployment of Internet of Things (IoT) platforms. To face these new computing and communication paradigms, we must upgrade the cloud and IoT ecosystems with new capabilities, such as machine learning, IoT sensing, and data analytics that can provide humans with cognitive services.
In the big data era, successful cloud systems, web services, and datacenters must be designed to store, process, learn, and analyze big data to discover new knowledge or make critical decisions. The purpose is to build up a big data industry to provide cognitive services to offset human shortcomings in handling labor-intensive tasks with high efficiency. These goals are achieved through hardware virtualization, machine learning, deep learning, IoT sensing, data analytics, and cognitive computing. For example, new cloud services have appeared, such as Learning as a Services (LaaS), Analytics as a Service (AaaS), or Security as a Service (SaaS), along with the growing practices of machine learning and data analytics.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Big Data and Cognitive Computing is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) is waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted to this issue. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
