Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to contribute to the special issues of Big Data and Cognitive Computing: entitled “Big Data Analytics and Edge Computing: Recent Trends and Future”. The rapid development of large models brings significant technical improvement to big data analytics. Meanwhile, the development of edge computing also makes the application of big data analytical models more convenient and rapid.

The main focus of this Special Issue lies in the exploration and presentation of cutting-edge technologies at the intersection of big data analytics and edge computing. Delving into the intricacies of this dynamic field, we aim to showcase the latest advancements encompassing large models, multi-modal fusion, and an array of innovative edge computing technologies, including but not limited to image processing, video understanding, and sound recognition. Our overarching objective is to unveil pioneering technological solutions that not only drive the evolution of big data tools but also significantly impact the outcomes of big data platforms integrated with edge computing infrastructure. Beyond merely showcasing technological advancements, this Special Issue serves as a platform for researchers to delve into specific areas of big data application. We actively encourage contributions that explore the transformative potential of big data analytics in domains as diverse as healthcare, digital economics, environmental protection, etc. Through comprehensive research inquiries and insightful analyses, we aim to foster a rich dialogue that transcends disciplinary boundaries, paving the way for innovative solutions and impactful outcomes in the realm of big data and edge computing.

In this Special Issue, both original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research topics include, but are not limited to, the following topics:

  • Computer vision;
  • Natural language processing;
  • Large-scale foundation model;
  • Big data analytics in healthcare;
  • Privacy-preserving techniques in big data analytics and deep learning;
  • Blockchain and AI integration;
  • AI-powered vital sign analytics;
  • Big data and deep learning in low-carbon traffic and smart traffic;
  • Big data analysis in economics and finance;
  • Analysis of artificial intelligence model for edge computing;
  • Forecasting of large model and deep learning;
  • Digital twins and 3D reconstruction;
  • Reinforcement learning for big data analysis.
