Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Relying on the extensive application of the Internet, social networks not only have a large number of users, but also overcome the constraints of geographical location, time and social role to narrow the distance between users, making communication costs lower and timeliness stronger, making them the preferred platform for people to make friends, interact and obtain information. The emerging social network paradigm provides enormous novel approaches for efficient and advanced networking communications, data analysis and platform construction, etc. 

With the development of artificial intelligence technology, combined with emerging artificial intelligence technology, the ability of social network data mining can be improved. Therefore, a series of new theories, methods and technologies have emerged. This Special Issue will bring together researchers and developers in academic, practical and industrial fields to focus on artificial intelligence technology and social network analysis.

In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Artificial intelligence technology and social network analysis;
  • Group intelligence collaboration, group intelligence perception and collaborative evolutionary computing;
  • Human-like intelligent collaboration and emotional computing;
  • Collaborative knowledge engineering, knowledge atlas and graph knowledge management;
  • Social network and group intelligence behavior analysis;
  • Social and online collaborative teaching systems and applications;
  • Collaborative application of education big data analysis and education resources;
  • Teaching evaluation and learning behavior analysis;
  • Education robot and artificial intelligence education;
  • Application of collaborative intelligence in other fields.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

With the popularization of better network access and the penetration of personal smartphones in today’s world, the explosion of multi-modal data, particularly opinionated video messages, has created urgent demands and immense opportunities for Multi-Modal Sentiment Analysis (MSA). Deep learning with the attention mechanism has served as the foundation technique for most state-of-the-art MSA models due to its ability to learn complex inter- and intra-relationships among different modalities embedded in video messages, both temporally and spatially. However, modal fusion is still a major challenge due to the vast feature space created by the interactions among different data modalities. To address the modal fusion challenge, we propose an MSA algorithm based on deep learning and the attention mechanism, namely the Mixture of Attention Variants for Modal Fusion (MAVMF). The MAVMF algorithm includes a two-stage process: in stage one, self-attention is applied to effectively extract image and text features, and the dependency relationships in the context of video discourse are captured by a bidirectional gated recurrent neural module; in stage two, four multi-modal attention variants are leveraged to learn the emotional contributions of important features from different modalities. Our proposed approach is end-to-end and has been shown to achieve a superior performance to the state-of-the-art algorithms when tested with two largest public datasets, CMU-MOSI and CMU-MOSEI.
