Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Compared to synthetic mathematical problems, real-world problems pose distinct challenges and involve complex systems with interdependent components, which require advanced modelling and analysis techniques. Nonlinear behaviour, dependencies, and uncertainties further complicate the task, and require advanced machine learning methods that are capable of capturing such intricacies. Real-world applications must also grapple with massive datasets, leading to computational and memory constraints. To address these limitations, emerging methodologies such as transfer learning, federated learning, and quantum machine learning, must ensure their efficiency and scalability while processing extensive volumes of data. This Special Issue seeks submissions that not only present advanced techniques in this area, but also demonstrate improvements in their scalability and efficiency compared to existing approaches. The deployment of machine learning methods in real-world environments is of particular interest in this Issue. Case studies detailing the practical benefits and implementation challenges of these methods are invited. Discussions on the societal, ethical, and regulatory implications of deploying advanced machine learning systems are encouraged. Additionally, this Special Issue emphasizes techniques that accommodate the computational demands of large-scale datasets; benchmark datasets and evaluation metrics play a crucial role in addressing complex real-world problems.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. AI 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) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
