Special Issue "Machine Learning and Intelligent Agents Applications: from Data Mining to Business Intelligence"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 April 2021.
Interests: computer science; Artificial Intelligence
In the mid-1990s, terms such as data mining, machine learning, or intelligent agents began to be part of the vocabulary not only of the academic world but also of companies encouraged by the digitization of companies and institutions. Initially, the techniques and methods associated with these terms were used as non-priority task support tools in companies, but over time, they became in the core of the business. In the last two decades, the number of applications of different machine learning techniques and intelligent agents has experienced exponential growth either directly named or under the umbrella of terms such as data mining, business intelligence, or data analytics.
The exponential growth of the data available for analysis allows companies to have an asset that they can put at the service of the business through the application of machine learning and intelligent agents. In this Special Issue, we are particularly interested in the application of machine learning techniques and intelligent agents aimed at turning data into insights that are actable by companies/institutions. We encourage submissions of conceptual, empirical, and literature review work that focuses on this field.
Possible topics of interest include but are not limited to machine learning and intelligent agents and their impact on:
- Economics and finance;
- Supply chain management;
- Human resources management;
- Creating values;
- Customer management;
- Ethical aspects;
- Sustainable development;
- Agent-based simulation.
