Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) have profoundly impacted various fields, such as cybersecurity, big data analytics, digital twins, internet of things (IoT), image processing, cloud computing, agriculture, and industry 4.0. In particular, AI and ML techniques have achieved rapid technological improvement by overcoming various problems that traditional solutions were not able to address. However, the current AI and ML models have significant limits and difficulties, restricting their use to handling specific problems in limited areas. AI and ML solutions of the next generation will presumably eliminate the shortcomings of the current generation. Researchers and practitioners are working on a variety of areas to realize next-gen AI, including improved explainability, trust, and reliability; new AI paradigms, such as federated learning, bio-inspired AI models, neuro-symbolic AI, and quantum AI; specialized AI hardware, software, and data models; enhanced AI–human collaboration (collaborative intelligence); and efforts to move closer to artificial general intelligence (AGI).

As a result, this Special Issue aims to offer a distinctive academic forum for presenting recent advances in AI and ML techniques and applications across various fields. In addition to original research articles, we encourage surveys, experience reports, and case studies on the latest developments and applications of AI.

The topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Next-gen AI applications (in environmental science, green information and communication technologies, digital twins, industry, healthcare, automotive, financial services, manufacturing, agriculture, and other areas);
  • green artificial intelligence;
  • artificial intelligence for cybersecurity;
  • artificial intelligence for image processing;
  • artificial intelligence and blockchain technologies;
  • artificial intelligence and big data;
  • artificial intelligence and IoT;
  • artificial intelligence and cloud computing;
  • artificial intelligence and edge computing;
  • security and trustworthiness of AI.

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. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
