Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The rapid development and use of artificial intelligence in society comes with many challenges and opportunities. On many new mobile devices, artificial intelligence is integrated. The use is widespread in biometric systems such as facial comparison systems, and they have resulted in a much better performance. Additionally, many self-learning algorithms are implemented within autonomous devices such as self driving cars. With the ever-expanding Internet of Things (IoT), AI will be implemented on data from a wide range of devices. Even decisions in courts and forensic science could be assisted by artificial intelligence. Many sources mention that we have arrived at the 4th Industrial Revolution. The ethical, legal, social, and privacy issues are also having impacts on us. This Special Issue addresses the wide range of AI in society:

  • Responsible AI;
  • Explainable AI;
  • New algorithms in AI;
  • AI-powered workforce;
  • Using AI in forensic science and the courtroom;
  • AI and deepfakes, such as manipulation of video and audio.
