Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the increasing volume, velocity, and variety of data available, big data analytics and artificial intelligence have become central technology drivers and disruptors of entire industries. On a technological level, the enormous amount of new data generated every day poses a challenge for traditional database and information systems. To cope with this challenge, both research and practice are increasingly employing big data analytics and artificial intelligence, starting with determining the ways to store and share large amounts of data; dealing with data quality and uncertainty; asking the right data-focused question(s); employing state-of-the-art methods for data analysis; and, increasingly, deploying an array of artificial intelligence approaches and technologies, such as machine learning, natural language processing, and robotics.

Big data analytics and artificial intelligence challenge traditional expertise and governance mechanisms, thereby sometimes leading to reorganizing established value chains and altering business ecosystems. At the same time, they leverage new opportunities in areas as diverse as market intelligence, marketing and commerce, government, healthcare, and academic research—to name just a few.

The purpose of this future Internet Special Issue is to provide a forum for interdisciplinary research that builds on the latest advancements of big data and artificial intelligence. We very much welcome both empirical and theoretical contributions grounded on any established research paradigm.
