Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue of MDPI’s Future Internet journal, entitled “Distributed Systems and Artificial Intelligence”, is devoted to topics related to recent trends and progress made in the field of distributed systems and artificial intelligence. However, this Special Issue is not limited to papers that consider only these two fields and their connection. Original and innovative contributions that include big data, security, computer modeling, data science, and distributed e-learning experiments are also invited.

For the past few years, research and development at the levels of academia, industry, business, and government have been devoted to the development of distributed systems and artificial intelligence, which are at the core of many things integrated in our daily life, such as the Internet, Facebook, Amazon, and mobile applications, to name just a few. Here, we aim to emphasize the connection between the two fields of distributed systems and artificial intelligence. However, papers belonging to each separate domain are also welcome. The topics that will be considered in this Special Issue include but are not limited to software engineering issues related to distributed systems, deep learning, neuronal networks, distributed artificial intelligence, and parallel computing; applications in various fields, such as industry, bioinformatics, chemistry, and physics; mathematics issues related to distributed systems and artificial intelligence; and other issues concerning big data, security, distributed e-learning experiments, and data science. All these prospective topics bring with them numerous research challenges and opportunities. This is an open call for contributions to the Special Issue “Distributed Systems and Artificial Intelligence”.

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 papers will be 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. Future Internet is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs).

Federated learning is a novel distributed learning framework, which enables thousands of participants to collaboratively construct a deep learning model. In order to protect confidentiality of the training data, the shared information between server and participants are only limited to model parameters. However, this setting is vulnerable to model poisoning attack, since the participants have permission to modify the model parameters. In this paper, we perform systematic investigation for such threats in federated learning and propose a novel optimization-based model poisoning attack. Different from existing methods, we primarily focus on the effectiveness, persistence and stealth of attacks. Numerical experiments demonstrate that the proposed method can not only achieve high attack success rate, but it is also stealthy enough to bypass two existing defense methods. Full article

The social and technological changes that society is undergoing in this century are having a global influence on important aspects such as the economy, health and education. An example of this is the inclusion of artificial intelligence in the teaching–learning processes. The objective of this study was to analyze the importance and the projection that artificial intelligence has acquired in the scientific literature in the Web of Science categories related to the field of education. For this, scientific mapping of the reported documents was carried out. Different bibliometric indicators were analyzed and a word analysis was carried out. We worked with an analysis unit of 379 publications. The results show that scientific production is irregular from its beginnings in 1956 to the present. The language of greatest development is English. The most significant publication area is Education Educational Research, with conference papers as document types. The underlying organization is the Open University UK. It can be concluded that there is an evolution in artificial intelligence (AI) research in the educational field, focusing in the last years on the performance and influence of AI in the educational processes.
