Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Connecting billions of devices that exchange data without any central coordination is what makes the Internet of Things (IoT) one of today’s most promising technologies. Handling such a wide amount of data is extremely complex and therefore, recently, AI was put to use for a more efficient IoT.

AI in IoT can improve the value of data gathered by IoT devices. This data will provide solutions for the development of more efficient products and services that will fulfill final user expectations.

The realization of IoT depends on being able to obtain insights that are hidden in the vast and growing seas of available data. Since current approaches do not scale to IoT volumes, the future realization of IoT’s promise is dependent on Artificial Intelligence methods to find the patterns, correlations and anomalies that have the potential to enable improvements in almost every facet of our daily lives.

As an example, possible future uses of AI-Powered IoT Devices are security and access devices, emotional analysis, facial recognition, self-driving vehicles, personal health tracking, etc. However, many issues still need to be solved, such as the following: what decisions are suited for AI? where can they be made? How can the decisions be made? How can they be propagated? What is the Impact?

This Special Issue on AI for IoT seeks original, previously unpublished papers empirically addressing key issues and challenges related with the design, implementation, deployment, operation, and evaluation of novel approaches based on the use of AI solutions for the Internet of Things.
