Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the rapid development of the Internet of Things (IoT), including Industrial IoT and Home IoT, sensors and IoT devices are starting to play an ever increasingly important role in various fields such as smart grids, power plants, manufacturing, and supply chains. Such sensors and IoT-based systems could be vulnerable to various cyber attacks. As an innovative data-driven paradigm, artificial intelligence (AI) has revolutionized several classical areas such as image, video, speech, and text processing. However, when applying to mitigating cyberattacks, the inherent limitations of AI such as data-dependent, weak generalization, and lack of explanability have obstructed the development of AI-driven cybersecurity. Furthermore, sensors and IoT devices have imposed additional obstables, including low power, heterogenity, and weak computing power, which makes applying AI for cybersecurity even more challenging. In this Special Issue, we are welcoming research and development that aims to apply and improve AI to enable and empower cybersecurity in sensors and IoT-based systems.
