Special Issue Information

The Internet of Things paradigm enables various smart objects to be connected to the Internet. This, in turn, enables smart applications that allow us to interact with our environment in an intelligent way. However, in order to achieve the full potential of IoT applications, we need AI techniques to analyze the data produced by IoT objects. AI techniques are needed to analyze the data in order to extract insights and actionable knowledge.

The use of AI approaches to analyze IoT data faces several challenges due to data heterogeneity and limited resources of most IoT objects. On the one hand, the data cannot be processed in the objects and on the other hand processing data using AI techniques in the cloud incurs a substantial amount of latency. Thus, edge-based AI techniques are required that can process the data on the edge near the applications and objects. The idea is that edge AI infrastructure will process the data in order to minimize the delay and will cooperate with the central cloud for the processing that cannot be done on the edge.

This Special Issue targets AI techniques and data processing applied to the Internet of Things. The focus will be on edge AI techniques applied to IoT data and applications. This will enable the distribution of the intelligence of IoT applications across the cloud and the edge.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Edge AI for IoT
  • Distributed data processing for IoT
  • Distributed reasoning for IoT
  • Edge AI architecture
  • Distributed AI algorithms
  • Distributed ML for IoT
  • Federated learning for IoT
  • Reinforcement learning for IoT
  • Edge machine learning for energy efficiency in IoT
  • Edge AI vs cloud AI for IoT

Manuscript Submission Information

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. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
