The Internet of Things (IoT) is enabling nowadays several applications/services in academic/industrial disciplines. Due to the rapid proliferation of smart and mobile devices in the IoT era, the Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques are evolving very fast towards more comfort and personalized environments. The successful utilization of the AI-empowered IoT technology in surrounding environments will enable safer solutions, lower overall cost, improved data-centric practice, and enhanced sustainability. Efficient IoT-enabled intelligence can be realized by providing highly customized access to rich data sets and efficient learning techniques to everyone with smooth interoperability. Next Generation Networks (NGNs) are at the heart of this concept, and their development is a key issue in any emerging intelligent system if such concept is to be achieved. Hence, the Special Issue is planned to be dedicated for addressing major challenges in realizing intelligence in the forthcoming IoT-based systems. Challenges vary from cost and energy efficiency to security and service quality. To tackle such challenges, intelligent systems and NGNs have to meet certain expectations and requirements, such as energy consumption, manufacturing costs, resistance to environmental factors existing at deployment locations, etc. Accordingly, we seek original and high-quality submissions related to one or more of the following topics.


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

  • Intelligence in IoT-based paradigms
  • Smart applications in the IoT era
  • Deep learning in communication networks
  • Machine learning in IoT/5G paradigms
  • Sustainable computing and intelligence in IoT
  • Communication systems in next generation IoT paradigms
  • Sustainable computing for smart environments
  • Intelligent biomedical engineering in the IoT era
  • Energy harvesting and sustainability in the IoT era
  • System security, trust and privacy in a IoT-enabled environments
  • IoT and the emerging artificial intelligence in medical applications
  • AI and IoT-empowered health care
  • Intelligence in the Internet of Everything (IoE)Soft computing and the AI-empowered IoT
  • Mobile computing and intelligence in the emerging IoT paradigms Security aspects in AI-empowered IoT
  • Intelligent clouds and edge computing
  • Performance evaluation methods for intelligent IoT systems
