Special Issue Call for Papers:

Artificial Intelligence (AI), especially Deep Learning (DL), have made tremendous advancements and caused transformations of many industry sectors. Advanced AI methods impose high demands on computation and communication capacity for data collection, preprocessing, transmission and model training. Powerful hardware like GPUs and FPGAs are used, often in the cloud, to accelerate the computation-intensive model training tasks. On the other hand, tasks such as data pre-processing and model inference still need to be executed on resource-constrained edge devices. These tasks are also becoming increasingly complex and resource-intensive with the rapid advancement of Deep Learning. This Special Issue aims to address the challenges associated with deployment of the state-of-the-art AI methods in edge computing and IoT use cases due to limited computation and communication resources. Topics of interest include (but not limited to):

  • Novel AI models and systems for Edge Computing and IoT
  • Security and privacy in Edge Computing and IoT
  • Robust AI for Edge Computing and IoT
  • Novel AI-enhanced M2M communication systems
  • Novel AI techniques for Intelligent Transportation Systems
  • Novel research on Graph Convolution Networks
