The integration of artificial intelligence and computer vision technologies has become a topic of increasing interest for both researchers and developers from academic fields and industries worldwide. It is foreseeable that artificial intelligence will be the main approach of the next generation of computer vision research. The explosive number of artificial intelligence algorithms and increasing computational power of computers have significantly extended the number of potential applications for computer vision. It has also brought new challenges to the vision community.
This is the third special section of Computers and Electrical Engineering on artificial intelligence and computer vision: the first two were published in July 2017 and July 2018, and the next one will be published in January 2020. We expect to have more special sections on this topic as the area is open to new developments with many innovative and highly productive research.
Authors are invited to submit outstanding and original unpublished research manuscripts focused on the latest findings in artificial intelligence and computer vision. The topics of interest are:
Theoretical Foundations of Artificial Intelligence
3D Scene Reconstruction
Explainable Deep Learning
Pattern Recognition and Machine Vision
Internet of Visual Networks
Intelligent Medical Imaging and Processing
Extreme Optical Vision
User Experience for Big Multimedia Systems
Vision-based Robotic Manipulation
Mixed Reality/Augmented Reality for Computer Vision
