Special Session on Artificial Intelligence technologies in Internet of Things (IoT)

IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence WCCI 2020 , Glasgow, Scotland (UK), July 19 - 24, 2020

Scope and Aim:

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has found applications in the design of almost all the real-life systems around us. The major driving force behind the AI has been computational intelligence (CI) techniques such as machine learning, deep learning, fuzzy systems, and evolutionary algorithms. These CI techniques have been used individually or collectively to model various aspects of dynamic and complex real-world problems.

The CI techniques have been successfully used in the Internet of Things (IoT) applications to enable large scale data processing and provide sustainable computing infrastructure at different levels. Such IoT applications use the CI techniques to process the sensor data and aid in maintenance as well as prediction. These predictions enable decision making in scenarios that span a large spectrum of daily as well as industrial tasks, leading to the development of commonly known “smart systems”. The developments of these systems are accompanied by various issues such as robustness, scalability, and security.

With the ongoing research in the field of CI and IoT, we can be sure that CI techniques will successfully tackle these issues in the future.

The aim of this special session is to provide a platform to the scientists and researchers of these fields to exchange ideas about the latest trends and research directions. Researchers are invited to submit original and unpublished works that deal with various aspects of research in CI and IoT. Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Data Analytics middleware for IoT
  • Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)
  • Intelligent analytics and predictive maintenance
  • Edge-node-driven data analytics
  • Case studies for data analytics using CI techniques with focus on IoT
  • IoT for Industrial Logistics
  • IoT for Smart Homes/Intelligent Environments
  • IoT for Biomedical/Healthcare Data and Imaging
  • IoT for Robotics/Humanitarian Science and Technology
  • IoT Devices for smart cities and villages
  • IoT for Human-Computer Interaction
  • Advanced CI techniques (eg: Deep Learning, Machine learning, Fuzzy Systems) applied to IoT
