Journal Special Issues

1. Special Issue on ‘Intelligent IoT Systems for Healthcare and Rehabilitation’

The growing trend of the aging population poses many challenges for the global society. Many of the challenges relate to the healthcare and rehabilitation needs of the elderly; these needs require significant time, resources, and manpower. The emerging field of flexible bio-mechatronic technologies, such as wearable sensors, actuators and robots, will play a crucial role in the design and development of next generation healthcare and rehabilitation systems that safely and smartly interact with human patients. Rapid advances in developing and implementing such wearable sensors, actuators, Internet of Things (IoT) and intelligent algorithms have demonstrated the growing significance, potential utility, and the unique advantages that can be bought to intelligent healthcare and rehabilitation systems. This special issue (SI) aims to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss various research and development achievements in the field of multi-sensor based intelligent IoT systems for intelligent healthcare and rehabilitation applications.

2. Special Issue on ‘Pervasive Intelligence: State-of-the-Art, Challenges and Perspectives’

With the purpose of providing services for users at any-time, any-where and by any-means, pervasive computing, by seamlessly integrating the smart devices such as smart phones, cameras and smart sensors, has been witnessed significant progress. Meanwhile, considering the recent advances on technologies including artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing, edge computing and 5G wireless communication, pervasive intelligence, also referred as Cyber-Physical-Social Systems (CPSS), is considered as the next stage of development of pervasive computing. With the ultimate purpose of providing the services at right-time, right-where and by right-means, pervasive intelligence also brings about new challenges, such as costs, deep learning, computing, communications and privacy issues.
   This special issue is devoted to the most recent developments and research outcomes addressing the related theoretical and practical aspects on the state-of-the-art, challenges and perspectives of pervasive intelligence.

9. Special Issue on ‘Intelligence-driven Mobile Networks for Smart Cities’

Over the past decades, the technologies of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have undergone a series of evolutionary innovation where these technologies have been promoting the quality of human life significantly. Learning the patterns and creating actions from the proper data could provide better and right decisions for many applications. This special issue is designed to foster the application and innovation of AI and ML technologies for mobile networking within 5G, MANETs, VANETs, wireless sensor networks and as well as other forms of networks. This is to explore a way of seamless and intelligence-driven communications for enabling evolution of the current networks and beyond, and thus, to support the sustainable smart cities.

10. Special Issue on ‘Content-driven and Cache-aware networking in Smart Cities’

To solve the above challenges, reasonable content caching is a promising solution. Benefit from the paradigm of Content-Centric Networking (ICN) and big data analysis, contents are effectively distributed to each caching module. Meanwhile, edge computing can also provide an inspiring technology for the content caching in smart cities, which can make traffic congestion be alleviated. Moreover, Artificial Intelligence (AI) enables the caching machine and device to choose the content that will be requested frequently in the near future, and select the right time to sleep, thus to reduce their energy consumption. Besides, to make the content caching network in smart cities more secure, the blockchain is one of the best ways to be leveraged. The aim of this special issue is to provide a forum for recent research results on the topics relevant to the current challenges of cache policies and content-driven schemes in smart cities. We solicit high-quality original research works on various aspects of content-driven and cache-aware networking in smart cities.
