Call for Paper - SI on Recent Advances in AIoT & 6G Communication Networks for Smart Cities

Special Issue on Recent Advances in AIoT & 6G Communication Networks for Smart Cities

Aims and Scopes

The emergence of the next generation 6G communication network with artificial intelligence (AI) is a novel concept that promises to revolutionize decision-making processes. Human-centric applications based on AIoT tools and techniques can enhance the standard of living and improve a country's economy. Collecting data from internet of things (IoT)-based sensors presents various opportunities, and many researchers have identified vulnerabilities in traditional techniques in recent decades. Consequently, AI algorithms have become a trending topic for optimal decision-making. The merger of AIoT & 6G communication networks will advance channels in smart cities.

However, the recent misuse of AI models has raised concerns about public safety. To address these concerns, the novel concept of safe-AI has been introduced, which utilizes the 6G network to improve and secure communication channels. AI and machine learning (ML) will advance communication technologies, and AI/ML techniques will make use of 6G networks to improve the quality of experience (QoE) metrics. Integrating AI-IoT with 6G will facilitate human-centric applications. A self-learning 6G communication network using AI tools will train entire systems, and various processes will be automated using supervised, unsupervised, and reinforcement learning.

In the near future, self-evolving systems will be designed using AIoT. AI-enabled 6G networks will provide many opportunities for researchers, engineers, practitioners, and scientists. This special issue aims to provide information about recent advances in safe-AI for 6G communication network applications.
