Special Issue on Emerging Technologies and Applications of Artificial Intelligence

Aim & Scope
As the extensively growing of rich and amazing applications with artificial intelligence in our daily life, research in artificial intelligence has been deeply and wildly developed and promoted. The leading-edge definition of artificial intelligence research is changing over time and is redefined whenever researchers have reached a new impact milestone of impressed applications. In these years, the top AI headline was IBMˇ¦s Watson, a question answering system which bested two top human champions on the TV game show Jeopardy! Watson is indeed a stunning achievement, proving that state-of-the-art AI techniques can handle complex natural language with surprising ease, yet it represents just one subfield of the diversely branched world of AI research. Moreover, the Kinect which provides a 3D bodyˇVmotion interface for the multimedia application uses algorithms that emerged from lengthy AI research. The voice agent in the mobile phone, Siri, is also an impressed and useful application with complicated artificial intelligence. Major players in the mobile communication industry are integrating speech recognition and machine vision into more devices and applications. Advances continue in all subfields of AI and are increasingly finding application in our day to day life. In the subfield of data mining, AI is now being used to mine and analyze ever growing online social networks, generating insights into social relationships, behavior, and emerging trends. And the list goes on. This special issue aims to provide an international forum for exchange of ideas related to AI theory, application, and resources. The major topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

    Submission Guidelines
    This special issue will primarily invite papers presented at the 2012 Technologies and Applications of Artificial Intelligence (TAAI), an international conference to be held 16-18 November 2012, in Tainan, Taiwan. The invited paper will submit a revised version with at least 40% difference from the conference paper. Nevertheless the special issue is also open to submission of papers from other authors.
    In addition to inviting high quality papers, we will recruit highly qualified reviewers to provide high quality reviews and feedback comments as well. Electronic paper submissions are sent to taai2012@gmail.com. A template of submitted paper can be found at http://www.iis.sinica.edu.tw/page/jise/FILE/standard-new.doc.

    Papers will be evaluated on their merits, relevance and contribution to Artificial Intelligence field, suitability to the special issue, and overall quality. All papers will be rigorously referred by 3 reviewers. Submission of a manuscript to this special issue implies that no similar paper is already accepted or will be submitted to any other conference or journal.
