Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The most recent advances in  Applied Artificial Intelligence, Smart Computation, IoT, Nano-Biotechnology, Mechatronics, etc., contribute to creating a future of Ultra-Smart Cyberspace. There are many challenges in developing and implementing a new generation of smart cyberspace that will be secure and reliable. Given the ubiquity and 24/7 access to the Internet by anyone from anywhere, the smart cyberspace is becoming more complex and well adopted in businesses, industries, governments and society worldwide. The Third Millennium Smart Cyberspace utilizes Applied Artificial Intelligence with a large number of IoT devices that are essential to Cyber Critical Infrastructures and e-Services such as e-Health, e-Government, e-Military, e-Commerce, etc. Given the complexity and dynamic increase in cyber-attacks on Cyber Critical Infrastructures and e-Services, it is critical to secure the data integrity, privacy, availability, accountability and data ownership. The Special Issue will present a collection of selected peer-reviewed papers bringing to light the cutting edge research ideas to innovate, develop and implement the next generation of cyberspace and IoT devices that will be secure and reliable 24/7.
