Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The infusion of intelligence in computing with maximum success is a challenge. Massive amounts of multidimensional data reflecting the trajectories of objects are produced by a developing diverse, real-life systems, ranging from mobile to different apps and surveillance systems, from object tracking systems to sensors. Intelligent computing can be used to develop newer algorithms, designs and models that can solve more complicated tasks in dynamic environments. The frenzied emergence of new systems and the surrounding potential have generated excitement about the possibility of intelligent computing to transform research to solve the confronting issues. Real-time intelligent computing has significantly impacted human beings in many respects. A breakthrough in computational intelligence is warranted to progress further in achieving the peak. Solving complexity in real-time intelligence is a way to move forward with an interdisciplinary approach. Recent research in deep learning, machine learning and cloud help achieve multilevel tasks in more dynamic environments. This Special Issue will reflect the new challenges and solutions to attain real-time intelligence and its applications in different domains.

Violent attacks have been one of the hot issues in recent years. In the presence of closed-circuit televisions (CCTVs) in smart cities, there is an emerging challenge in apprehending criminals, leading to a need for innovative solutions. In this paper, the propose a model aimed at enhancing real-time emergency response capabilities and swiftly identifying criminals. This initiative aims to foster a safer environment and better manage criminal activity within smart cities. The proposed architecture combines an image-to-image stable diffusion model with violence detection and pose estimation approaches. The diffusion model generates synthetic data while the object detection approach uses YOLO v7 to identify violent objects like baseball bats, knives, and pistols, complemented by MediaPipe for action detection. Further, a long short-term memory (LSTM) network classifies the action attacks involving violent objects. Subsequently, an ensemble consisting of an edge device and the entire proposed model is deployed onto the edge device for real-time data testing using a dash camera. Thus, this study can handle violent attacks and send alerts in emergencies. As a result, our proposed YOLO model achieves a mean average precision (MAP) of 89.5% for violent attack detection, and the LSTM classifier model achieves an accuracy of 88.33% for violent action classification. The results highlight the model’s enhanced capability to accurately detect violent objects, particularly in effectively identifying violence through the implemented artificial intelligence system.
