Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Multimedia, computer vision, graphics, and machine learning have become ubiquitous in modern information systems, creating new challenges for detection, recognition, indexing, access, search retrieval, automated understanding, and processing, resulting in many applications based on image and signal processing, machine learning, and various multimedia technologies.

Recent advances in pervasive computers, networks, telecommunications, and information technology, along with the proliferation of multimedia mobile devices, have stimulated the rapid development of intelligent applications. These key technologies, using virtual reality, augmented reality, and computational intelligence, are gradually creating a multimedia revolution that will significantly impact a broad spectrum of consumer, business, healthcare, educational, and governmental domains. Advancements in artificial intelligence has resulted in the rapid growth of both machine learning methods and applications in computer vision, image processing, and analysis. The development of parallel computing capabilities in the first decade of the 21st century, which boosted the development of deep neural networks, became a real game-changer in machine vision. This Special Issue covers a range of AI-based theories, methods, algorithms, technologies, and systems for diversified and heterogeneous digital multimedia, imaging, computer graphics, and machine learning areas.

This Special Issue will provide an opportunity for researchers and professionals to discuss the present and future challenges associated with this topic and foster potential collaboration for future progress in these fields. We welcome submissions of original papers concerning all aspects of multimedia, vision, and graphics, ranging from concepts and theoretical developments to advanced technologies and innovative applications. The acceptance and publication of papers will be based on their relevance to the below topics, their clarity of presentation, their originality, and the accuracy of the reported results and proposed solutions.
