Intelligent systems are improving our ordinary life through the means of cyberphysical systems, a classical system where physical resources influence computer resources and vice versa, or pure cyber systems, such as cloud computing systems, which consist in computers that process data in remote data centers reachable by mobile devices on the Internet. Both types of systems, cyberphysical and cyber, can make use of artificial intelligence to improve the system outcome. Achieving physical feats such as self-driving cars or cyber-based social impacts such as real-time text translation of pictures in multiple languages are outcomes that would otherwise not be possible if using traditional algorithms.
Although new intelligent algorithms are being developed, there are still some challenges that must be tackled to have a successful working system. Cybersecurity relates to the properties (consider, for example confidentiality, integrity and availability, among others) of the system to maintain its correct working behavior, despite the presence of unexpected events that would otherwise trigger the system into executing unwanted operations. Within this, availability relates to the capability of the system to maintaining the same level of service, without losing the ability to provide proper feedback in useful time, in the face of unexpected events.
This Special Issue welcomes contributions on the challenges to provide an intelligent, secure, and reliable systems, including the following list of topics:
- Cybersecurity challenges in cyberphysical systems;
- Artificial intelligence algorithms for improving CPS cybersecurity;
- Industrial CPS applications for cybersecurity;
- Challenges of AI and security in cyberphysical production systems;
- Availability of critical cyberphysical systems;
- AI for new applications in health systems;
- Intelligent Systems for medical diagnostics;
- Privacy and security on AI algorithms;
- Intelligent systems for data privacy.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Systems is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
