Special Issue on: "Artificial Intelligence Facilities Smart Cities Development"

Guest Editor:
Dr. Wei Fang and Prof. Xiaojun Wu, Jiangnan University, China

During urbanisation, several challenges have been raised and should be addressed, such as population explosion, rising levels of pollution, exponential growth of data, high cost of living, etc. It seriously affects the sustainable development of the economic society. To construct the smart city is a possible way to face these challenges and can improve the quality of citizens’ life and the economic growth as well. New-generation technologies have been used extensively in smart city, such as cloud computing, Internet of Things, big data, artificial intelligence, computational intelligence, etc. This special issue will focus on the new-generation technologies for smart cities development.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at The Third IEEE International Smart Cities Conference (ISC2 2017), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
