IEEE Intelligent Systems: Special Issue on Learning Complex Couplings and Interactions

IEEE Intelligent Systems seeks submissions by 30 March 2020.

The world is becoming increasingly complex with a major drive to incorporate increasingly intricate coupling relationships and interactions between entities, behaviors, subsystems, and systems and their dynamics and evolution of any kinds and in any domains. Effective modeling in complex couplings and interactions in complex data, behaviors, and systems directly addresses the core nature and challenges of complex problems and is critical for building next-generation intelligent theories and systems to improve machine intelligence and understand real-life complex systems. This Special Issue on learning complex couplings and interactions will collect and report the latest advancements in artificial intelligence and data science theories, models, and applications of modeling complex couplings and interactions in big data, complex behaviors, and complex systems.

Scope of Interest:
This special issue will solicit the recent theoretical and practical advancements in learning complex couplings and interactions in areas relevant but not limited to the following:

  • Explainable learning of complex couplings and interactions
  • Representation learning of complex couplings and interactions
  • Coupling learning of complex relations, interactions and networks and their dynamics
  • Interaction learning of activities, behaviors, events, processes and their sequences, networks, and dynamics
  • Learning couplings and interactions in hybrid intelligent systems and problems
  • Learning natural, online, social, economic, cultural and political couplings and interactions
  • Learning real-time, dynamic, high-dimensional, heterogeneous, large-scale and sparse couplings, dependencies and interactions
  • Probabilistic and stochastic modelling of coupling and interaction uncertainty and dependency
  • Deep learning of complex couplings and interactions in big data and complex behaviors
