Special Issue Information

Recent advance in artificial intelligence (AI), particularly machine learning (ML), has considerably accelerated the development of smart city applications. At the same time, smart infrastructure, a critical element of smart cities, is integrated with wireless sensor networks and the Internet of Things (IoT) that automatically gather, evaluate, and transmit structural data, also known as "smart monitoring". AI algorithms enable the processing of huge amounts of information and the identification of patterns and characteristics that would remain undetected using conventional methods. Therefore, this Special Issue (SI) is dedicated to the smart cities’ infrastructure-based sensor networks and/or IoT, data collection, and Big Data (BD)  analysis using AI techniques. The topics include but not limited to: 
-       Cloudlet-based approaches for smart city engineering
-       Communication networks for smart cities
-       Smart city big data analytics
-       Smart cities applications in smart buildings, home automation, and smart energy grids
-       Smart city transportation and healthcare management
-       IoT-based smart cities
-       Security and privacy of advanced networks
-       Internet of drones for smart cities
-       Smart city mobile applications
-       Analytics for smart cities
-       Fog and edge computing-based approaches for smart city engineering
