Call for Articles for: Encyclopedia of Artificial Intelligence

Via Neurodudes

From the call for articles 


Editors:  Juan R. Rabuñal, Julián Dorado & Alejandro Pazos


Nature has always been a source of inspiration for science problem solving. Areas such as Pharmacy, Physics or Aeronautics use biological concepts to reach beyond their current limits.

As far as Computing Science and - more specifically, Artificial Intelligence (AI) - is concerned, the use of biological concepts is highly reliable for achieving good results. At the early stages of AI (1950s), Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) - quite successful as classification and pattern recognition systems - were developed by using the structure of the nervous system as a basis. After these systems, biology has inspired the development of other techniques - among which the evolutionary systems are the most promising ones when dealing with new problems that use a vast amount of data - such as Biomedical Computing or weather forecasting.

Both the techniques based in cell or natural organisms performance, as well as those based on evolutionary theories, have a wide success record when applied to real problems. These types of techniques currently represent a very active area of research, as not only a high number of companies use them, but also many related high level scientific congresses are being held annually on these techniques.

To meet this need, currently we are in the process of editing the "Encyclopedia of Artificial Intelligence " that will provide comprehensive coverage and definitions of the most important issues, concepts, trends and technologies in Artificial Intelligence. This important new publication will be distributed worldwide among academic and professional institutions and will be instrumental in providing researchers, scholars, students and professionals with access to the latest knowledge related to Artificial Intelligence techniques.

To ensure that this publication has the most current and relevant coverage of all topics related to Artificial Intelligence, we are asking sholars well-known for their particular area of research, to contribute short articles of 1,500-3,500 words on any of the following topics.
