Submissions Due: 31 August 2021

Submission deadline: 31 August 2021
Publication: April 2022

Artificial intelligence (AI) impacts the daily lives of people around the globe. A prominent example today is the pharmaceutical industry’s use of AI algorithms to aid in the development of a vaccine for the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19). AI also affects our daily lives in more subtle, hidden ways. For instance, AI is used in an increasing number of consumer electronics applications, from children’s toys to Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled household appliances to embedded systems within automobiles for automating driving tasks.

The advancement of AI has accelerated in large part due to the demand for an ever-increasing array of applications providing some level of automated decision-making and human-machine partnering. At the same time, engineers face the challenges of successfully conducting end-to-end system-level development and deployment of AI. For this special issue, we are soliciting articles that address lessons learned and best practices for conducting end-to-end system-level development and deployment of AI. The submissions should tell a story of end-to-end development and deployment in the context of a particular application.

Topics of interest for this special issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Development and deployment of AI in embedded systems, the IoT, and the cloud
  • Engineering considerations such as dependability, trustworthiness, explainability, scalability, complexity, ethics, time-to-market, and other factors that influence successful development and deployment of AI-based systems
  • Tools, techniques, infrastructure, and processes that support end-to-end development and deployment of AI-based systems
