With the advent of novel applications like autonomous driving vehicles, recommender systems, chatbots, Question & Answering systems which are empowered by the recent advancements in statistical machine learning & inference, probabilistic graphical modeling, high performance computing and data analytics, there is a justified need to research on the techniques and methods underlying these emerging domains.Further, the techniques involved are interdisciplinary in nature, thus necessitating the creation of a forum to exchange state-of-the-art research methodologies across these domains to empower the focused research groups.
The data processed in the applications cited above are multi-modal and stream-based in nature. Further, multiplescans of the data set are typically required to construct formal non-linear models that impart intelligence to these applications thus mimicking a human expert’s decisions. The computing techniques adopted in building models must be tractable and intelligent to cater to the functional and non-functional requirements of theapplication being realized.
Such computing techniques are a culmination of the state-of-the-art research methods evolved in allied interdisciplinary domains like model learning, parallel processing, real-time data analytics, statistical verification and validation of the assumptions underlying the model. This Journal can be a forum to exchange best practices followed to solve open complex engineering problems faced while building intelligent applications. This forum can enable the formation of focused research cliques to facilitate effective sharing of ideas and subsequently can facilitate collaborative interdisciplinary research to address societal problems.
Typically, such intelligent models are built using iterative techniques that learns the latent parameters of the model based on a training dataset. The quality of the model and its predictive accuracy are dependent on the quality and bias of the training data.The training datasets are generally voluminous and does not fit into the main memory of a single workstation computer. Hence, to execute training algorithms the training data is sharded across distributed computing workstations and a distributed learning strategy is followed. Several challenges and architectural issues arise while distributing the computations to learn a model. Such a distribution must leverage the underlying parallel processing facilities at the hardware level and should facilitate efficient data locality optimization.
With the introduction of new architectural features at the hardware level and new distributed programming frameworks like Map Reduce there is an imminent need to port the sequential intelligent model building algorithms to their distributed counterparts. Hence the discipline of building intelligent systems and intelligent computing techniques is a confluence of multiple disciplines which requires a forum to facilitate the best minds working in niche sub-domains to share and critically evaluate one another’s ideas with an eye to adapt these ideas to further each other’s research work.
A decade back there was a restriction imposed on the perplexity and the degree of non-linearity of a model which can be built. However, with the advent of Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) and Multi-core architectures, this limitation no longer holds and deep-learning models and Long-Short-Term-Memory Models are gaining traction to solve complex problems in Natural Language, Speech and image processing domains.
The above-mentioned sub-domains like model building, distributed intelligent algorithms, Parallelization of sequential intelligent algorithms, applications of intelligent algorithms to problems in Vision, Language and Speech are within the scope of this journal.
Practice papers and position papers:
Review papers on the contemporary models, tools, APIs and AI frameworks to disseminate the state-of-the-art practices adopted in building intelligent systems are welcome. The journal also solicits position papers which are proof-of-concepts or promising ideas that are yet to be implemented. The journal also welcomes research posters which are short contributions in niche sub-domains which typically cannot be considered as full research papers.
