Special Issues
Special Issue on Cognitive-inspired Information Processing and Applications
Submission Date: 2021-06-30

Aim and Scope: Cognition is emerging as a new and promising methodology with the development of cognitive-inspired computing, cognitive-inspired interaction and systems, which has the potential to enable a large class of applications and has emerged with a great potential to change our life. However, recent advances on artificial intelligence (AI), fog computing, big data, and cognitive computational theory show that multidisciplinary cognitive-inspired computing still struggle with fundamental, long-standing problems, such as computational models and decision-making mechanisms based on the neurobiological processes of the brain, cognitive sciences, and psychology. How to enhance human cognitive performance with machine learning, common sense, natural language processing etc. are worth exploring. The list of possible topics includes, but is not limited to: The objective of this special issue is to bring together state-of-the-art research contributions that address these key aspects of cognitive-inspired computing and applications. Original papers describing completed and unpublished work not currently under review by any other journal/magazine/conference are solicited. Specific topics include, but not limited to, the following: Cognitive-inspired computing fundamentals Cognitive-inspired computing systems Cognitive-inspired computing with big data Cognitive-inspired intelligent interaction AI-assisted cognitive computing approaches Brain analysis for cognitive-inspired computing Internet of cognitive Things Cognitive environment, sensing and data Cognitive robots and agents Security issue in cognitive-inspired computing Test-bed, prototype implementation and applications Submission Instructions: Prospective authors should submit original manuscripts that have not appeared, nor are under consideration, in any other journal. Prospective authors are required to follow the Author’s Guide for manuscript submission to Information Processing & Management. To ensure that all manuscripts are correctly identified for inclusion in the special issue, it is important that authors select “VSI: CIPA” when they reach the “Article Type Selection / Issue selection” step in the submission process.

Special Issue on Leveraging Text and Social Analytics for Business Intelligence
Submission Date: 2021-07-30

In the current era of the modern computing world, innovations in business intelligence are most crucial to remain competitive and successful across the growing business trends. Consequently, businesses of all sizes (small and medium scale enterprises) have started investing in the next level of data analytics and business intelligence solutions. The efficient use of business intelligence methodologies extracts analyzes, and visualizes key performance indicators from the huge volume of enterprise big data. It reduces the cost and increases the speed of decision making with actionable intelligence. However, it is most critical for business organizations to make timely decisions due to numerous challenges. Some of the considerable concerns include ensuring data quality, absence of execution and training measures, unifying business intelligence among all user groups, targeting bigger needs with less human and computational resources, complex systems and software, huge infrastructure investment, and inability to deal with unstructured business data sources. Subsequently, these common business intelligence problems may sometimes make the business organization disgusted and may lose the value of their business. Though the use of business intelligence can be quite challenging initially, its potential benefits make it worth the investment. Text analytics and social analytics are the two significant trends that greatly harness the power of business intelligence with improved business results and demonstrated business values. Text analytics enhances the business intelligence tools to identify patterns, trends, and actionable insights from the text to produce data-driven decisions for business applications. It leverages opportunities for business improvement and enables business services to adapt to client needs and expectations. Similarly, social analytics deals with collecting and interpreting statistical, digital data on how the users interact with an organization, specifically using online platforms. To the point, text and social analytics are the two primary forms of business intelligence that enable business organizations to forecast and respond to changing customer behaviors. It makes qualitative use of the business data and produces valuable outcomes through various techniques such as sentiment analysis, natural language processing, social network analytics, predictive modeling, and recommendation systems. Further, it is more determined that the appropriate use of social and text analytics can significantly empower business intelligence by actively solving its underlying challenges. This special issue is intended to explore high-quality research articles on recent advances in text and social analytics for business intelligence applications. Possible topics of interest include, but are not limited to: - Recent advances in text and social analytics for business intelligence - Data fusion using text analytics for business intelligence - Conceptual designs and architectures of text and social analytics for business intelligence applications - Dimensional modelling with text analytics for business applications - Trends in social analytics for user behavior analysis and prediction - Influence of natural language processing in business decision making - Challenges in text and social analytics for business analytics with proactive solutions - Advances in text and social analytics to deal with structured and unstructured business data - Effective strategies of social analytics for social media marketing and innovations - Text and social analytics applications for E-commerce applications - Advanced computational analysis paradigms using text and social analytics for business intelligence
