The International Journal on the Development and Application of Standards for Computers, Software Quality, Data Communications, Interfaces and Measurement

The quality of software, well-defined interfaces (hardware and software), the process of digitalisation, and accepted standards in these fields are essential for building and exploiting complex computing, communication, multimedia and measuring systems. Standards can simplify the design and construction of individual hardware and software components and help to ensure satisfactory interworking.

Computer Standards & Interfaces is an international journal dealing specifically with these topics.

The journal
• Provides information about activities and progress on the definition of computer standards, software quality, interfaces and methods, at national, European and international levels
• Publishes critical comments on standards and standards activities
• Disseminates user's experiences and case studies in the application and exploitation of established or emerging standards, interfaces and methods
• Offers a forum for discussion on actual projects, standards, interfaces and methods by recognised experts
• Stimulates relevant research by providing a specialised refereed medium.

Computer Standards & Interfaces is concerned with the specification, development and application of standards and with high-level publications of developments and methods in the following areas:
• Standards, Information Management, Formal Methods - Computers, Processors, Storage, Operating systems, Languages, Databases, Graphics, User interface, Multimedia, Information security, Office automation, Development of standards and instruments, Applications

Special Issue on Applications of Generative AI
Submission Date: 2024-08-01

With the advancement of AI-powered language models, such as ChatGPT, generative AI (AIGC, a.k.a AI-generated content) are being discussed and used in every aspect of human society. Generative AI has strong ability to analyze and create text, images, code, and beyond (Zhang et al., 2023). In addition to the fundamental techniques behind AIGC and the popular tasks of AIGC, it is also being widely applied to different fields and domains, including question answering, marketing, healthcare, gaming, music, drug discovery, etc. Researchers and scientists have also started discussing the general design principles for generative AI applications (Weisz et al., 2023). Recently, a comprehensive survey summarized more than 350 unimodal generative AI applications, such as text, images, video, gaming, and brain information (Gozalo-Brizuela & Garrido-Merchán, 2023). Other research pointed out the challenges and the importance of human-role in generative AI applications (Fui-Hoon Nah, 2023). However, it is undeniable that the generative AI revolution is still in the early stage, and it has the ability to change and improve with the potential for even greater future capability. Therefore, it is a critical time to promote the applications of Generative AI with this special issue.
