       Web Intelligence = Artificial Intelligence in the Connected World
            Special Issue on WWorld Wide Web Journal, Springer

           RL: https://www.springer.com/journal/11280/updates/17869608

World Wide Web has evolved as an omnipresent system which highly impacts science, education, industry and everyday life. World Wide Web is now a vast data production and consumption platform at which threads of data evolve from multiple devices, by different human interactions, over worldwide locations under divergent distributed settings. Such a dynamic complex system demands adaptive intelligent solutions, which will advance knowledge, human interactions and innovation. Web intelligence is now a cutting-edge area which must address all open issues towards deepening the understanding of all Web¡¯s entities, phenomena, and developments.

Web Intelligence (WI) aims to achieve a multi-disciplinary balance between research advances in theories and methods usually associated with collective intelligence, data science, human-centric computing, knowledge management, network science, autonomous agents and multi-agent systems. It is committed to addressing research that both deepen the understanding of computational, logical, cognitive, physical, and social foundations of the future Web, and enable the development and application of intelligent technologies.

¡°Web Intelligence = AI in the Connected World¡± will provide a broad forum that academia, professionals and industry people can exchange their ideas, findings and strategies in utilizing the power of human brains and man-made networks to create a better world. Specifically, the fields of how intelligence is impacting the Web of People, the Web of Data, the Web of Things, the Web of Trust, the Web of Agents, and emerging Web in health and smart living in the 5G Era.

The Special Issue will discuss theories and methodologies from both disciplines of Artificial Intelligence and Web Intelligence with a focus on the evolution of World Wide Web. The discussions will encompass the theoretical basis and related tools to formally represent, measure, model, and mine meaningful patterns from large-scale online datasets. Key objectives of the Special Issue are:
    * to discuss on challenging issues in Web Intelligence at the intersection of Artificial Intelligence and World Wide Web and seek the related breakthrough for new revolutions and breakthroughs in related fields;
    * to explore an innovative route to innovatively merge technologies in related fields and make online big data more productive and intelligent to enterprises;
    * to discuss on potential research projects in Web Intelligence and explore possible future research and development directions in technologies, methodology, and applications;
    * to provide a forum for researchers to discuss their recent work on the topics related to Web Intelligence to facilitate research collaboration in related areas.

Much effort will be devoted to bringing together in one place researchers cross various research and application domains from different countries and regions, and to stimulating a vivid discussion and exchange of ideas.
