CFP: Remote Sensing - Special Issue "Artificial Intelligence for Environment and Cultural Heritage"

*******Apologies for cross-posting*******

Dear Colleagues,
Nowadays, Artificial Intelligence is a set of theories, methodologies and technologies which represents the key discipline for advanced application in different fields. Different cultural areas related to computer science, territorial planning and environmental research need to explore possible interactions based on artificial intelligence technologies. With this aim, AI represents the key factor for enabling the design of novel approaches, smart technologies and tools. The main purpose of this special issue is to publish original research on theoretical issues, innovative methods and applications based on artificial intelligence, big data and deep learning applied to different aspects of the knowledge management about environment and cultural heritage.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Artificial intelligence
- Digital cultural heritage
- Environmental safeguard and protection
- Big-data
- Deep learning
- Remote sensing
