Advances in Architectures, Big Data, and Machine Learning Techniques for Complex Internet of Things Systems

Call for Papers

The Internet of Things (IoT) has made it possible for devices around the world to acquire information and store it, to be able to use it at a later stage. However, there are important limitations for a large-scale achievement in this revolution. Furthermore, IoT allows developing big data architectures based on services. IoT technologies are available and every day there are new ones that arrive. Some of them are sensors, RFID, GPS, and many other types of smart devices.

However, this potential opportunity is often not exploited. There are some reasons like the excessively big interval between the data collection and the capability to process and analyze it. Another reason is the need of new models of design for suitable big data architecture. To effectively synthesize big data and communicate among devices using IoT, machine learning techniques are employed. Machine learning extracts meaning from big data using various techniques which include regression analysis, clustering, Bayesian methods, decision trees and random forests, support vector machines, reinforcement learning, ensemble learning, and deep learning. Currently, the quantitative data description of complex huge systems is no longer exclusively experimental sample data but the full overview data for the entire state. In this scenario, data analysis should endorse complex scientific intelligent analysis method for modeling and simulating. It has also to utilize and constantly optimize big data for machine learning and analyze and study the self-organizing and evolving rules of complex systems.

The purpose of this special issue is to publish high-quality research papers as well as review articles addressing recent advances in modeling, formal methods, and complexity handling of architectures, big data, and machine learning techniques for complex Internet of Things systems. Theoretical studies and state-of-the-art practical applications are welcome for submission.
