Artificial Intelligence for COVID-19

To be published in the series: Studies in Systems, Decision and Control (SSDC) by Springer


Currently, the entire world is suffering from a global epidemic of COVID-19 that has infected thousands of people in almost all countries. The new Coronavirus (COVID-19) put humans of all nations in front of this huge danger. The major signs of COVID-19 are declared so that any individual can discover whether or not he has such symptoms. To safeguard against disease, various centers of virus disinfection recommend many precautions, among them to stay at home except in cases of necessity.

It is very important that this worldwide focus draw the attention of scientists and researchers in the field of Artificial Intelligence to the effective contribution in the optimal utilization of available resources and optimal decision-making to help in facing the emerging Coronavirus disaster.

Artificial intelligence (AI), defined as intelligence offered by machines where programs are progressing to perform specific missions. AI is a flourishing research field that is one of the driving forces of today’s activities and as such is having increasing impact on society, it has many applications in today’s society for a wide range of applications to create an even more exciting universe. AI and Optimization techniques have been used to develop and improve numerous fields including healthcare which is extremely important especially in light of the invasion of the current Corona pandemic.

To this end, we solicit high-quality original submissions to this special issue that reflect the unprecedented momentum garnered by this research area.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Artificial Intelligence based solutions for COVID-19
  • Machine learning for COVID-19,
  • Fuzzy systems and rough set theory for COVID-19,
  • Recommender Systems for COVID-19,
  • Image analysis and processing for COVID-19,
  • Data science policies for COVID-19
  • Data processing for COVID-19,
  • Data Mining for COVID-19
