Aim and Scope

Due to rapid growth and advancement of cloud technology, responsive systems are used therewith generating a huge volume of data in a variety of formats, especially multimedia data. Recently, the development of multimedia technology has played a significant role in exchanging, sharing of data and information at a larger extent in the global IT industry field. Consequently, the fast development of Internet technologies has raised the need for in-depth convergence of machine learning paradigms in energy-aware management of computing resources and cloud-based multimedia sharing platform for Global IT systems to efficiently control and reduce ecological and societal impacts. Moreover, significance of machine learning approaches in multimedia cloud network system for global IT systems would be feasible and sound. The aim of this special issue is to integrate machine learning paradigms, advanced data analytics, and optimization opportunities to bring more awareness on applicability and usefulness of distributed multimedia services in Global IT systems. Further, it is imperative to note that machine learning paradigms and its intelligence techniques has not been adequately investigated from the perspective of multimedia cloud based service management framework and its related research issues. Furthermore, in this context, there are many intertwined noteworthy issues (QoS-aware service composition, spatial computing, biologically inspired learning and adaption in self-configuration of network services surveillance system, etc) that need to be addressed in the context of multimedia cloud networking system in convergence with machine learning in global IT systems. Obviously, these challenges also create immense opportunities for researchers.

Hence, primary aim of this special issue is to disseminate the application of machine learning approaches/models and its related branches such as evolutionary computation, neural networks, artificial immune systems, swarm intelligence, and so on in multimedia cloud systems for global IT systems. We cordially invite investigators to contribute their original research articles, with an emphasis on real-life applications, as well as review articles that will stimulate further activities in this area and improve our understanding of the key scientific problems.
