Regular Theme of AIMS 2018: Mobile and AI applications

AI has revolutionized the computing paradigm in multiple domains, such as economics, finance, e-commence, etc. AI provide the abilities to link cyberspace and physical space, and social space. AI as a service will greatly reshape current technologies. Also wireless and ubiquitous connectivity have enabled mobile computing and Internet access on the go as a life-enhancing and indispensable experience of modern life. More than 50 billion devices, in more than 200 device types, will likely be connected to the Internet by 2020 as integral components of a new generation of high-value application services for consumers and enterprises. API-defined mobile services have become essential ubiquitous services consumption and delivery enablers for many industries and government organizations worldwide.

The 2018 International Conference on AI & Mobile Services (AIMS) aims at providing an international forum that is dedicated to exploring different aspects of AI( from technologies to approaches and algorithms) and mobile services (from business management to computing systems, algorithms, and applications) and to promoting technological innovations in research and development of AI and mobile services, including, but not limited to, wireless & sensor networks, mobile & wearable computing, mobile enterprise & eCommerce, ubiquitous collaborative & social services, machine-to-machine & Internet-of-things clouds, cyber-physical integration, big data analytics for mobility-enabled services, and AI & machine learning theory, algorithms & applications.
