Special Issue on Agents for Social Media
Submission Date: 2017-02-13

Social media is changing the way we access information, share experiences, and in general, interact with others. Recent statistics show that approximately 20 percent of time spent on the Web involves social media. While some of this time is well spent (enjoying all its benefits), some of the time is spent trying to overcome the challenges that social media has introduced, such as identifying credible information, searching for relevant content, ensuring that privacy constraints are met, and overcoming security breaches. A currently popular form of social media, microblogging, enables individuals to share small pieces of information with many others whom they might barely know. These individuals often have minimal credentials - sometimes not even a full name. It isn't clear whether they created their own credentials and, if not, what the origin of those credentials might be. Without knowing this, it's difficult to judge the credibility of information that microbloggers provide. Currently, users deal with this by searching through other media to check whether the content is actually true or try to identify ways to cross-check the information with other users. It would be tremendously important if agents could help identify trustworthy users in the system, as well as provide ways to reason about the information's provenance. Even when the information's credibility is guaranteed, there's too much information to be processed manually. Ideally, it would be helpful to have agents that can mine social media, differentiate between important and unimportant information, and communicate their results clearly. A side effect of sharing information over social media is that users' privacy is violated easily, either because shared content reaches an unintended audience or other users share content about individuals without the individual's consent. Managing an individual's privacy in social media would be eased if personal agents could help maintain requirements, verify whether the system abides with the requirements, and cooperate with other agents as needed to ensure that the requirements are met. While most current social media is intended for sharing content, future social media applications could offer models for other forms of interactions, including business and government. Such models could make use of agents that form teams, partnerships, and communities, foster communications, and collaborate to formulate policies and reach decisions. To realize these new forms, underlying computational challenges would need to be addressed. This special issue will address the questions, challenges, and opportunities that arise at the intersection of agents and social media. These contributions can include theoretical and applied research related to the modeling, design, and development of agents and multiagent systems for social media.

Special Issue on IoT-Enhanced Human Experience
Submission Date: 2017-04-10

Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled applications now support the needs and interests of individuals, enterprises, and society. They impact our lives, change businesses, and enhance the human experience. As this technology advances, this special issue seeks articles on applications that are deployed and preferably tested and evaluated in real-world situations, where IoT data is an indispensable component. Apart from physical devices (sensors/IoTs), such applications might also involve citizen sensing (for example, human-supplied observations or data using a mobile app), social data, and interactions with humans; the applications might also seek or use human guidance. Especially welcome are applications that involve a large number or variety of IoTs and/or Big Data (with one or more corresponding challenges in volume, variety, velocity, or veracity). In this area of research, the collected data must be analyzed for insights, which will inform or drive actions affecting human activities (and hence, human experience). Therefore, any employed AI techniques must be human-aware. For example, both the raw data and processed insights must be secured and made traceable to gain humans' trust. For any insights generated from machine learning, the techniques might be called upon to explain the output. Usage and acceptance of insights by humans will drive future waves of IoT devices and consumption of their contextual data. We envisage that illustrative applications involving IoT and other data could serve or impact any variety of issues that impact human activities and experience, including but not limited to the following: - individual and community needs - such as personal and public health, entertainment, and improving the quality of life; - enterprise needs - including logistics, procurement, customer engagement/experience, human resources, and connected manufacturing; - smart, connected city and government (societal and environment-related) needs - such as energy, transport, water, and citizen empowerment and engagement; and - human, social, and economic development needs - including crisis response and coordination, as well as improving standards of living, community use, and natural resources.
