Special Issue on Machine Learning-Driven Big Data and Blockchain Techniques for Communication

Published 08 April, 2021

The rapid development of storage technologies, in combination with factors such as the appearance of mobile networks, the Internet of Things, cloud computing and new technologies, has sparked a revolution in using big data and blockchain to address communication issues. However, as we know, some big data are unstructured and are accompanied by redundant characteristics. Handling them is complex and involves time, so solutions must be found to compress or remove the redundancies. At the same time, we need to find secure methods for data analytics in blockchain. Moreover, the application of big data and blockchain to communication problems, including network traffic monitoring, security and privacy, and data processing, remains poorly understood and investigated.

Some see machine learning algorithms as the solution to these issues, particularly neural networks, genetic algorithms, deep learning and transfer learning, etc.

This special issue focuses on the crossroads that scientists, industry practitioners and researchers working in the domains of machine learning, big data, and blockchain currently face. We are interested in papers that look at algorithms, frameworks and technologies for machine learning-driven big data and blockchain techniques in communication.
