Special issue on comprehensive evaluations of AI and ML techniques across interdisciplinary fields

Published 14 May, 2024

This special issue of the Journal of Economy and Technology (JET) seeks to assemble a rigorous collection of scholarly articles that critically examine the efficacy and impact of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) across a range of disciplines. The aim is to promote interdisciplinary research that evaluates advanced AI technologies, offering insights into their practical applications and theoretical implications.

Contributions are invited in the following key areas:

Extensive AI/ML Evaluations Across Disciplines: Papers should focus on in-depth analyses of AI applications, assessing their integration, usability, and impacts on various fields.

Synergy of Advanced and Traditional AI Techniques: Research detailing the integration of state-of-the-art AI technologies with established informatics practices to solve complex real-world challenges is particularly welcome.

Reliability and Interpretability of Emerging AI Technologies: Submissions should evaluate the trustworthiness and explainability of new AI models, incorporating discussions on regulatory landscapes, policy implications, and strategic frameworks for future AI research in interdisciplinary contexts.

This issue welcomes comprehensive reviews of current literature, regulatory standards, and best practices, with the aim to encourage discussions on the strategic integration of AI into research and practice across multiple domains.
