Deep Learning for Cross-Media Analysis and Knowledge Discovery

The Science Partner Journal (SPJ) Intelligent Computing is now seeking submissions for a special issue, Deep Learning for Cross-Media Analysis and Knowledge Discovery.


Nowadays, there are lots of heterogeneous and homogeneous media data from different sources, such as news media websites, mobile phones, social networking websites, TikTok, etc. Integrated together, these media data represent different aspects of the real-world and help document the evolution of the world. Consequently, it is impossible to correctly conceive and to appropriately understand the world without exploiting the data available on these different sources of rich multimedia content simultaneously and synergistically. Cross-media analysis is a research area in the general field of multimedia content analysis that focuses on the exploitation of data with different modalities from multiple sources simultaneously and synergistically to discover knowledge and understand the world. 

As this research area is becoming increasingly integrated into our daily lives, there is a significant amount of research interest among different communities in improving cross-media analysis and knowledge discovery, and various novel solutions have been proposed to address different real-world applications. In this special issue of Intelligent Computing, a Science Partner Journal (SPJ), we hope to bring together community research in this area into a curated selection of articles. This special issue allows both Research Articles and Review Articles about cross-media analysis and knowledge discovery. More detailed submission instructions, e.g., manuscript format and submission guidance, are provided on the “For Authors” page

Note that the exceptional merits and advantages of this special issue are: very quick publication (less than 2 months after submission, if acceptable), Open Access to widely global readers via various prestigious AAAS & SPJ-enabled pipelines, and no APCs (article processing charges) until 2025.
