已有 3018 次阅读 2017-12-20 08:25 |系统分类:论文交流

Blockchain, as an emerging decentralized architecture and distributed computing paradigm underlying Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, has attracted intensive attention in both research and applications recently. Blockchain, especially powered by chain-coded smart contracts, has the full potential of revolutionizing increasingly centralized Cyber-Physical-Social Systems (CPSS) for constructions and applications, and reshaping traditional knowledge automation workflows. The key advantage of blockchain technology lies in the fact that it can enable the establishment of secured, trusted and decentralized autonomous ecosystems for various scenarios, especially for better usage of the legacy devices, infrastructure and resources*.


Blockchain is essential to knowledge automation, a direction for further development of Artificial Intelligence technology and a normal general framework for dealing with management and control of CPSS type complex systems. The goal of knowledge automation is from UDC to AFC, that is, dealing with issues of Uncertainty, Diversity and Complexity with capacity of Agility, Focus and Convergence**.


Blockchain and knowledge automation have emerged as a dynamic and fast-growing research area. Many issues need to be addressed and further investigations are critical for future development. Therefore, to stimulate innovation in this new direction, the aim of this special issue is to call for the state-of-the-artworks on blockchain and knowledge automation.


The topics of this special issue include, but are not limited to

1. Fundamental Theories and Approaches of Blockchain

2. Distributed Consensus Algorithms

3. Theories and Applications of Smart Contracts

4. Integration of Blockchain and Internet of Things

5. New Business Models of Blockchain Industries

6. Big Data and Trusted Computing

7. Social Computing and Social Intelligence

8. Theories and Approaches of Knowledge Automation

9. Intelligent Information Processing and Knowledge Engineering

10.Knowledge-based Intelligent Management and Control
