Scanning the Issue and Beyond: The Endless ITS Frontier in CSP Spaces

 

With my great pleasure, I would like to announce that Prof. Petros Ioannou of the University of Southern California has been elected as the fourth Editor-in-Chief of IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON INTELLIGENT TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS by the Board of Governors of IEEE ITS Society on June 27 at its meeting in Seoul, Korea. After three terms and seven years’ service, I will step down as the EiC and will be succeed by Petros next year. I am sure that our journal will move to a new and higher level of quality and service under Petros’ leadership. For the remaining half of this year, the IEEE ITSS BoG has approved our request to increase our page budget to 3600 to reduce the backlog and be ready to publish the T-ITS monthly in 2016, which would be another milestone in the history of IEEE T-ITS. In addition, to accommodate the rapid and significant development in intelligent vehicle technology recently, our newest journal, IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON INTELLIGENT VEHICLES, will be launched next year. The Seoul BoG meeting has also selected Changshu, a city of Suzhou near Shanghai, as the site of China’s new Intelligent Vehicles Proving Center, to host the 2018 IEEE Intelligent

Vehicle Symposium, and Prof. Nanning Zheng and I will lead the effort to organize the event.

 

In July, IEEE ITS Society also opens its first Summer School on Frontiers in ITS: Transportation 5.0 and Beyond, in Qingdao, Shandong, China, the site for the 2014 IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Conference (ITSC 2014). Many interesting and exciting topics are addressed there, which I will be back to after scanning the issue. 

 

The Endless ITS Frontier in CSP Spaces

 

On the day it was issued 70 years ago in July, Vannevar Bush’s report Science: The Endless Frontier, was greeted by front page headlines in the New York Times. Since then, the report has come to occupy a biblical status in science policy and become a pillar of support for the prerogatives of fundamental and unfettered research and development. Inspired by the report and also to celebrate the 70th anniversary of its publication, as well as the 10th anniversary of the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Society, we decided last year at IEEE ITSC to have the IEEE ITSS Summer School on Frontiers in ITS: Transportation 5.0 and Beyond, the first summer school of the IEEE ITS Society, which is supported and operated by the Qingdao Academy of Intelligent Industries (QAII) and IEEE ITS Shandong Chapter, from July 12 to July 17, 2015 in Qingdao.

 

The summer school has eight speakers and 60 researchers and graduate students from four countries/regions, topics ranging from artificial intelligence, traffic visualization, deep learning, social transportation, natural language processing, active safety systems, data-driven and model-driven approaches, and social media and movement for traffic intelligence, to benefit cost analysis for life-saving transportation improvement. My lecture is on parallel transportation and transportation 5.0, covering my long-term basic research and recent investigation on ITS, from ACP-based ITS, ITS knowledge automation, total traffic control, social signal and social transportation, to parallel driving and driving knowledge robots for automated partially to autonomous vehicles. The Summer School is still in process as I am writing this editorial, and I hope it will be a big success and great start for our Summer School program.

 

Science is the endless frontier, and the potential for IT Sresearch, development, and application is also endless. Since the first trial almost 50 years ago of applying hierarchical intelligent control systems based on a combination of artificial intelligence, operations research, and control technology for urban traffic operations in the city of Indianapolis, Indiana, by the late Prof. George N. Saridis, my former Ph.D. advisor, I have been often asking myself the question: Where is the big “I” of Intelligence in ITS research and applications? Now it seems that the satisfactory answer to the question is near: the big I cannot come from the physical world alone; it must come from Karl Popper’s combined three worlds of physical, mental, and artificial, or in engineering terms, the integrated Cyber–Social–Physical Spaces. Uber, DiDi Dache, or DiDi Taxi Calling, and their recent fierce competition in China, has provided strong support and a showcase for my observation. In other words, intelligence, especially intelligence in ITS that involves human and social behaviors, must be derived from and based on the principle of virtual-real duality and related virtual-actual interactive parallel intelligence. The term CSP for cyber–social–physical is identical with the term CPSS for cyber–physical–social systems, but now I feel the original term CSP, as used in my report for the establishment of the CAST (Complex Adaptive Systems for Transportation) Laboratory 15 years ago, is more appropriate. Especially, this is in line with the ACP approach that uses artificial societies/systems for achieving agility, computational experiments for providing a mechanism of focusing, and parallel execution for the ensure of convergence to the goal or objectives in uncertain, diversified, and complex operations, such as transportation.

 

Transportation in CSP is the endless frontier, now and future.
