Aims and Scope

AI Perspectives will cover the application of AI in industry, healthcare, transport, education, social sciences and humanities, and business and economics. We use a strict high-level selection process to ensure an excellent publication quality.

AI Perspectives publishes innovative applications of artificial intelligence with a focus on an in-depth description how basic research enabled the application, how applied research triggers new questions for basic research, and how integration of various AI methods in application can be achieved. This includes articles discussing the interaction of data driven vs. model driven AI, system oriented and integrated research, and the responsibility, ethics, explainability, and transparency of AI.

Mission statement


"The main challenge for AI in the next decade will be integration. We must study and ultimately understand how to integrate the various areas of AI (from Reasoning to Deep Learning and Robotics) into systems that serve mankind for the better and that are transparent in their design and application.“

COVID-19 and impact on peer review

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
