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.
