Artificial intelligence (AI) is all around us. From driver-less cars to game winning computers to fraud protection, AI is already involved in many aspects of life, and its impact will only continue to grow, in the future. Many of the world’s most valuable companies are investing heavily in AI research and development, and not a day goes by without news of cutting edge breakthroughs in AI and robotics. As the field of AI and Robotics continues to grow, the timely dissemination of emerging research and developments is increasingly important. This new book series serves as a publication venue for innovative technical contributions in AI and robotics, with coverage of both theoretical AI research and applied AI and robotics.
We are looking for a broad range of textbooks, reference books, and handbooks in the following areas: Knowledge Representation and Reasoning, Affective Computing, Deep Learning/Neural Networks, Natural Language Processing, AI Safety, Machine Ethics, Superintelligence, Technological Singularity, Multi-Agent Systems, Programming Languages for AI, Robot Navigation, Robotic Applications, and more. We are also willing to consider other relevant topics that may be proposed by potential contributors.
