Aims & Scope

All the countries of the world are facing severe consequences amid Coronavirus
(COVID-19) and have emerged as a major threat to human society. Digital technologies can play a vital role in giving a fight back challenge to the pandemic by fostering data science; machine learning and artificial intelligence-based research. A digitally sound response to the COVID-19 pandemic can take numerous forms and have greater potential to enable Smart Healthcare towards the Smart Cities. In recent days, one important area where rapid developments have been recorded is new claims of sustainable computing, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). These techniques are not only helping in developing new medicines and drugs but also can help in the screening of the affected population and assessing infection risks.


Our aim and objective of initiating this special issue is to foster the researches in the
recent advances of Data Science and sustainable computing fields i.e. ML and AI
approaches that can help the community in combating COVID-19 pandemic and foster the path towards Smart healthcare and Smart Cities.
