Special issue information
The world is undergoing a thoughtful revolution with the arrival of the intelligent
information era. The central realms accompanying smart living such as transportation,
entertainment, healthcare and smart cities are projected to improve service quality assuring
a high-end user experience. Future mobile networks are projected to foster the future of
ubiquitously connected data-intensive intelligent society powered with complete
automation by seamless integrating of all sorts of wireless networks spread over the ground,
underwater, air and space; see, e.g., Ramasamy et al. (2021).
The modern networks must deliver better performance than previous generations to address
the necessities of emerging services and applications. Of late, the Internet of Things (IoT) is
revolutionizing the existing industry into smart infrastructure presented with advanced
data-driven architecture; see, e.g., Jian et al. (2022). Nevertheless, with the insufficiency of
spectrum resources, efficient resource management and sharing are crucial to achieving all
these ambitious requirements. One possible technology to accomplish all this is the
blockchain. Due to its inherent properties, the blockchain has recently attained an important
position, which is of great significance for future networks. Blockchain technology has
attracted significant attention attributable to the decentralization, transparency, spectrum
resource abundance, inherent privacy and security, interoperability, confidentiality and
emerging smart application domains including Industrial IoT and Industry X.0. Especially
the integration of the blockchain in 6G has enabled the network to monitor and manage
resource utilization and sharing efficiently; see, e.g., Almaiah et al. (2022).
Acta Informatica Pragensia Volume 11, 2022
Exploration of blockchain has been emerging in the artificial intelligence (AI) platform to gather sensor
data with the support of high-performance computing networks. The conventional process encompasses
a set of data in a centralized manner and henceforth heterogeneous data from the various sources are
accumulated in the server, leading to central issues in communication. AI-based methods can enhance the
privacy and security issues in the modern wireless paradigm; see, e.g., Nguyen et al. (2021). AI-based
approaches also improve the smart systems' connectivity with increased network capacity, quality of
service, network availability and user experience. In blockchain, each miner has plenty of computing
resources, which could be used for AI training, and smart contract services of blockchain will diminish
the overall costs of smart applications. AI and blockchain have the potential for dynamic resource
management and mobility management in the 6G network; see, e.g., Amjad et al. (2022).
This special issue aims to bring together foremost researchers in academia and engineering from various
backgrounds to disseminate to the technical community an outline of emerging technologies, advanced
architectures, challenges, open issues and future directions of modern networks in AI, IoT, and
The potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
• Sustainable blockchain for network security and communication,
• Wireless blockchain sensor network,
• Health blockchain for IoT network optimization,
• Artificial intelligence and blockchain in advanced network communication,
• Deep learning with blockchain for network security,
• Socio technology with blockchain,
• Blockchain for big data networks,
• Blockchain computer vision,
• Blockchain for environmental sustainability,
• Internet of medical things with blockchain,
• IoT in medical diagnosis using blockchain framework,
• Blockchain model in intelligent medical diagnosis,
• Supervised, unsupervised and reinforcement learning using blockchain models.
