Like every year, a new edition of the International Conference on Distributed Computing and Artificial Intelligence (DCAI) was held this week. 15 memorable editions are already behind us, this means that it is the 15th time that more than 300 participants gathered to share our ideas, projects and knowledge, all related to distributed computing and artificial intelligence, and their application in different areas. This meeting took place in Toledo from the 20th to the 22nd of June 2018, within the framework of PAAMS’18.
Distributed computing plays an increasingly important role in modern signal and data processing, information fusion and electronic engineering (e.g. e-commerce, mobile communications and wireless devices). In particular, the application of artificial intelligence in distributed environments is becoming an element of high added value and economic potential. Research on Distributed Intelligent Systems has matured over the last decade and many effective applications are now being deployed.
These technologies are constantly changing as a result of the great technical and research effort that is being carried out both in universities and in companies. The exchange of ideas between scientists and technicians, both from academia and business, is essential to facilitate the development of systems that meet the demands of today’s society.
For this reason, DCAI 2018 becomes an essential forum for those interested in Distributed Computing and Artificial Intelligence.
