Introduction to the Special Section on Software Engineering for Intelligent Systems and Control
Intelligent systems are technologically advanced machines that perceive and respond to the world around them. Intelligent systems are becoming an inseparable part of any field of business and any profession. The design, operation and interfacing of intelligent systems require knowledge and tools from several fields, especially software engineering. Modern organizational systems combine information and knowledge system management, sensors and signal analysis, data and text mining, and learning algorithms and technologies.
This special section addresses various scopes on Software Engineering for Intelligent Systems and Control. Out of the 51 submissions for this special section, 16 papers were selected after a rigorous review process. The papers presented in this special section contribute high-quality theoretical and practical works. They focus on the complexity of software systems, addresses architecting, designing, building, testing, analyzing, evaluating, deploying, maintaining, and evolving software systems. Software engineering addresses the development and use of various concepts and techniques to specify, verify, and test large software systems. These include formal methods, collaborative computing paradigms, peer-to-peer systems, and component-based enterprise systems.
