Welcome from the Chairs

Dear Colleagues,

Thank you for joining our webinar. It is our pleasure to host a discussion around a Special Issue on Sensors focused on Multimodal Sensing Technologies for IoT and AI-Enabled Systems from a multidisciplinary perspective.

With discussions about AI and IoT gaining momentum, it is imperative for critical educators, researchers, students, and broader professionals/experts to re-evaluate and rearticulate multiple aspects of the technological capabilities, concerns, and challenges of using AI and IoT sensing. Proper usage, security, and ethical matters of employing such timely tools and services are also brought into the discussion, given that the technological evolution is much faster than the advances in the formation of a solid regulatory framework. Among other things, social and age exclusions in the use of the new capabilities must be minimized so as to reach multiple potential users and audiences with different backgrounds and competencies. Thus, literacy activities and interdisciplinary dissemination, as the current webinar aims, are vital for accomplishing the set targets.

Particularly, it is essential to bring forward technology limits and expectations, emphasizing on challenges in real-time wireless cyber-physical systems, on the use of multimodal content analysis services for the non-technologist that might be encountered in Media professionals and Journalism communities, on automating the cyber-physical things domain via low/no code pipelines that average users can comprehend and employ. Highly impacted researchers are implicated as instructors in this event, aiming at highlighting multiple different but also complementary perspectives. With opportunities for radical social and educational transformation becoming foreclosed, the aim of this Webinar (and the associated Special Issue) is to broaden the scope and space of critical pedagogical discourse and the development of related ideas. Therefore, through this webinar, we will discuss the urgency of this call in more depth and initiate a conversation with potential authors.
