The exploration and analysis of collective data has had a profound impact on our society, allowing to better analyze our common needs. This collective intelligence has become one of the most popular applications of many data mining techniques. However, as our understanding of collective knowledge has improved, it has become clear that in order to enhance its impact, it would be necessary to align it more closely to human intelligence. In essence, human intelligence has evolved steadily over several generations, and today human expertise excels in multiple domains and in knowledge-acquiring artifacts.
The primary goal of this SI is to focus on the frontiers of human intelligence mining toward building a body of knowledge in this key domain. The focus is also to present state-of-the-art scientific results, to disseminate modern technologies, and to promote collaborative research in mining collective intelligence and knowledge exploration. We seek to receive research papers focusing on learning to explore smart and intelligent systems. This special issue is a follow up of MIKE’2020 conference ( but it is open to new original research submissions in the area of Collective Intelligence and Knowledge Exploration.

Topics of the special issue include but are not limited to:

  • Evolutionary computation
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Machine learning
  • Knowledge Exploration in IoT
  • Data mining and Information retrieval
  • Medical image analysis, Pattern analysis and Computer vision
  • Speech and Signal processing
  • Text mining and Natural language processing
  • Intelligent security systems
  • Smart and Intelligent systems
