It turns out that the answer depends on whom you ask, and that the answer differs widely across disciplines, time and places. We discuss the diversity of views about what intelligence is because empirical studies often assume rather than explore the nature of the construct they are investigating.
During recent years, Information Technology (IT) influenced and changed every aspect of our lives and our cultures. Without various IT-based applications, we would find it difficult to keep information stored securely, to process information efficiently and to communicate information conveniently. Future IT stands for all of the continuously evolving and converging information technologies, including digital convergence, embedded systems, mobile and wireless communications, social networks and media, UI/UX, security and trust computing, robots and intelligence, and so on in order to satisfy our ever-changing needs. This Special Issue is intended to foster the dissemination of state-of-the-art research in all future IT areas, including their models, services, and novel applications associated with their utilization.
