Research output: Contribution to journalSpecial issuepeer-review


In recent years, artificial intelligence has been used to generate a significant amount of high-quality data, like images, music, and videos. The creation of such a vast amount of synthetic data was made possible due to the improved performance of different machine learning techniques, like artificial neural networks. Considering the increased interest in this area, new techniques for automatic data generation and augmentation were recently proposed. For instance, generative adversarial networks (GANs) and their variants are nowadays popular techniques in this research field. The creation of synthetic data was also achieved with evolutionary-based techniques, for instance in the context of multimedia artifacts creation. This Special Issue aims to collect new contributions in the area of generative models in artificial intelligence, focusing on their applications for addressing complex real-world problems in engineering, medicine, entertainment, manufacturing, optimization, business, and related fields. We kindly invite researchers and practitioners to contribute their high-quality original research or review articles on these topics to this Special Issue.
