Artificial Intelligence and Optimization for Managing Food and Water Supply and Predicting Disease

Over the course of the last 2-3 decades, researchers have made great strides in applying Machine Learning (ML), Optimization, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to agriculture, food, and biomedical sciences. Recently, there has been important progress in using these technologies to ensure high-quality drinking water, sustainable food supply, and disease prediction through analysis of food and water supply. This Article Collection solicits papers related to the use of Machine Learning, Optimization, and/or Artificial Intelligence for managing food and water supply and predicting disease.

Approximately three billion people worldwide survive on groundwater for drinking, and providing high-quality drinking water has become one of the key challenges for human society. Water quality also has a substantial affect on non-human animal and plant ecosystems. The prediction of water quality (including drinking water, wastewater, groundwater, surface water, seawater, and freshwater) is an emerging research topic of particular importance, as these different types of water have different characteristics. Support vector machine (SVM), artificial neural network (ANN), and group method of data handling (GMDH) are utilized for predicting water quality components.

ML/AI is also being used for agricultural purposes. For instance, the Digital Agriculture, Food and Wine (DAFW) group utilizes various ML/Optimization applications (such as decision tree classification techniques, sensor networks, and genetic algorithm-based multi-objective optimization techniques) to obtain meaningful information for optimal agricultural decision making. Researchers are also exploring fertilizer management using sensor networks through ML/AI.

Further, ML plays important role in the food industry. Toxic chemicals, such as arsenic, can be found both in water and in in human food sources (e.g. chicken, pork), threatening both animal and human health. ML is an efficient and effective approach to resolve the critical challenges of food and water contamination, as the complex, nonlinear relational data can be easily controlled by ML. Researchers have been using different learning models based on the fuzzy inference systems and multilayer perceptron (MLP) methodologies to ensure food safety and to predict the future of food supply. ML/AI can also be used to detect or predict disease (such as cancer) that result from contaminated food and water.

This article collection calls for papers related (but not limited to) the following topics:

  • Performance of ML/AI/optimization methods in predicting water quality.
  • Data management challenges using AI in plant and agricultural research.
  • Multi-class classification system for the continuous water quality monitoring.
  • Water level monitoring using single/multi-class/subtype classification techniques.
  • Water Quality Classification through Data Mining approaches.
  • Water supply clusters and few-shot learning methodologies for the plant disease recognition using semi-supervised learning.
  • ML for Big Data analytics in plants or food (e.g., chicken, pork) related data profile.
  • Big Data and ML in Water Sciences.
  • Water-level forecasting through fuzzy logic and AI-based neural network approaches.
  • Various tissue-type or subtype cancer prediction collected on geographical area-based or food/water-based Microarray or Sequence (patient) data analysis.
  • River Flow Estimation through AI and Fuzzy Techniques.
  • Evaluation of surface water quality for drinking by using fuzzy inference system.
  • Plant Leaf Disease Detection by Neuro-Fuzzy classification.
  • Regression analysis in plant cell, tissue, and organ culture experiments as well as in Prediction of Crop Yield.
  • Diagnosis of Poultry Disease using ML or Deep Learning or regression models.
  • ML/DL Models of Groundwater Arsenic Spatial Distribution and applied to water pollution detection.
  • Applications of Machine Learning in Food Safety.
  • Biosensor application for water/food supply.
