CALL FOR PAPERS



Special Issue on:
Electronic Commerce in the Artificial Intelligence Era



Recent advancements of artificial intelligence (AI) have been transforming the electronic commerce (eCommerce) industry. Using AI, eCommerce businesses not only operate workflow automation through robotic process automation but also understand their customers better and offer relevant products at the right time. There are many examples and use cases. For example, Chatbots and other eCommerce virtual assistants with voice-based interactions could effectively respond to their inquiries and provide customer support. By using AI capabilities such as self-learning algorithms and natural language processing (NLP), they are enhancing the impact of AI in eCommerce. AI personalization in eCommerce marketing can also enable eCommerce firms to analyze customers’ behavior and make precision recommendations for their customers. Another prominent AI use-case area is electronic financial service including mobile payment, credit system, and financial service using AI innovation. For example, Ant Financial, one of the largest global FinTech financial institutions in the world, has built up successful personal credit and financial services using AI-powered applications. Although we expect AI would be more impactful in eCommerce in the future, we also face the challenges brought by applying AI technologies. The challenges include ethical applications of advanced AI, governance, regulation, compliance, safety, and privacy.



This special issue calls for original high-quality papers addressing broad areas of eCommerce challenges and issues in AI era to provide technical, managerial, and policy implications. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
