The COVID 19 pandemic has revealed many information gaps in our understanding of the spread of contagious diseases, preventative measures and the development and deployment of vaccines.

The combination of Artificial Intelligence, machine learning, big data, cloud computing, next generation networks and mobile devices may play a role filling some of these gaps.

For example, our mobile devices might be effective in identifying symptoms and diagnosing diseases such as those COVID-19 by using accumulated cloud-based big data on disease prevelance, transmission and diagnosis. This combination effectively forms a system of distributed processing modules that can be used to record data transactions on multiple interconnected smart devices – what we call ‘an internet hospital’.

This Special Issue aims is seeking research articles that contribute to the current state of the art in cloud-assisted identification, diagnosis and management for COVID-19 and similar diseases. It aims to draw together research in mobile Internet, big data, artificial intelligence, cloud computing and other technologies that can be combined in novel ways build cost-efficient ‘internet hospitals’ and other types of medical service platforms. The challenges that internet hospitals can meet include intelligent screening, symptom monitoring, online consultation, drug distribution and mental health support. The issue aims to brings together a broad multidisciplinary community to integrate ideas, theories, models and techniques from different disciplines.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
