Introduction:

In the ever-changing realm of technology, three specific areas shine bright with their power to bring about significant change—AI-driven educational and literacy platforms, the use of AI in renewable energy and combating climate change, and the integration of AI in creating smart cities and robust communities. These spheres embody the fusion of advanced research and real-world implementations harnessing the capabilities of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to tackle pressing challenges. In our proposal for this special issue, we delineate the distinctive emphasis on each domain, underscoring their pertinence and setting them apart from other proposals.

Special Focus:


AI-Powered Education and Literacy Systems

Cybersecurity: Educational platforms powered by AI collect and process vast amounts of sensitive student data, including personal information, learning patterns, and assessment results. Implementing robust cybersecurity measures is essential to protect this data from unauthorized access, data breaches, and malicious attacks. Encryption techniques such as AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) can be employed to secure data both in transit and at rest. Additionally, implementing secure authentication mechanisms such as multi-factor authentication (MFA) and biometric authentication can prevent unauthorized access to educational platforms.

Digital Systems Security: Digital systems within educational platforms, such as payment gateways for subscription fees, document repositories for educational resources, and blockchain-based credential systems for certifications, require stringent security measures. Secure payment gateways should utilize SSL/TLS encryption protocols to protect financial transactions. Document repositories should implement access controls and encryption to safeguard sensitive educational materials. Blockchain-based credential systems should employ cryptographic hashing and consensus algorithms to ensure the integrity and immutability of educational credentials.


AI-Enhanced Systems for Renewable Energy and Mitigating Climate Change


Energy Security: The integration of AI in renewable energy systems introduces new security challenges, as cyber-attacks on critical energy infrastructure can have significant consequences for energy security. Implementing cybersecurity measures such as intrusion detection systems (IDS), firewalls, and security information and event management (SIEM) systems can help detect and mitigate cyber threats. Secure communication protocols such as Transport Layer Security (TLS) can be utilized to protect communication between renewable energy devices and control systems.


Digital Systems Security: Digital systems within the renewable energy sector, such as payment systems for energy transactions, document management systems for regulatory compliance, and blockchain-based energy trading platforms, require robust security measures. Secure payment systems should implement tokenization and encryption to protect financial transactions. Document management systems should enforce access controls and encryption to protect sensitive regulatory documents. Blockchain-based energy trading platforms should employ secure smart contracts and consensus mechanisms to prevent unauthorized transactions and tampering with energy trading records.


Smart Cities Empowered by AI, Robust Communities


Cybersecurity: Smart city infrastructure, consisting of interconnected devices and sensors, is vulnerable to cyber-attacks that can disrupt essential services and compromise citizen safety. Implementing cybersecurity measures such as network segmentation, intrusion detection systems (IDS), and encryption can help mitigate cyber threats. Secure communication protocols such as IPsec (Internet Protocol Security) and TLS can be employed to protect communication between smart city devices and systems.


Digital Systems Security: Digital systems within smart cities, such as payment systems for municipal services, document management systems for urban planning, and blockchain-based platforms for citizen engagement, require robust security measures. Secure payment systems should utilize encryption and tokenization to protect financial transactions. Document management systems should enforce access controls and encryption to safeguard sensitive urban planning documents. Blockchain-based citizen engagement platforms should employ secure smart contracts and consensus mechanisms to ensure the integrity and immutability of citizen engagement records.

By addressing these security aspects, stakeholders can help mitigate risks and build trust in AI-powered solutions across education, renewable energy, and smart city domains.
