Special Issue on Triboinformatics (Artificial Intelligence Machine Learning Applied to Surface Topography)

Call for papers for Special Issue of Surface Topography – Metrology and Properties (IOP journal) “Artificial Intelligence Machine Learning Applied to Surface Topography and Pattern Recognition” Call for papers
Guest Editors:
Dr Sasan Mahmoodi ECS, University of Southampton, UK
Professor Robert Wood Mechanical engineering, University of Southampton, UK
Dr Michael Nosonovsky Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

This special issue aims to cover a review of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML) techniques available and used to identify surface patterns and to optimise finishing processes in manufacturing and surface engineering. It will also include the latest research in the use of AI/ML in instrumentation, design, microstructure, manufacture, healthcare and health monitoring and degradation or evolutions of surface topography/texture. Applications may include astronomy, geology and archaeology as well as engineering, biomedical, biometrics and chemistry.

This special issue will highlight how AI/ML can help surface design and functionality and we seek contributions covering aspects from surface design, modelling and experimental verification as well as surface measurement and characterisation. Your contribution would be most welcome.
