Applied Artificial Intelligence techniques have proven to be efficient and flexible at solving dynamic and complex real-world problems. The multimedia content consisting of image and video data is abundantly shared online including numerous amount of datasets. The plethora of techniques under the banner of applied artificial intelligence (AI) includes Machine Learning, Neural Networks, Deep Learning, Fuzzy Logic, Evolutionary Computation, Intelligent Agent Systems, Cellular Automata, Game Theory, and other similar systems. The use of these techniques has enabled the development of robust decision support systems across numerous fields. The combination of multimedia and applied AI in agriculture, food production, and its security, environmental sustainability will open vast areas of research for multimedia-rich applications such as video streaming, farming, organic cultivation, diseases, pests control, diagnosis, and so forth. Since the new multimedia data keeps growing exponentially, the applied AI techniques will be useful to come up with robust solutions for decision making. For example, how to collect data and related information in real-time, and how to rapidly process a large amount of multimedia data using image processing techniques, and further to apply the applied artificial intelligence techniques to achieve desirable performances in terms of both accuracy and efficiency.

Thus, for this special issue, deeply investigated works describing both theoretical and practical evaluations related to the design, analysis, and implementation of technologies for image processing in healthcare, agriculture, and environmental sustainability in multimedia systems are invited.
