Special Session on
Integrating Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning with DevOps:
Harmonizing Agility and Unleashing Synergy

Aim and Scope

In recent years, the convergence of Machine Learning (ML) and DevOps practices has emerged as a transformative force, empowering organizations to enhance automation, optimize workflows, and drive continuous improvement. These technologies aim to leverage ML capabilities to streamline development pipelines, enhance monitoring, and enable intelligent decision-making throughout the software development lifecycle.

The main objective is to encompass key stages of DevOps, including continuous integration, continuous delivery, continuous testing, and continuous monitoring. Machine learning algorithms are employed to automate mundane tasks, predict potential issues, and optimize resource allocation, thereby contributing to faster and more reliable software delivery, and also addresses challenges associated with model deployment, version control, and ongoing monitoring in a DevOps environment.

The core of the session elucidates key ML concepts applicable to DevOps, such as algorithmic considerations, continuous integration, and predictive analytics. Practical aspects are highlighted, showcasing how ML seamlessly integrates into CI/CD pipelines, automated testing, and quality assurance processes.

This special session solicits original, high-quality research papers into topics including, but not limited to:

  • AI and Machine Learning in Health Sector.
  • Machine Learning and AI for Cloud Computing.
  • Security and Privacy with Machine Learning Ops.
  • Human Augmentation: Integrating AI with Human Capabilities.
  • Blockchain and Decentralized Technologies.
  • Quantum Computing: Current State and Future Prospects.
