Artificial Intelligence for the Internet of Everything considers the foundations, metrics and applications of IoE systems. It covers whether devices and IoE systems should speak only to each other, to humans or to both. Further, the book explores how IoE systems affect targeted audiences (researchers, machines, robots, users) and society, as well as future ecosystems. It examines the meaning, value and effect that IoT has had and may have on ordinary life, in business, on the battlefield, and with the rise of intelligent and autonomous systems. Based on an artificial intelligence (AI) perspective, this book addresses how IoE affects sensing, perception, cognition and behavior. Each chapter addresses practical, measurement, theoretical and research questions about how these “things” may affect individuals, teams, society or each other. Of particular focus is what may happen when these “things” begin to reason, communicate and act autonomously on their own, whether independently or interdependently with other “things”.

About the Editors

William Lawless

Dr. Lawless was formerly an engineer who oversaw nuclear waste management; in 1983, he became a whistle blower against the Department of Energy’s (DOE) mismanagement of its radioactive wastes. For his PhD, he studied the causes of mistakes by large organizations with world-class scientists and engineers. After his PhD, DOE invited him to join its citizen advisory board at DOE’s Savannah River Site, Aiken, SC. As a founding member, he coauthored over 100 recommendations on DOE’s environmental remediation. Afterwards, he became the Board’s technical advisor. He was a member of the European Trustnet hazardous decisions group. He is a senior member of IEEE. His research is on mathematical metrics for teams. He has previously published three co-edited books on Artificial Intelligence. He has published over 70 articles and book chapters, 145 peer-reviewed proceedings; and is co-editing a Special Issue of AI Magazine on “Computational context”. He has co-organized eight AAAI symposia at Stanford (e.g., in March 2018: Artificial Intelligence for the Internet of Everything; in March 2019: Artificial intelligence (AI), autonomous machines and constructing context: User interventions, social awareness and interdependence; see at:; see our supplemental website for details:
