In the era of smart technologies, the fusion of Edge Artificial Intelligence (Edge AI) with image and video processing capabilities stands as a groundbreaking frontier, reshaping the landscape of scalable multimedia analytics. Traditionally, the centralized nature of cloud-based processing has posed challenges related to latency, bandwidth, and privacy concerns in the context of Scalable Image and Video Processing applications. The objectives include pushing the boundaries of visual data analytics by investigating state-of-the-art Edge AI techniques, displaying transformative impacts across diverse domains, tackling edge-specific challenges such as efficiency and latency, and catalyzing interdisciplinary collaboration. The emergence of Edge AI, however, has empowered devices at the network periphery to not only capture but also intelligently process and analyze visual data in real-time. This confluence of Edge Computing and AI introduces a transformative potential for applications ranging from smart cities and healthcare to industrial automation and surveillance.

In this context, our special issue invites researchers, practitioners, and visionaries to contribute their insights and findings to a collective exploration of the manifold dimensions of unleashing the power of Edge AI for scalable image and video processing. The spotlight is on scalable architectures, intelligent algorithms, and innovative applications that leverage the computational prowess of edge devices. We seek to unravel the intricacies of distributed Edge AI systems, delve into the energy-efficient dimensions of edge computing, and explore the symbiotic relationship between edge and cloud resources.
