Special Issue on Smart Service, Smart Business, Smart Research in Journal
of the Association for Information Systems

Recently, the Future Today Institute published its 2018 Tech Trends Report,
which identifies “emerging technology trends that will influence business
government, education, media and society in the coming year.” Within the
report, “smart” appears 269 times, “tech” appears 464 times, “intelligence”
appears 89 times, and IT-enabled services and technologies feature
prominently in categories across sectors; this collective evidence suggests
that IT-enabled smart services are expected to become a major trend in the
near future.

Smart technologies that combine artificial intelligence and innovative
technologies (e.g., the Internet of things, soft robots, image and voice
recognition, block chain mechanisms, unmanned vehicles) offer new and
valuable production possibilities, allowing information resources to be
processed and integrated in new ways to create unprecedented smart
services. Smart services often are based on real-time data collection and
intelligent data analyses, as well as networked and creative IT systems and
platforms. Smart services are also cross-disciplinary and lead to
disruptive changes in many different areas, including manufacturing,
finance, insurance, healthcare, and tourism, among others.

Smart services provide the basis for emerging value networks that create
new opportunities in manufacturing (e.g., instant mass production of
personalized sneakers) and promote the development of new products and
services. With respect to finance services, new technologies have generated
a range of innovations that include smartphone-driven mobile banking,
investment services, and smart contracts. Moreover, information technology
and innovation are also impacting the health care industry, as consumers’
growing demands for smart health services has led to the development of new
healthcare models. In particular, patients’ desire personalized healthcare
technologies (e.g., intelligent diagnosis, wearable devices, and distant
medical services) that allow them to better manage their healthcare.
