The world is on the verge of fully ushering in the fourth industrial revolution, of which artificial intelligence (AI) is the most important new general-purpose technology. Like the steam engine that led to the widespread commercial use of driving machineries in the industries during the first industrial revolution; the internal combustion engine that gave rise to cars, trucks, and airplanes; electricity that caused the second industrial revolution through the discovery of direct and alternating current; and the Internet, which led to the emergence of the information age, AI is a transformational technology. It will cause a paradigm shift in the way’s problems are solved in every aspect of our lives, and, from it, innovative technologies will emerge. AI is the theory and development of machines that can imitate human intelligence in tasks such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and human language translation.
This book provides a complete overview on the deep learning applications and deep neural network architectures. It also gives an overview on most advanced future-looking fundamental research in deep learning application in artificial intelligence. Research overview includes reasoning approaches, problem solving, knowledge representation, planning, learning, natural language processing, perception, motion and manipulation, social intelligence and creativity. It will allow the reader to gain a deep and broad knowledge of the latest engineering technologies of AI and Deep Learning and is an excellent resource for academic research and industry applications.
