Advances in machine learning techniques, improvements in sensors, and ever-greater computing power have helped create a new generation of hardware and software robots with practical applications in nearly every industry sector. This progress has, in turn, excited the interest of venture investors, technology firms, and a growing number of clients that are implementing intelligent automation in both physical and information systems. Our next generation of Industry 4.0—holds the promise of increased flexibility in manufacturing, along with mass customization, better quality, and improved productivity. Smart technologies, such as smart community, cloud implementation, 5G technology, healthcare and social applications ,machine-to-machine measurement, smart cities, IoT Gateway systems, Cyber physical systems and security (CSPs), Augmented/Virtual reality, production improvement in agricultural electrification with smart expansion to manufacturing of crops, milk diaries, drug discovery and information resource management that are enable to make intelligent innovate smart technologies. These apply in the fields of computer science, computer engineering and information systems etc., there exists a need for an edited collection of original research in this area

This book will aim to provide relevant abstract frameworks and the latest experimental research findings in theory, mathematical models, software applications, prototype in the area of smart technologies. It will be written for researchers and professionals who want to improve their understanding and significant development in the current smart technology models, that beefed up in artificial intelligence computation and its application in everyday business and industry. Featuring extensive coverage on a broad range of topics such as self-monitoring and application technology (SMART).


Target Audience
The book will be useful to a wide range of persons, such as students of computer science and machine learning specialists, researchers, industrial experts, post graduate students who are work/ working in the field of data science. The chapters are selected based on applied research in the area of Industry automation, procedures, proposals of new innovative smart methods to solve small or large real world application domain. In general the book is intended for representation of the wide range of public interest in advancement in Smart implementation and for those are interested to produce impact in the current smart technologies.
