To develop innovative and intelligent systems or programs suitable for the future, a theoretical approach is needed to recognize problems that are appropriate for various situations. To this end, many researchers are developing various types of systems based on their new ideas. Recently, Deep Learning has been applied to various fields by improving the performance of neural network technology which is a conventional artificial intelligence function. By sharing an open source (e.g., TensorFlow) for deep learning, we are able to utilize it for our own purposes without difficulty and obtain better research results than our previous research results. Deep Learning can work with sensors that can gather a lot of information. In addition, sensor networks have expanded over the past few years in a variety of areas such as heritage conservation, environmental movement and human activity. Therefore, integration of intelligent machine learning system and sensor data is a natural choice and sensor based recognition technology with artificial intelligence is emerging as an important research field.

This special issue aims to share the latest machine learning research results, including results from various sensor-based studies, with many researchers. This study has just initiated in both industry and academia, but with great fervor all over the world.

This special issue features six selected papers with high quality. The first article, “An Intelligent Product Recommendation Model to Reflect the Recent Purchasing Patterns of Customers” [1] proposed a new product recommendation model to reflect the recent purchasing patterns of customers. In addition, various data mining classifiers such as the decision tree, neural network, support vector machine, random forest, and rotation forest are applied, and a sliding-window scheme is considered to construct the recommendation model.

The second article titled “SMinder: Detect a Left-behind Phone using Sensor-based Context Awareness” [2] presented a technique to detect the situation of forgetting to take the phone when getting off the car. SMinder reminds the user with high accuracy and minimum energy consumption, making it realistic for real-world use.

In the next article with the title “Attack Detection Application with Attack Tree for Mobile System using Log Analysis” [3], the authors developed an Android OS-based detection application for a personal information disclosure attack on smartphones. For attackers’ privacy spoofing attacks, applications can compare and analyze attack trees to identify the type of path a mobile attack passes through.

The fourth article titled “Application of Emotion Recognition and Modification for Emotional Telugu Speech Recognition” [4] proposed a method to improve performance on synthetically generated emotional words using the rhythm correction method. Because the majority of Automatic Speech Recognition System (ASR) is trained in a neutral sense, it can affect the performance of the system for emotional speech. ASR technology is important in terms of human-machine interaction.

The fifth article, “Recommending the Best Merchant from Previous Transactions” [5] proposed a system that recommends the best traders from previous transactions. To do this, association rules are extracted based on the distance between merchants, the categories of merchants, the number of times items are purchased together, and the user’s preference.

The last article titled “Design of Efficient Key Video Frame Protection Scheme for Multimedia Internet of Things (IoT) in Converged 5G Network” [6] propose a transmission method that improves Quality of Service (QoS) to support various high quality multimedia contents in the 5th generation convergence network.

In particular, this paper proposes a priority-based key frame protection method for QoS enhancement in 5G convergence network.



The guest editors are thankful to our reviewers for their effort in reviewing the manuscripts. We also thank the Edit-in-Chief, Dr. Imrich Chlamtac for his supportive guidance during the entire process.
