About these proceedings


This book presents the latest research on computational approaches to learning. It includes high-quality peer-reviewed papers from the “Intelligent and Interactive Computing Conference (IIC 2018)” organized by the Universiti Teknikal Malaysia, Melaka. It uses empirical studies, theoretical analysis, and comparisons with psychological phenomena to show how learning methods can be employed to solve important application problems. The book also describes ongoing research in various research labs, universities and institutions, which may lead to the development of marketable products.
