Cognitive radio (CR) is the solution for the current spectral underutilized problems, Context awareness and environment awareness are the key functions of CR nowadays. A software radio with reconfiguration capacity will become Cognitive Radio by imparting intelligence to SDR using Artificial Intelligence Techniques. There are processes in CR such as spectrum sensing, monitoring, and management involves the use of AI techniques. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is directed along with “cognitive” functions for better learning and classification. Recently deep learning involves more “self-learning” algorithms without any supervision. Hence it is important to discuss the various AI techniques for better resource optimization in CR networks. Optimization parameters are different for different techniques depend upon the radio environment. The type of AI technique for a particular application is random.
