Ad hoc and ubiquitous computing has been widely introduced and adopted to collect data for improving the quality of decision making in various areas including engineering, manufacturing, weather monitoring, and transportation (e.g. vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANETs)). However, some arising issues, such as large volumes of data, incomplete and incompatible data sets, noise data, etc., lead to the difficulty of realizing the true value as well as exploiting the full potential. Machine learning and deep learning methods have been extensively used as a powerful tool to perform feature detection/extraction and trend estimation/forecasting in the wireless network applications. The supervised machine learning methods, for example, neural network (NN), convolutional neural network (CNN) (e.g. ResNet, DenseNet, etc.), and recurrent neural network (RNN) (e.g. long-short term memory (LSTM), gated recurrent unit (GRU)), can be exploited in the applications pertinent to prediction and classification, whereas the unsupervised machine learning methods, such as restricted Boltzmann machine (RBM), deep belief network (DBN), deep Boltzmann machine (DBM), auto-encoder (AE), and denoising auto-encoder (DAE), can be utilized for data denoising and model generalization. Furthermore, the reinforcement learning methods, including generative adversarial networks (GANs) and deep Q-networks (DQNs), are also a sophisticated tool for generative networks and discriminative networks to optimize the contesting process in a zero-sum game framework. These well-developed methods can contribute substantially to the performance enhancement of predictions and classifications in the relevant applications, but there are some research issues which require further attention from our research communities.Subject Coverage
