Applied Biomedical Engineering Using Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Models focuses on the relationship between three different multidisciplinary branches of engineering: Biomedical Engineering, Cognitive Science and Computer Science through Artificial Intelligence models. These models will be used to study how the nervous system and musculoskeletal system obey movement orders from the brain, as well as the mental processes of the information during cognition when injuries and neurologic diseases are present in the human body. The interaction between these three areas are studied in this book with the objective of obtaining AI models on injuries and neurologic diseases of the human body, studying diseases of the brain, spine and the nerves that connect them with the musculoskeletal system. There are more than 600 diseases of the nervous system, including brain tumors, epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, stroke, and many others. These diseases affect the human cognitive system that sends orders from the central nervous system (CNS) through the peripheral nervous systems (PNS) to do tasks using the musculoskeletal system. These actions can be detected by many Bioinstruments (Biomedical Instruments) and cognitive device data, allowing us to apply AI using Machine Learning-Deep Learning-Cognitive Computing models through algorithms to analyze, detect, classify, and forecast the process of various illnesses, diseases, and injuries of the human body. Applied Biomedical Engineering Using Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Models provides readers with the study of injuries, illness, and neurological diseases of the human body through Artificial Intelligence using Machine Learning (ML), Deep Learning (DL) and Cognitive Computing (CC) models based on algorithms developed with MATLAB® and IBM Watson®. Provides an introduction to Cognitive science, cognitive computing and human cognitive relation to help in the solution of AI Biomedical engineering problems Explain different Artificial Intelligence (AI) including evolutionary algorithms to emulate natural evolution, reinforced learning, Artificial Neural Network (ANN) type and cognitive learning and to obtain many AI models for Biomedical Engineering problems Includes coverage of the evolution Artificial Intelligence through Machine Learning (ML), Deep Learning (DL), Cognitive Computing (CC) using MATLAB® as a programming language with many add-on MATLAB® toolboxes, and AI based commercial products cloud services as: IBM (Cognitive Computing, IBM Watson®, IBM Watson Studio®, IBM Watson Studio Visual Recognition®), and others Provides the necessary tools to accelerate obtaining results for the analysis of injuries, illness, and neurologic diseases that can be detected through the static, kinetics and kinematics, and natural body language data and medical imaging techniques applying AI using ML-DL-CC algorithms with the objective of obtaining appropriate conclusions to create solutions that improve the quality of life of patients

This book contains 16 chapters by researchers working in various fields of data science. They focus on theory and applications in language technologies, optimization, computational thinking, intelligent decision support systems, decomposition of signals, model-driven development methodologies, interoperability of enterprise applications, anomaly detection in financial markets, 3D virtual reality, monitoring of environmental data, convolutional neural networks, knowledge storage, data stream classification, and security in social networking. The respective papers highlight a wealth of issues in, and applications of, data science. Modern technologies allow us to store and transfer large amounts of data quickly. They can be very diverse - images, numbers, streaming, related to human behavior and physiological parameters, etc. Whether the data is just raw numbers, crude images, or will help solve current problems and predict future developments, depends on whether we can effectively process and analyze it. Data science is evolving rapidly. However, it is still a very young field. In particular, data science is concerned with visualizations, statistics, pattern recognition, neurocomputing, image analysis, machine learning, artificial intelligence, databases and data processing, data mining, big data analytics, and knowledge discovery in databases. It also has many interfaces with optimization, block chaining, cyber-social and cyber-physical systems, Internet of Things (IoT), social computing, high-performance computing, in-memory key-value stores, cloud computing, social computing, data feeds, overlay networks, cognitive computing, crowdsource analysis, log analysis, container-based virtualization, and lifetime value modeling. Again, all of these areas are highly interrelated. In addition, data science is now expanding to new fields of application: chemical engineering, biotechnology, building energy management, materials microscopy, geographic research, learning analytics, radiology, metal design, ecosystem homeostasis investigation, and many others.

The volume of data that is generated, stored, and communicated across different industrial sections, business units, and scientific research communities has been rapidly expanding. The recent developments in cellular telecommunications and distributed/parallel computation technology have enabled real-time collection and processing of the generated data across different sections. On the one hand, the internet of things (IoT) enabled by cellular telecommunication industry connects various types of sensors that can collect heterogeneous data. On the other hand, the recent advances in computational capabilities such as parallel processing in graphical processing units (GPUs) and distributed processing over cloud computing clusters enabled the processing of a vast amount of data. There has been a vital need to discover important patterns and infer trends from a large volume of data (so-called Big Data) to empower data-driven decision-making processes. Tools and techniques have been developed in machine learning to draw insightful conclusions from available data in a structured and automated fashion. Machine learning algorithms are based on concepts and tools developed in several fields including statistics, artificial intelligence, information theory, cognitive science, and control theory. The recent advances in machine learning have had a broad range of applications in different scientific disciplines. This book covers recent advances of machine learning techniques in a broad range of applications in smart cities, automated industry, and emerging businesses.
