In recent decades, machine learning (ML) technologies have made it possible to collect, analyze, and interpret a large amount of sensory information. As a result, a new era of intelligent sensors is emerging that changes the ways of perceiving and understanding the world. The integration of ML algorithms with artificial intelligence (AI) technology benefits other areas such as Industry 4.0, Internet of Things, etc. leveraging these two technologies, it is possible to design sensors tailored to specific applications. To this end, signal data, such as electrical signals, vibrations, sounds, accelerometer signals, as well as any other kind of sensory data like images, numerical data, etc. need to be analyzed and processed from real-time algorithms to mine useful insights and to embed these algorithms in sensors.
