Smarten Up on Machine Learning With These IEEE Resources

Publications and groups can help engineers improve their understanding

6 June 2016

These resources can get you up to speed on various aspects of AI.


The quarterly IEEE Technology and Society Magazine publishes articles concerned with how artificial intelligence and other technologies affect the world. The magazine is from the IEEE Society on Social Implications of Technology.

The quarterly IEEE Transactions on Computational Intelligence and AI in Games discusses video and mathematical games, and other amusements, as well as human-computer interactions. It explores using games as platforms for building embedded intelligent agents for the real world.

The publication is sponsored by the IEEE Computer, Computational Intelligence, and Consumer Electronics societies, as well as the IEEE Sensors Council.

The scope of the monthly IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics from the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society includes computational approaches to the field. It covers such areas as computer vision, neural networks, genetic algorithms, machine learning, fuzzy systems, cognitive systems, decision-making, and robotics.

Also from the society is the IEEE Transactions on Human-Machine Systems. Published six times a year, it covers human organizational interactions including cognitive ergonomics and system testing and evaluation.

The monthly IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence investigates statistical and structural pattern recognition, image analysis, computational models of vision, computer vision systems, shape and texture analysis, restoration, segmentation, and feature extraction.

Published by the IEEE Computer Society, the journal also includes articles on artificial intelligence, logical and probabilistic inference, speech recognition, and understanding natural language.

The IEEE Transactions on Robotics, published six times a year, and the quarterly IEEE Robotics & Automation Magazine are produced by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society. Both publications cover advances in theory and experiments that underpin the science of robotics and automation.


An IEEE Standards Association Industry Connections Activity—the Global Initiative for Ethical Considerations in the Design of Auto­nomous Systems—was formed in March to help provide recommendations for the ethical implementation of standardized intelligent technologies. An executive committee composed of experts within the realms of artificial intelligence, autonomous technologies, and ethics is providing guidance for the initiative. 

The IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence is concerned with pattern recognition, AI, expert systems, natural language understanding, image processing, and computer vision.
