This book explores the dynamic intersection of three cutting-edge technologies—Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), and Cloud Computing—and their profound impact on diverse domains. Beginning with an introduction to AI and its challenges, it delves into IoT applications in fields like transportation, industry 4.0, healthcare, and agriculture. The subsequent chapter explores AI in the cloud, covering areas such as banking, e-commerce, smart cities, healthcare, and robotics. Another section investigates the integration of AI and IoT-Cloud, discussing applications like smart meters, smart cities, smart agriculture, smart healthcare, and smart industry. Challenges like data privacy and security are examined, and the future direction of these technologies, including fog computing and quantum computing, is explored. The book concludes with use cases that highlight the real-world applications of these transformative technologies across various sectors. Each chapter is also supplemented with a list of scholarly references for advanced readers.

The book is intended primarily as a resource for students in information technology and technology courses. And as a secondary resource for industry professionals who want to learn about these technologies in the context of digital transformation.

Audience: Students and Industry professionals.


Artificial intelligence has a place in the evolution of human intelligence, complicating teleological explanations in which symbolic artificial intelligence is a natural and inevitable result of attempts made over many years to reduce human reasoning to a logical formalism. Due to this, the history of artificial intelligence is not merely the chronicle of mechanical attempts to mimic or replace some fixed idea of human intelligence but also a developing narrative of what intelligence is. IoT can communicate without the need for a human. The related items will gain new capabilities thanks to the Internet of Things. Some early Internet of Things applications have already been created in the healthcare, transportation, and automotive industries. IoT technologies are still in their infancy.

In contrast, there have been a lot of new advancements made in the integration of items with sensors in the cloud-based Internet. The term "cloud computing" has recently become popular among people who work in distributed computing. It is a concept for providing accessible, on-demand grid admission to a standard, programmable collection of computer aids that can be quickly delivered and discharged with little administration work or service provider involvement. Multiple people think that the cloud will revolutionize the IT sector.

This textbook is a collection of the authors' suggestions regarding cloud, integration techno- logy, artificial intelligence, and the Internet of Things. The chapters summarize the technology's applications and drawbacks, and suggest future paths by various authors. As it provides greater insight into different technologies, researchers, and students, the collection is profitable for young readers. I want to express my gratitude to Bentham Science Publications for allowing me to write this book. I want to express my appreciation to the management of my college for their help and support. I also want to thank my friends and family for their support.
