In the context of the intelligent era, the continuous development of the new generation of information technology gradually makes intelligent health services into sight of researchers. Intelligent healthcare has also become a frontier development direction in industries. The research in the field of intelligent healthcare has very important theoretical significance, application value, and economic benefits. Intelligent healthcare business has changed the traditional passive nursing, and promoted the active perception and preventive nursing of healthcare. Deep learning has played a huge role in the field of intelligent healthcare, and has gradually become a hot topic for researchers. The most widely used deep learning algorithms include Restricted Boltzmann Machines (RBM), Deep Belief Network (DBN), Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN), Recurrent Neural Network (RNN) and Stacked Denoising Auto Encoder (SDAE). These deep learning algorithms have promoted the further development of intelligent healthcare to some extent.

At present, research on intelligent healthcare is in rapid progress. Although some research results have been achieved, there are still some problems that need to be solved urgently. Firstly, in the current era of data explosion, numerous medical data emerge simultaneously. Meanwhile, there is also a considerable amount of false or garbage information, which affects the stable operation of the intelligent healthcare system and brings inconvenience to the medical diagnosis of patients. Secondly, privacy is also a problem that needs to be paid attention to in intelligent healthcare research. Personal medical diagnosis information often has certain privacy, so it is necessary to focus on the protection of privacy information in intelligent online consultation, so as to improve the application effect of intelligent medical diagnosis. Thirdly, the application of deep learning in intelligent healthcare at the present stage is generally concentrated in data mining, medical imaging diagnosis and so on. There are few efforts in the field of overall healthcare and the whole process of adjuvant therapy, medical diagnosis and postoperative nursing. In summary, it is essential and urgent to further expand the application scope of deep learning in intelligent healthcare, optimize the application effect, and establish a full-range intelligent health care system.

This Special Issue focuses on data mining, big data analysis technology, deep convolution networks, generate against networks (GAN), gradient boosted machines (GBM) and deep reinforcement learning (DRL) to be applied in healthcare practices, such as disease transmission prediction, auxiliary diagnosis, post-recovery assessment of disease, new drug research and development, identification and early warning of psychological illness, health management, medical image recognition.
