Artificial intelligence is being widely used in many fields. In 2018, nearly all sub-disciplines of artificial intelligence gained a series of progress. This paper selects the sub-disciplines such as human-machine fusion intelligence, swarm intelligence, cognitive computing, affective computing, intelligent robot, smart city, and medical treatment with artificial intelligence, so as to review the hot topics of artificial intelligence in 2018.
