Nowadays the rapidly developing artificial intelligence has become a key solution for problems of diverse disciplines, especially those involving big data. Successes in these areas also attract researchers from the community of fluid mechanics, especially in the field of active flow control (AFC). This article surveys recent successful applications of machine learning in AFC, highlights general ideas, and aims at offering a basic outline for those who are interested in this specific topic. In
