Aims and Scope:
Industry 4.0 refers to the introduction of digital technologies and development of skills, resources and high-tech for the evolution of Industrial Factories. The concepts of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and its applications in Industry 4.0 are popular among researchers. Further development is crucial to the future of the Industry.
Several industrial applications are being designed and deployed using AI and ML. Besides, numerous researchers from diversified domains are working towards the amalgamation of these technologies. Different types of industries and research outputs require to work in Industry 4.0 platforms, including the use and integration of AI, ML, Big Data and the Internet of Things (IoT). Therefore, there is an urgent need to develop future-proof types of AI and ML applications, services, architectures and proofs-of-concept.
The primary scope of this special section is to cover the areas of AI and ML for Industry 4.0. We invite researchers from academia as well as industry to describe the current state of technologies to harness the power of Artificial Intelligence in the long term. This special section is intended to report high quality, recent and original research work on Industrial applications using AI and ML methods to design new data models and applications for Industry. Best paper winners and top authors from IoTBDS 2021 (http://iotbds.org/) and COMPLEXIS 2021 (http://www.complexis.org/), to be held 23-25 April, 2021 online streaming and IIoTBDSC 2021 http://iiotbdsc.com/ (24-26 August, 2021, Macao, SAR of China or virtual) shall be invited. We also strongly welcome authors of unpublished work and high-quality outputs to submit.
The topics of interest include
New technologies, digitalization and analytics for industrial solutions with AI and ML
