Details of Proposed Session
The advancement of technology clues to the growth of smart industries & the development of smart and secure environments in various domains. Industry 4.0 marks a new phase in the Industrial Revolution that focuses heavily on interconnectivity, automation, machine learning, and real-time data. Industry 4.0 takes the emphasis on digital technology from recent decades to a new level with the help of interconnectivity through the Internet of Things (IoT), access to real-time data, and the introduction of cyber-physical systems. Smart Manufacturing combines operational technology with information technology to provide digital business technology. The complementary techniques in machine learning and big data analytics provide a more holistic and better-connected ecosystem for companies that focus on manufacturing and supply chain management. The prerequisite of artificial intelligence in the industry is witnessed through Industry 5.0 which is emerging as the Cognitive Cyber-Physical System. Not only focused on industry, but the theme of the special session also focuses on the development of Smart City, Digital Transactions, Health Care Systems, Agriculture Things, and Smart Irrigation.
This special session seeks original research and technological development for addressing real and complex issues related to society and technology.
A research area for this special session includes but not limited to:
