Call for Chapters: Applied AI and Multimedia Technologies for Smart Manufacturing and CPS Applications

Organization: IGI Books, USA
Categories: Science, Engineering
Event Date: 2022-05-05 Abstract Due: 2022-01-25

In the past decade, artificial intelligence (AI), data analytics and multimedia technology methods for integrating cyber-physical systems (CPS), smart manufacturing and Industry 4.0 applications in the manufacturing industries have been steadily growing in availability. State of the art multimedia technologies coupled with innovative AI and data analytics technologies have insured and enhanced the integration of smart manufacturing and Industry 4.0 applications such as digital twin technologies, augmented and virtual realities, computer vision applications, tactile Internet, human-robot collaboration applications, learning factories, additive and in-situ 3D printing etc.

However, for industrial captains, finding applicable, cost effective and readily implementable multimedia, AI and data analytics methods for specific industrial applications remains a daunting, laborious and very expensive endeavor since the ecosystem of new AI, data analytics and multimedia applications keeps diverging. For some vertical industries, AI, multimedia and data analytics technology integration remains quite expensive. Oftentimes, due to task and technology mismatch, when technology integration proposals are paid for and implemented, they often fail to satisfy the fine-grained requirements of their specificity. This problem often have adverse effects on industrial productiveness, time-to-market of product, factory running costs, product overhead costs and ultimately, the cost of the final product to the downstream consumers.

This book provides a review of the state of the art regarding the integration of AI and multimedia technologies for smart manufacturing applications. In addition, detailed industrial integration examples are given for specific AI and multimedia technologies. Cost benefits analysis are also conducted regarding the benefits of the integration of specific AI and multimedia technologies in specific industrial manufacturing applications. Uses of both R&D and empirical analysis are adopted throughout the book to examine the impacts of the integration of specific multimedia and AI technologies for stated industrial manufacturing applications.

Through the usage of numerous detailed examples regarding the integration of some specific state-of-the-art AI and multimedia technologies in the manufacturing industries, it is envisaged that this book will provide much needed guidance for industrial captains, people in academia, college R&D students, captains of government agencies and parastatals; etc.; regarding the methods and the attendant benefits of the integration of certain AI and multimedia technologies to industrial manufacturing applications. In addition, the book will serve as a bridge by which discoveries and R&D works in educational institutions in the area of smart manufacturing, CPS and Industry 4.0 can be readily transitioned and integrated into useful lean manufacturing, smart manufacturing and factory of the future applications.

Target Audience
The target audience of this book will be composed of industrial professionals and academia researchers working in the field of smart manufacturing, Industry 4.0 and CPS in various multimedia and AI disciplines, e.g. machine learning, embedded system technologies, industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), learning factories applications, industrial communication networks, augmented and virtual realities applications, production engineering computing, additive manufacturing, multimedia motion analysis for industrial applications, tactile Internet, and industrial video analysis. Moreover, the book will provide insights and support executives, academia in R&D and industrial captains concerned with industrial work-flow management, system integration, IIoT, predictive and prescriptive maintenance for industrial machines, critical industrial networks' capability assurance and management, supply chain management, product tracking and product integrity management.

Recommended Topics
Lean manufacturing technologies, multimedia video analysis and segmentation for industrial applications, multimedia applications for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), in-situ 3D manufacturing, tactile Internet applications, factory of the future applications, solutions for embedded artificial intelligence integration, multimedia industrial data management and visualization, multimedia solutions for human-robot interaction, industrial computer vision applications, industrial deep learning applications, industrial transfer learning applications, industrial real-time video analysis and synthesis, architecture for industrial hybrid communication networks, multimedia applications for industrial hybrid communication networks, industrial augmented and virtual realities applications, computer graphic for industrial applications, agile manufacturing systems application, methods for reactive and reconfigurable manufacturing and assembly lines.

Submission Procedure
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before June 30, 2021, a chapter proposal of 1,000 to 2,000 words clearly explaining the mission and concerns of his or her proposed chapter. Authors will be notified by July 2, 2021 about the status of their proposals and sent chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by July 21, 2021, and all interested authors must consult the guidelines for manuscript submissions at http://www.igi-global.com/publish/contributor-resources/before-you-write/ prior to submission.
