The advancement in technology has brought people, businesses, countries and the overall global market place closer than ever before and this trend with no doubt will continue to accelerate over time. This phenomenon involves the real-time networking of products, processes and infrastructure. Industry 4.0 will have profound global impacts on manufacturing processes, business models, technologies, the workplace and people’s everyday lives.

Industry 4.0 comes with challenges. Today, manufacturers deal with huge quantities of information, both structured and unstructured, which reside in databases that are not always properly connected. To create business value and meet customer expectations in terms of innovation, personalisation and speed to market, it is necessary to connect these silos and enable a single, unbroken collection of data that is woven throughout the supply chain.

Supply, manufacturing, maintenance, delivery and customer service are all connected via the Internet. Smart machines, warehousing systems and production resources are capable of independently exchanging information, triggering actions and autonomously controlling each other. This makes it possible to achieve a fundamental improvement in industrial processes: rigid value chains are being transformed into highly flexible value networks.

Special Session on "Machine Learning (ML) and Knowledge Mining (KM)"

The special issue on Machine Learning (ML) and Knowledge Mining (KM) invites the researchers /Academia to submit the original work in the area of Machine learning and Knowledge Mining. Machine learning and Knowledge Mining represents the development in the field of Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics & Business Intelligence and played vital role in information technology and sciences. Basically Machine learning is the technology of implementing a system which can act without being explicitly programmed. ML & KM has the ability to adapt to new circumstances and to detect and extrapolate patterns. One key goal of ML and KM are to be able to generalize from limited sets of data.

Machine learning has been used to develop self-driving cars, practical speech recognition system, effective web search engines, and a greatly improved understanding of the human genome. In general Machine learning deals with designing and developing algorithms to evolve behaviors based on empirical data. Machine learning and Knowledge Mining applications includes algorithms to identify spam or to stop credit card fraud, systems that analyze past sales data to predict customer behavior, extract knowledge from bioinformatics data, images and video, optimize robot behavior so that a task can be completed using minimum resources, identify hear failures not limited to them but a long list of interesting and extremely useful applications.  Machine learning and Knowledge Mining is so persistent today that we probably use it dozens of times a day without knowing it.
