Special Issue on Artificial Intelligence for Machinery Diagnostics and Prognostics
Submission Date: 2023-10-15

Machinery diagnostics and prognostics are involved in several engineering areas, such as manufacturing, energy, transportation, and aerospace. In these areas, the failure of key components such as bearings, gears, and motors will have a serious negative impact on the operation of the entire equipment. Timely detection of faults in machinery can ensure operational efficiency and quality, and prevent catastrophic accidents. With the development of sensor technology and communication technology, machinery diagnostics and prognostics have entered the era of big data. The combination of artificial intelligence technology and big data has significantly improved the accuracy of machinery diagnostics and prognostics. Artificial intelligence technology makes it possible to mine information about the health status of equipment directly from the raw data, but the distribution of the data is a key factor in determining the effectiveness of data mining. For example, data imbalance, a real and unavoidable data distribution in the field of machinery diagnostics and prognostics, can seriously impact the training process and the convergence correctness of diagnostic and prognostic models. Therefore, it is important to eliminate the negative effects of data imbalance when constructing machinery diagnostics and prognostics models in order to improve the accuracy of diagnostics and prognostics in practical applications. Artificial Intelligence has received increasing attention for machinery diagnostics and prognostics in recent years. However, there are still some outstanding issues that need to be improved. This special issue aims at stimulating discussions through state-of-the-art contributions on the latest research and development, up-to-date issues, and challenges.

Special Issue on Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence Application in Healthcare Supply Chain
Submission Date: 2023-10-30

Nowadays, the growing challenges of supply chains have put pressure on health organizations. Managing the healthcare supply chain is more complex than other industries because dealing with patient health requires accurate, adequate, and timely medical supplies.New technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) have affected most industries. The logistics or supply chain industry is influenced by advances in AI technology. This powerful technology enables the automation and simplification of countless processes and helps companies save time and money. ML/AI approaches using computer techniques to solve complex problems, especially healthcare supply chain problems, have many applications. Guest editors: Assoc.

Special Issue on Recent Advances on Digital Economy-Oriented Artificial Intelligence
Submission Date: 2023-12-31

Nowadays, the digital economy (DE) is a key economic development direction, and artificial intelligence (AI) is a critical strategic tool of DE. “AI-assisted economy” has emerged as a new economic paradigm, widely accepted by governments around the world, and is regarded as one of the most important implementations of DE. Thus, the development of digital economy-oriented artificial intelligence (DE-oriented AI) technologies has not only theoretical significance but also practical value. DE-oriented AI technologies are distinct from general AI technologies in that they are theories, methods, algorithms, and software to promote the economic development or transformation in a digital manner. DE is the main economic form after the agricultural economy and the industrial economy, of which the typical characteristics are (1) treating the data resources as key elements, (2) integrating information and communication technologies, (3) using modern information network as main carrier, and (4) leveraging all-factor digital transformation as an important economic driving force. The viewpoint that is generally accepted by academic and industrial communities is that data, algorithms, and computing power are three essential aspects of AI. In fact, these three elements are connected with the first three characteristics of DE: the data are the core element of both AI and DE; AI algorithms should be built based on the integration of information and communication technologies; and the improvement of computing power needs the support of modern information network to implement cross-cluster computing. The fourth characteristic of DE is precisely the AI's contribution to DE. Although AI and DE have received increasing attention, there are some bottlenecks for AI applications in DE. For example, how to train an efficient big AI model with relatively low computational resource consumption, how to use advanced AI technologies to intellectualize economic activities, and how to formalize the relationship between DE and AI. Thus, there is a large opportunity to investigate reliable, robust and efficient DE-oriented AI technologies. To share the most recent advances, current challenges and potential applications of Theories and Methods for DE-oriented AI, we are delighted and honored to propose this special issue of Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence.
