Data Analytics and Decision Making for Internet-of-Things (IoT) Enabled Systems
We are living in the age of IoT, where internet-of-things (IoT) enabled systems are ubiquitous. An IoT device, broadly defined, is a device connected to the internet, allowing users to access its data and to control its functions remotely. The ubiquitous availability of IoT devices has the great potential of bringing broad disruptive societal impacts, particularly on economic competitiveness, quality of life, public health, and essential infrastructure. For example, (1) In manufacturing systems, we can collect data from all the workstations to make system operations transparent and enable smart operation decisions to improve various key performance measures. (2) Through smart home appliances, we can obtain their usage pattern and then control their operations accordingly for enhancing home security and optimizing energy use. (3) By providing wearable devices to patients, we can monitor their physiological condition in real time and collect observations of daily living (ODL) data, which can be used for more accurate diagnosis and clinical intervention. (4) By observing the failure events from multiple units, we can establish a fleet-based reliability model and make individualized failure prognosis.
In this IoT age, a large amount of data from multiple similar subjects/devices/machines are available in real time. The dimension and volume of the data collected is often very large and contains data of different fidelities and diverse types (data streams, images, videos, continuous, discrete, etc.). These features set forth the need to rethink many traditional predictive and prescriptive methods to adapt to (1) unique data features collected in IoT settings (2) the need for individualized inference while still leveraging information across subjects (3) real-time predictions and decisions often at very high frequencies.
This special issue aims to publish original, significant, and visionary papers describing scientific methods and technologies with both solid theoretical development and practical importance for IoT enabled systems. Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:
All papers are to be submitted through mc.manuscriptcentral.com/iietransactions. Please select "Special Issue" under Manuscript Category of your submission. All manuscripts must be prepared according to the IISE Transactions publication guidelines.
