SUMMARY Industry 4.0 pushes towards manufacturing automation through the digitalization of industrial processes and the adoption of smart technology like Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Industry 4.0 solutions go beyond the application to smart factories, also covering the sectors of logistics and traceability, smart agriculture, healthcare, and others. The enormous amount of generated data poses challenges concerning the collection and management of big data, but also opens to several opportunities, as the extraction of knowledge from these data can drive decision-making and the continuous improvement of industrial operations and production chain processes. The distance between the research fields of electronics and data analysis is still considerable and makes it difficult to identify and seize these opportunities. The most common question that practitioners and researchers with electronic backgrounds ask is What can I do with all this data.

This Special Issue of Electronics aims to build a bridge between the world of electronics and data analysis by presenting the state-of-the-art advancement in the adoption of Big Data and Artificial Intelligence techniques to meet the requirements of Industry 4.0. We welcome novel contributions, in every application area, of innovative methodological proposals and practical applications, as well as sophisticated review articles. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following topics
- Industry 4.0
- Industrial Big Data and AI
- Cyber-Physical Systems
- Smart Factory
- Predictive Maintenance
- E-Health
- Smart Agriculture
- Industrial Process Monitoring and Automation
- Digital Transformation Processes
- Data-Driven Applications
