Conference on Industry and Innovations Enabled by Industry 4.0 Technologies (CANCELLED)

Unfortunately, we had to cancel the USEI40 event. Please consider INNOCONF.

Date: May 6, 2023

Location: San Jose State University, San Jose, CA, USA

Industry 4.0 was stimulated by many new technologies including AI, IoT, sensors, networking, robotics, and others. This has led to great improvements in manufacturing, control systems, and other industry systems. Research is leading us to the “Digital Twin” where we can evaluate industry systems, pro-actively correct possible problem and, eventually, test new components in accurate simulation prior to using them in the industrial setting. Now, we are observing that these technologies along with similar strategies as used in industry are stimulating many technical business solutions including healthcare and consumer products. This conference brings together the research and industry perspectives of the opportunity and challenges enabled with these technologies in multiple areas including healthcare and entrepreneurship.

Program Overview

This one-day event is divided into a morning plenary where multiple speakers will address the technologies making Industry 4.0 and how they are being applied to other areas.  Speakers will consider the technology and business perspectives, opportunities, and challenges. Speakers will represent industry, research, and IEEE programs in this area.

A group lunch will allow all to network together.

The afternoon will have parallel sessions with focuses on research and business presentations in the Topic Areas. This section will have its papers to be published in the IEEE Xplore subject to meeting IEEE Xplore’s scope and quality requirements.
