Abstract: Nowadays, industrial enterprises and companies are addressing the challenge of transforming Industrial IoT (IIoT) ideas, Industry 4.0, Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), and similar concepts into reality. In the Industry 4.0 era, various data management research challenges have to be addressed. Huge amounts of heterogeneous sensor data must be processed in real-time to control the production machines. Data processing through smart devices is more significant compared to information processing capacity. Data has become humongous, even coming from a single source. Besides, unstructured data from production reports or external sources must also be integrated to analyze and optimize the production process. Therefore, when data emanates from all heterogeneous sources distributed over the globe, its magnitude makes it harder to process up to a needed scale.

The world has seen many breakthroughs in machine learning and artificial intelligence research. By integrating the advances in smart devices, and big data analysis with the advances in machine learning, the future role of smart systems, networks, and applications is becoming limitless. It’s expected to revolutionize the world’s future within the next few years. By integrating hardware, software, data collection, and advanced data analytics techniques, such as predictive and prescriptive analysis, advanced systems can develop by leveraging tools and real-time insights on industry performance. Furthermore, advanced artificial intelligence solutions enable deeper insights and more intelligent, more agile methods that improve operational performance at an industrial scale.
