Special Paper Session #1: PHM in Big Data Era

Nowadays, the amount of the collected industrial data has grown in an exponential manner. Such explosion of data makes PHM endorse the concept and power of big data. The industrial big data bring the field of PHM new perspectives and challenges in assessing the degradation of a mechanical system and enhancing its safety and robustness. Therefore, it is urgent to introduce big data techniques, such as deep learning and cloud computing, into the field of PHM. These techniques help to automatically mine valuable information from the industrial big data, accurately identify/predict the performance of the mechanical systems and effectively develop the schemes of management and maintenance.

In order to exchange research ideas and facilitate cooperation in the field of PHM in big data era, Professor Yaguo Lei, from Xian Jiaotong UniversityChina, will organize a special session at the upcoming 2018 IEEE International Conference on Prognostics and Health Management, which is named as “PHM in big data era”. This special session will cover a broad range of big data techniques for PHM research and application topics as follows:

  1. 1.Deep learning based PHM;
  2. 2.Transfer learning based PHM;
  3. 3.Bayesian learning based PHM;
  4. 4.Reinforcement learning based PHM;
  5. 5.Cloud computing based PHM;
  6. 6.Other topics related to PHM in big data era.


Scholars focusing on PHM in big data era are welcome to submitting your papers to this special session.
