Information technologies in the form of networked things, automation,
data analytics and artificial intelligence allow for evolutionary and
revolutionary progress in industry (Industry 4.0). On this focus day we
connect technical and human factors aspects by discussing deep learning

Industry 4.0, and the impact on how industrial work will be conducted in
the future.

The seven main scientific topics considered in this special issue are:

• Cognitive support and cognitive automation for human understanding and
decision processes

knowledge-intensive work tasks
• Smart learning or situated learning for a professional and
self-regulated work life in production and assembly
