题目：Smart and Interconnected Systems: From Industry 4.0 to Healthcare 4.0
Dr. Jingshan Li received the BS and MS in Automation and PhD in Electrical Engineering from Tsinghua University, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and University of Michigan, in 1989, 1992 and 2000, respectively. He was with General Motors Research & Development Center from 2000 to 2006, and with University of Kentucky from 2006 to 2010. He is now a Professor in Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, and the Associate Director of Wisconsin Institute of Healthcare Systems Engineering, University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI.
Dr. Li is the co-author of Production Systems Engineering (Springer, 2009; Chinese edition by BIT Press, 2012) , and co-editor of 7 book volumes. Up-to-date, he has published over 110 refereed journal articles, 15 book chapters and 120 peer reviewed conference proceedings. He is the Senior Editor of IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering, IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters, IISE Transactions, and Flexible Service and Manufacturing Journal, and the Associate Editor of International Journal of Production Research and International Journal of Automation Technology. He was the founding Chair of IEEE Technical Committee on Sustainable Production Automation (2012-2016) and has been the Chair of IEEE Technical Committee on Automation for Healthcare Management since 2016. He also serves as the Program Chair of 2019 IEEE International Conference on Automation Science and Engineering.
Dr. Li is an IEEE Fellow and Distinguished Lecturer in robotics and automation. He received the NSF CAREER Award (2010-2016), the IEEE Robotics and Automation Early Career Award (2006) , and multiple Best Paper Awards from IEEE Transactions, IIE Transactions, and many flagship conferences. His primary research interests are in design, analysis, and control of production and healthcare delivery systems. His research has been supported by NSF, DOE, NIST, PCORI, AHRQ, industry and healthcare organizations.
Both manufacturing and healthcare delivery systems have significant importance to economy and society. In addition to manufacturing systems, referred to as Industry 4.0, there have been growing interests in smart and interconnected healthcare systems, where we introduce the notion of Healthcare 4.0. In this talk, we will present the lessons we learned and results we obtained during the journey from manufacturing system research to healthcare delivery system study. We will address the evolution of Industry 4.0 and Healthcare 4.0, discuss the similarities and differences between production systems and healthcare delivery systems, and introduce the difficulties and opportunities. Next, a brief description of recent studies carried out at the Production and Service Systems Lab in University of Wisconsin-Madison will be described. Finally, we plan to discuss the challenges and future directions in smart and interconnected manufacturing and healthcare systems research.
