Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The emergence of Large Language Models (LLMs) such as GPT-4 and Llama 2 represents a significant milestone in the capabilities of text generation, chat assistance, text classification, and reasoning. These models are not only limited to consumer and enterprise applications, with ChatGPT and GitHub Copilot being examples, but also show great promise in industrial sectors such as energy, manufacturing, finance, healthcare, and logistics. Understanding the tasks that LLMs can perform and the types of data that are suitable for their training is critical to realizing their potential in industrial applications.

This Special Issue aims to bring together the latest research and methodologies focusing on the use of LLMs in industrial settings. We invite contributions from academics, industry experts, researchers, and practitioners in the form of original research papers, reviews, and case studies that present state-of-the-art techniques, novel algorithms, and practical applications. Submissions may cover a range of topics including, but not limited to, task-specific applications of LLMs in different industries, data modalities for training, human–machine collaboration, the limitations and challenges of LLM-based solutions, and ethical considerations in the use of LLMs. By bringing together these diverse perspectives, this Special Issue aims to advance the state of the art and explore new frontiers in the application of LLMs in industrial domains.
