On 19 September 2022, the first workshop on AI for Manufacturing (AI4M Workshop) took place at ECML-PKDD, the European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice for Knowledge Discovery in Databases. The workshop brought together researchers and practitioners, from academia and industry, contributing their perspectives. This special section includes five articles in which Artificial Intelligence methods are used to address real problems in the manufacturing industry, ranging from the supply chain, to production, to quality insurance, and predictive maintenance. In this introduction, we present a high-level overview of the current state of the area: observed trends and the main open challenges. This overview is based on these papers, the keynote presentation, the panel discussion, and the discussion that emerged during the workshop.
