Data Preprocessing in Data Mining

Free sample

Data Preprocessing for Data Mining addresses one of the most important issues within the well-known Knowledge Discovery from Data process. Data directly taken from the source will likely have inconsistencies, errors or most importantly, it is not ready to be considered for a data mining process. Furthermore, the increasing amount of data in recent science, industry and business applications, calls to the requirement of more complex tools to analyze it. Thanks to data preprocessing, it is possible to convert the impossible into possible, adapting the data to fulfill the input demands of each data mining algorithm. Data preprocessing includes the data reduction techniques, which aim at reducing the complexity of the data, detecting or removing irrelevant and noisy elements from the data.

This book is intended to review the tasks that fill the gap between the data acquisition from the source and the data mining process. A comprehensive look from a practical point of view, including basic concepts and surveying the techniques proposed in the specialized literature, is given.Each chapter is a stand-alone guide to a particular data preprocessing topic, from basic concepts and detailed descriptions of classical algorithms, to an incursion of an exhaustive catalog of recent developments. The in-depth technical descriptions make this book suitable for technical professionals, researchers, senior undergraduate and graduate students in data science, computer science and engineering.

Foundations of Computational Intelligence Volume 2: Approximation Reasoning: Theoretical Foundations and Applications Human reasoning usually is very approximate and involves various types of - certainties. Approximate reasoning is the computational modelling of any part of the process used by humans to reason about natural phenomena or to solve real world problems. The scope of this book includes fuzzy sets, Dempster-Shafer theory, multi-valued logic, probability, random sets, and rough set, near set and hybrid intelligent systems. Besides research articles and expository papers on t- ory and algorithms of approximation reasoning, papers on numerical experiments and real world applications were also encouraged. This Volume comprises of 12 chapters including an overview chapter providing an up-to-date and state-of-the research on the applications of Computational Intelligence techniques for - proximation reasoning. The Volume is divided into 2 parts: Part-I: Approximate Reasoning – Theoretical Foundations Part-II: Approximate Reasoning – Success Stories and Real World Applications Part I on Approximate Reasoning – Theoretical Foundations contains four ch- ters that describe several approaches of fuzzy and Para consistent annotated logic approximation reasoning. In Chapter 1, “Fuzzy Sets, Near Sets, and Rough Sets for Your Computational Intelligence Toolbox” by Peters considers how a user might utilize fuzzy sets, near sets, and rough sets, taken separately or taken together in hybridizations as part of a computational intelligence toolbox. In multi-criteria decision making, it is necessary to aggregate (combine) utility values corresponding to several criteria (parameters).
Seth Stephens-Davidowitz
Foreword by Steven Pinker

Blending the informed analysis of The Signal and the Noise with the instructive iconoclasm of Think Like a Freak, a fascinating, illuminating, and witty look at what the vast amounts of information now instantly available to us reveals about ourselves and our world—provided we ask the right questions.

By the end of an average day in the early twenty-first century, human beings searching the internet will amass eight trillion gigabytes of data. This staggering amount of information—unprecedented in history—can tell us a great deal about who we are—the fears, desires, and behaviors that drive us, and the conscious and unconscious decisions we make. From the profound to the mundane, we can gain astonishing knowledge about the human psyche that less than twenty years ago, seemed unfathomable.

Everybody Lies offers fascinating, surprising, and sometimes laugh-out-loud insights into everything from economics to ethics to sports to race to sex, gender and more, all drawn from the world of big data. What percentage of white voters didn’t vote for Barack Obama because he’s black? Does where you go to school effect how successful you are in life? Do parents secretly favor boy children over girls? Do violent films affect the crime rate? Can you beat the stock market? How regularly do we lie about our sex lives and who’s more self-conscious about sex, men or women?

Investigating these questions and a host of others, Seth Stephens-Davidowitz offers revelations that can help us understand ourselves and our lives better. Drawing on studies and experiments on how we really live and think, he demonstrates in fascinating and often funny ways the extent to which all the world is indeed a lab. With conclusions ranging from strange-but-true to thought-provoking to disturbing, he explores the power of this digital truth serum and its deeper potential—revealing biases deeply embedded within us, information we can use to change our culture, and the questions we’re afraid to ask that might be essential to our health—both emotional and physical. All of us are touched by big data everyday, and its influence is multiplying. Everybody Lies challenges us to think differently about how we see it and the world.

Seis macabros asesinatos rituales, el último: Ménage à Trois. Carlos, agente especial del CNI, decide involucrarse en contra de la opinión de sus jefes. El camino allanado por la medicina forense le llevará inicialmente hasta una peligrosa secta de carácter global. Pero esto será sólo el principio? Junto con la cubana Velli González, agente especial del FBI, se verá involucrado en una inquietante trama internacional que terminará uniendo sus destinos. Un comando de élite de las fuerzas especiales de los Navy Seals ha localizado y asesinado a Osama Bin Laden. Desde el corazón del mundo islámico, se prepara el mayor golpe jamás realizado con el fin de establecer un nuevo orden mundial. De los mil quinientos millones de musulmanes que habitan el mundo sólo un 15% es de origen chií. Si Irán no actúa rápido perderá la hegemonía de la yihad mundial a manos de sus enemigos ancestrales, los sunníes del Estado Islámico. El califato y sus banderas negras se extienden día a día a golpe de conquistas. Los ayatolás tendrán que utilizar toda su inteligencia para vencer a la vez a sus dos enemigos. Sunníes y Occidente. Sus pretensiones, borrar de la faz de la tierra al Estado de Israel por medio de un virus letal, y someter a Occidente bajo el chantaje de provocar una pandemia imparable a partir de la recuperación del mayor asesino en serie de la historia de la humanidad, la Gripe Española de 1918, «Spanish Influenza». En la era de la globalización del bien y del mal su maquiavélico plan necesitará de la implicación de estados, multinacionales, grupos islamistas y sobre todo: Al Qaeda y sus durmientes. Una trepidante partida de ajedrez, entre chiíes y sunníes, entre yihadistas y cruzados, con la geopolítica como tablero y la navidad cristiana como marco. El Rey cruzado se encuentra amenazado de sufrir jaque mate, si perece, los hijos de Alá gobernarán el mundo.
