Data Preprocessing in Data Mining

Intelligent Systems Reference Library

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.

Fuzzy Sets and Their Extensions: Representation, Aggregation and Models Intelligent Systems from Decision Making to Data Mining, Web Intelligence and Computer Vision Fuzzy sets are now more than 40 years old, and have come of age. However, the development of fuzzy set theory at the theoretical level, and its successful appli- tions to science and technology have often run in isolation. Only a little part of the theoretical apparatus was effectively used in past applications. The most prominent ones, namely fuzzy rule-based modeling and control engineering, were directly - spired from a seminal paper by Lot? Zadeh in 1973, suggesting how to use expert knowledge for synthetizing control laws, and from the ?rst experiments published by Abe Mamdani. Later in the eighties, when spectacular applications were bl- soming in Japan, fuzzy rule-based systems were systematized and simpli?ed by Michio Sugeno and colleagues, and became a basic approach to non-linear system modeling and control, soon hybridized with neural networks in the nineties. Thus fuzzy systems signi?cantly contributed to the raise of computational intelligence, and a lot of learning techniques for the construction of (supposedly interpretable) fuzzy models from data were developed under the ?ag of soft computing. Even if this area was quite successful, it is patent that the role, in the success of fuzzy logic, of new fuzzy set-related concepts developed quite at the same time in themathematicalnicheofthefuzzyset communitywaslimited.
