Data Mining introduces in clear and simple ways how to use existing data mining methods to obtain effective solutions for a variety of management and engineering design problems.
Data Mining is organised into two parts: the first provides a focused introduction to data mining and the second goes into greater depth on subjects such as customer analysis. It covers almost all managerial activities of a company, including:
• supply chain design,
• product development,
• manufacturing system design,
• product quality control, and
• preservation of privacy.
Incorporating recent developments of data mining that have made it possible to deal with management and engineering design problems with greater efficiency and efficacy, Data Mining presents a number of state-of-the-art topics. It will be an informative source of information for researchers, but will also be a useful reference work for industrial and managerial practitioners.
Artificial Intelligence: Modern Approach Integrates state-of-the-art AI techniques into intelligent agent designs, using examples and exercises to lead the reader from simple reactive agents to full knowledge-based agents with natural language capabilities. Covers areas that are sometimes under-emphasized--reasoning under uncertainty, learning, natural language, vision and robotics--and...
Fractal Geometry: Mathematical Foundations and Applications An accessible introduction to fractals, useful as a text or reference. Part I is concerned with the general theory of fractals and their geometry, covering dimensions and their methods of calculation, plus the local form of fractals and their projections and intersections. Part II contains examples of fractals drawn from a wide variety of areas in... Foundations of Dependable Computing: System Implementation Foundations of Dependable Computing: System Implementation, explores the system infrastructure needed to support the various paradigms of Paradigms for Dependable Applications. Approaches to implementing support mechanisms and to incorporating additional appropriate levels of fault detection and fault tolerance at the processor, network, and... RFID-Enabled Sensor Design and Applications (Integrated Microsystems)
Radio frequency identification (RFID) is gaining in popularity, especially as we find ourselves in this communications age and headed towards a ubiquitous computing world. Automatic identification systems become an important aspect not just in today’s technology but also as part of our daily life. We need RFID in our cars,...
