Introduction to Data Mining and its Applications (Studies in Computational Intelligence)

Buy
An enormous proliferation of databases in almost every area of human endeavor has created a great demand for new, powerful tools for turning data into useful, task-oriented knowledge. In the efforts to satisfy this need, researchers have been exploring ideas and methods developed in machine learning, pattern recognition, statistical data analysis, data visualization, neural nets, etc. These efforts have led to the emergence of a new research area, frequently called data mining and knowledge discovery.

The current Information Age is characterized by an extraordinary growth of data that are being generated and stored about all kinds of human endeavors. An increasing proportion of these data is recorded in the form of computer databases, so that the computer technology may easily access it. The availability of very large volumes of such data has created a problem of how to extract form useful, task-oriented knowledge.

Data analysis techniques that have been traditionally used for such tasks include regression analysis, cluster analysis, numerical taxonomy, multidimensional analysis, other multivariate statistical methods, stochastic models, time series analysis, nonlinear estimation techniques, and others. These techniques have been widely used for solving many practical problems. They are, however, primarily oriented toward the extraction of quantitative and statistical data characteristics, and as such have inherent limitations.

For example, a statistical analysis can determine covariances and correlations between variables in data. It cannot, however, characterize the dependencies at an abstract, conceptual level and procedure, a casual explanation of reasons why these dependencies exist. Nor can it develop a justification of these relationships in the form of higher-level logic-style descriptions and laws.

A statistical data analysis can determine the central tendency and variance of given factors, and a regression analysis can fit a curve to a set of datapoints. These techniques cannot, however, produce a qualitative description of the regularities and determine their dependence of factors not explicitly provided in the data, nor can they draw an analogy between the discovered regularity and regularity in another domain.

Computer Vision Analysis of Image Motion by Variational Methods (Springer Topics in Signal Processing)
Computer Vision Analysis of Image Motion by Variational Methods (Springer Topics in Signal Processing)

This book presents a unified view of image motion analysis under the variational framework. Variational methods, rooted in physics and mechanics, but appearing in many other domains, such as statistics, control, and computer vision, address a problem from an optimization standpoint, i.e., they formulate it as the optimization of an objective...

The Definitive Guide to Interwoven TeamSite (Definitive Guides)

Adigital flood is upon us. Content inundates us. It begins as bits of content swirling everywhere—a document, an image, a written corporate procedure, a web page, or an email. The binary mist mixes, combines, and rains down on us. It pools in laptops, on desktops, and in server farms. Creeks and streams meander to corporate reservoirs....
