The first unified treatment of the interface between information theory and emerging topics in data science, written in a clear, tutorial style. Covering topics such as data acquisition, representation, analysis, and communication, it is ideal for graduate students and researchers in information theory, signal processing, and machine learning.
This book comprehensively covers the topic of data science. Data science is an umbrella term that encompasses data analytics, data mining, machine learning, and several other related disciplines. This book synthesizes both fundamental and advanced topics of a research area that has now reached maturity. The chapters of this book are organized into three sections: The first section is an introduction to data science. Starting from the basic concepts, the book will highlight the types of data, its use, its importance and issues that are normally faced in data analytics. Followed by discussion on wide range of applications of data science and widely used techniques in data science. The second section is devoted to the tools and techniques of data science. It consists of data pre-processing, feature selection, classification and clustering concepts as well as an introduction to text mining and opining mining. And finally, the third section of the book focuses on two programming languages commonly used for data science projects i.e. Python and R programming language. Although this book primarily serves as a textbook, it will also appeal to industrial practitioners and researchers due to its focus on applications and references. The book is suitable for both undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as those carrying out research in data science. It can be used as a textbook for undergraduate students in computer science, engineering and mathematics. It can also be accessible to undergraduate students from other areas with the adequate background. The more advanced chapters can be used by postgraduate researchers intending to gather a deeper theoretical understanding.
With the field of computational statistics growing rapidly, there is a need for capturing the advances and assessing their impact. Advances in simulation and graphical analysis also add to the pace of the statistical analytics field. Computational statistics play a key role in financial applications, particularly risk management and derivative pricing, biological applications including bioinformatics and computational biology, and computer network security applications that touch the lives of people. With high impacting areas such as these, it becomes important to dig deeper into the subject and explore the key areas and their progress in the recent past. Methodologies and Applications of Computational Statistics for Machine Intelligence serves as a guide to the applications of new advances in computational statistics. This text holds an accumulation of the thoughts of multiple experts together, keeping the focus on core computational statistics that apply to all domains. Covering topics including artificial intelligence, deep learning, and trend analysis, this book is an ideal resource for statisticians, computer scientists, mathematicians, lecturers, tutors, researchers, academic and corporate libraries, practitioners, professionals, students, and academicians.

This proceedings volume is a collection of peer reviewed papers presented at the 8th International Conference on Soft Methods in Probability and Statistics (SMPS 2016) held in Rome (Italy). The book is dedicated to Data science which aims at developing automated methods to analyze massive amounts of data and to extract knowledge from them. It shows how Data science employs various programming techniques and methods of data wrangling, data visualization, machine learning, probability and statistics. The soft methods proposed in this volume represent a collection of tools in these fields that can also be useful for data science.
This book describes current problems in data science and Big Data. Key topics are data classification, Graph Cut, the Laplacian Matrix, Google Page Rank, efficient algorithms, hardness of problems, different types of big data, geometric data structures, topological data processing, and various learning methods. For unsolved problems such as incomplete data relation and reconstruction, the book includes possible solutions and both statistical and computational methods for data analysis. Initial chapters focus on exploring the properties of incomplete data sets and partial-connectedness among data points or data sets. Discussions also cover the completion problem of Netflix matrix; machine learning method on massive data sets; image segmentation and video search. This book introduces software tools for data science and Big Data such MapReduce, Hadoop, and Spark. This book contains three parts. The first part explores the fundamental tools of data science. It includes basic graph theoretical methods, statistical and AI methods for massive data sets. In second part, chapters focus on the procedural treatment of data science problems including machine learning methods, mathematical image and video processing, topological data analysis, and statistical methods. The final section provides case studies on special topics in variational learning, manifold learning, business and financial data rec overy, geometric search, and computing models. Mathematical Problems in Data Science is a valuable resource for researchers and professionals working in data science, information systems and networks. Advanced-level students studying computer science, electrical engineering and mathematics will also find the content helpful.
This book gathers invited presentations from the 2nd Symposium of the ICSA- CANADA Chapter held at the University of Calgary from August 4-6, 2015. The aim of this Symposium was to promote advanced statistical methods in big-data sciences and to allow researchers to exchange ideas on statistics and data science and to embraces the challenges and opportunities of statistics and data science in the modern world. It addresses diverse themes in advanced statistical analysis in big-data sciences, including methods for administrative data analysis, survival data analysis, missing data analysis, high-dimensional and genetic data analysis, longitudinal and functional data analysis, the design and analysis of studies with response-dependent and multi-phase designs, time series and robust statistics, statistical inference based on likelihood, empirical likelihood and estimating functions. The editorial group selected 14 high-quality presentations from this successful symposium and invited the presenters to prepare a full chapter for this book in order to disseminate the findings and promote further research collaborations in this area. This timely book offers new methods that impact advanced statistical model development in big-data sciences.

"Info-metrics is a framework for rational inference on the basis of limited, or insufficient, information. It is the science of modeling, reasoning, and drawing inferences under conditions of noisy and insufficient information. Info-metrics has its roots in information theory (Shannon, 1948), Bernoulli's and Laplace's principle of insufficient reason (Bernoulli, 1713) and its offspring the principle of maximum entropy (Jaynes, 1957). It is an interdisciplinary framework situated at the intersection of information theory, statistical inference, and decision-making under uncertainty. Within a constrained optimization setup, info-metrics provides a simple way for modeling and understanding all types of systems and problems. It is a framework for processing the available information with minimal reliance on assumptions and information that cannot be validated. Quite often a model cannot be validated with finite data. Examples include biological, social and behavioral models, as well as models of cognition and knowledge. The info-metrics framework extends naturally for tackling these types of common problems"--

Ten papers were selected for poster presentations and are published in the ICDM Poster Proceeding Volume by ibai-publishing (www.ibai-publishing.org). In conjunction with ICDM four workshops were held on special hot applicati- oriented topics in data mining: Data Mining in Marketing DMM, Data Mining in LifeScience DMLS, the Workshop on Case-Based Reasoning for Multimedia Data CBR-MD, and the Workshop on Data Mining in Agriculture DMA. The Workshop on Data Mining in Agriculture ran for the first time this year. All workshop papers will be published in the workshop proceedings by ibai-publishing (www.ibai-publishing.org). Selected papers of CBR-MD will be published in a special issue of the international journal Transactions on Case-Based Reasoning (www.ibai-publishing.org/journal/cbr).
