Description & Coverage

As the applications of data mining, the non-trivial extraction of implicit information in a data set, have expanded in recent years, so has the need for techniques that are tolerable to imprecision, uncertainty, and approximation.

Intelligent Soft Computation and Evolving Data Mining: Integrating Advanced Technologies is a compendium that addresses this need. It integrates contrasting techniques of conventional hard computing and soft computing to exploit the tolerance for imprecision, uncertainty, partial truth, and approximation to achieve tractability, robustness and low-cost solution. This book provides a reference to researchers, practitioners, and students in both soft computing and data mining communities, forming a foundation for the development of the field.


The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Artificial Clonal Selection
  • Biomedical data mining
  • Cat Swarm Optimization
  • Computational Intelligence
  • Data Mining
  • Fuzzy Functional Dependencies
  • Fuzzy Neural Network
  • Hybrid Evolutionary Learning Algorithms
  • Power System Load Frequency Control using
  • Risk-Management Models
Reviews and Testimonials

While integrating advanced technologies clearly falls in the emerging category because of recency, it is now beginning to reach popularity and more books on this topic becomes desirable. It is hoped that this book will provide a reference to researchers, practitioners, students in both soft computing and data mining communities and others, for the benefit of more creative ideas.
