Data analysis forms the basis of many forms of research ranging from the scientific to the governmental. With the advent of machine intelligence and neural networks, extracting, modeling, and approaching data has been unimpeachably altered. These changes, seemingly small, affect the way societies organize themselves, deliver services, or interact with each other.

Intelligent Techniques for Data Analysis in Diverse Settings addresses the specialized requirements of data analysis in a comprehensive way. This title contains a comprehensive overview of the most innovative recent approaches borne from intelligent techniques such as neural networks, rough sets, fuzzy sets, and metaheuristics. Combining new data analysis technologies, applications, emerging trends, and case studies, this publication reviews the intelligent, technological, and organizational aspects of the field. This book is ideally designed for IT professionals and students, data analysis specialists, healthcare providers, and policy makers.

[...]. Fifteen chapters examine a variety of approaches to Intelligent Data Analysis (IDA), exploring such techniques and concepts as wavelet transform, heuristic and metaheuristic algorithms, grey modeling, image mining, fuzzy logic and much more. Some chapters showcase the practical applications of these methods. Chapter three, for example, explores the elements that affect housing demand in Turkey via grey theory, while chapter five tests several IDA methods in search of the optimal forecast of electrical loads. Applications in the healthcare, Internet, and financial sectors are also profiled in this volume, while the specific problems of shelf space management, signal processing, facility location, and supplier selection, among others, are addressed.
This volume definitely benefits from the inclusion of a preface, which works to establish the volume’s organization as well as its highly specialized mission. References are listed at the end of each chapter and compiled again at the end of the book, alongside brief contributor biographies and an index. IT professionals, educators, and students, in addition to data analysis specialists throughout a variety of fields, would be interested in this material.
