Fuzzy System and Data Mining
Proceedings of FSDM 2015
# of pages516
Fuzzy logic is widely used in machine control. The term ‘fuzzy’ refers to the fact that the logic involved can deal with concepts that cannot be expressed as either ‘true’ or ‘false’, but rather as ‘partially true’. Fuzzy set theory is very suitable for modeling the uncertain duration in process simulation, as well as defining the fuzzy goals and fuzzy constraints of decision-making. It has many applications in industry, engineering and social sciences.
This book presents the proceedings of the 2015 International Conference on Fuzzy System and Data Mining (FSDM2015), held in Shanghai, China, in December 2015. The application domain covers geography, biology, economics, medicine, the energy industry, social science, logistics, transport, industrial and production engineering, and computer science. The papers presented at the conference focus on topics such as system diagnosis, rule induction, process simulation/control, and decision-making. They include papers on solving practical problems with intelligent algorithms; statistical analysis; classification and clustering; and association rule learning. They also reflect the frontier in data mining research and address the challenges posed to data analytics research by the increasingly large datasets yielded by many application domains, together with new types of unstructured data.
The book provides an overview of the ways in which fuzzy theory and data mining principles are applied in various fields, and will be of interest to all those who work in either the theory or practice of fuzzy systems and data mining.
