Concept data analysis differs from statistical data analysis in that the emphasis is on recognising and generalising the structure of symbolic data through a mathematical representation termed a concept lattice. Thanks to its simplicity, elegance and versatility, concept data analysis can effectively support various kinds of content management tasks using different or heterogeneous types of data.
- Provides a comprehensive treatment of the full range of techniques developed for concept data analysis covering creation, maintenance, display and manipulation of concept lattices
- Presents application areas such as information retrieval and mining from text and web data as well as rule mining from structured data
- Features two detailed case studies; exploring the content of the ACM Digital Library using an interface that integrates multiple search functionalities; and mining web retrieval results through the system CREDO, a version of which is available on–line for testing
Concept Data Analysis: Theory & Applications is essential for researchers active in information processing and data mining as well as industry practitioners who are interested in creating a commercial product for concept data analysis or developing content management applications. Computer science students will also find it invaluable.
