About this book
One of the grand challenges in our digital world are the large, complex, and often weakly structured data sets and massive amounts of unstructured information. This “big data” challenge is most evident in biomedical informatics: The trend toward precision medicine has resulted in an explosion in the amount of biomedical data sets generated. Despite the fact that human experts are very good at pattern recognition in three dimensions or less, most of the data are high-dimensional, which makes manual analysis often impossible and neither the medical doctor nor the biomedical researcher can memorize all these facts. A synergistic combination of the methodologies and approaches of two fields offer ideal conditions for unraveling these problems: human–computer interaction (HCI) and knowledge discovery/data mining (KDD), with the goal of supporting human capabilities with machine learning.
This state-of-the-art survey is an output of the HCI-KDD expert network and features 19 carefully selected and reviewed papers related to seven hot and promising research areas: (1) data integration, data pre-processing, and data mapping; (2) data mining algorithms; (3) graph-based data mining; (4) entropy-based data mining; (5) topological data mining; (6) visualization; (7) privacy, data protection, safety, and security.
