Abstract

A succession of data-bases, Advanced Information Processing (AIP) and Intelligent Decision-Making Technologies (IDT) have evolved rapidly over the past five decades. This cumulative evolution of Intelligent Decision Support Systems (IDSSs) has served to stimulate industrial activity and enhanced the lives of most people that the modern world. This publication highlights a series of current contributions to enhance the collective body of knowledge. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Computational Intelligence (CI) techniques continue to be successfully employed to generate human-like decision-making, while simultaneously providing greater access to information to solve data intensive problems. This book documents innovative contributions that represent advances in Knowledge-Based and Intelligent Information and Engineering Systems. New research recognises that society is familiar with modern AIP and increasingly expect richer IDT systems. Today there is a growing reliance on automatically processing information into knowledge with less human input. Society has already digitised its past and continues to progressively automate knowledge management for the future and increasingly expect to access this information using mobile devices. This book seeks to inform and enhance the exposure of research on intelligent systems and intelligence technologies that utilize novel and leading-edge techniques to improve decision-making. Each chapter concentrates on the theory, design, development, implementation, testing or evaluation of IDT techniques or applications. These approaches have the potential to support decision making in the areas of management, international business, finance, accounting, marketing, healthcare, production, networks, traffic management, crisis response, human interfaces and, military applications. All fourteen chapters represent a broad spread of topics across the domain and highlight how research is being realised to benefit society. Students, professionals and interested observers within the knowledge-based and intelligent information management domain will benefit from the diversity and richness of the content.
