Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

“Data analysis and machine learning are potential research areas at the intersection of computer science (including artificial intelligence) and mathematical sciences (including both mathematics and statistics). This book contains a good collection of papers in these areas, describing their application in areas such as marketing and bioinformatics. … It is surely a must have book for any scientific library and indispensable for the scientific researcher.” (Soubhik Chakraborthy, ACM Computing Reviews, February, 2010)
