More About This Textbook


The present "Vol 1: Techniques and Applications" of the "Handbook on Decision Making" presents a useful collection of AI techniques , as well as other complementary methodologies, that are useful for the design and development of intelligent decision support systems. Application examples of how these intelligent decision support systems can be utilized to help tackle a variety of real-world problems in different domains, such as business, management, manufacturing, transportation and food industries, and biomedicine, are presented. The handbook includes twenty condensed chapters, which are divided into two parts, i.e., (i) modelling and design techniques for intelligent decision support systems; and (ii) reviews and applications of intelligent decision support systems.
