Book Content Description
Information is paramount to the world’s economy, particularly in the healthcare sector. This market entails intense data, medical epidemiologic sets, Internet browsing records, surveys, complex engineering models, and so on.
Technology nowadays makes it easy, inexpensive, and ubiquitous to obtain, observe, and measure several types of variables via the Cloud. This quest for knowledge prompts the data dimensionality, which calls for more sophisticated and efficient information strategies.
Health science and biology are very complex fields fully embedded in information technology, but the associated processes are much too intricate to be faithfully modeled. It is not easy to extract knowledge starting from raw data, and it is also expensive.
Artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare (AIH) has been the primary concern to develop expert systems aimed for diagnostic and decision-making in knowledge acquisition, representation, reasoning, and explanation.
Many healthcare facilities (HFs) have data acquisition, monitoring, and storage systems integrated into larger-scale information systems. This extensive amount of information and databases stemming from medical applications cause hinder analysis and decision making. Hence, there is a need to develop better tools for accessing/storing/analyzing knowledge while effectively using multimodal data. These necessities become essential in the healthcare realm as decision-making relies on knowledge from multidisciplinary areas. This book intends to provide computational methods for intelligent health data analysis to narrow the gap between data gathering and data comprehension with applications in medicine, health care, biology, pharmacology, and related areas.
Intelligent Data Analysis (IDA) expedites healthcare analyses and applications. IDA employs specialized statistical, pattern recognition, machine learning (ML), data abstraction, and visualization tools for analysis of data and discovery of mechanisms that created them. Healthcare data typically involve many records/variables, subtle interactions between entities, or a combination of all factors.
Engineering, computing science, and ML empower data analysis tasks. The IDA central concept is extracting knowledge from too much data, with a vast amount of variables, data that represents very complex, nonlinear, real-life problems. Moreover, IDA can help to start from the raw data, coping with prediction tasks without knowing the theoretical description of the underlying process, classification tasks of new events, or modeling unknown processes. Classification, prediction, and modeling are the cornerstones brought in by IDA.
This book focuses on AIH methods and tools to bridge data gathering and data comprehension. Emphasis will also be given to problem solving within HFs to handle the analysis of patient records, data warehousing, intelligent alarming, competent monitoring, and so on. In medicine, overcoming this gap is particularly crucial since medical decision-making needs comprehension of healthcare data regularities and trends. This book tackles different IDA approaches from a practical point of view.
This edited volume caters to healthcare/biology stakeholders, computer scientists, agronomical specialists, and engineers who work with large amounts of data to extract some knowledge to integrate with previous experience for prediction, classification, or modeling. The practical approach helps to foster innovation and to cope with challenging problems. Graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in engineering, mathematics, medicine, business, administration, or biology can use this book for a new point of view in solving real, practical problems when underlying processes are not transparent.
