Advances in Mining Complex Big Data: From Foundations to Real-World Artificial Intelligence
Big Data is an emerging paradigm, characterized by complex information that is beyond the processing capability of conventional tools. Traditional data analytics methods are commonly used in many applications, such as text classification and image recognition, and these data are often required to be represented as vectors for analysis purposes. While there are many real-world data objects that contain rich structure information, such as chemical compounds in bio-pharmacy, brain regions in brain networks and users in social networks. The simple feature-vector representation inherently loses the structure information of the objects. In reality, objects may have complicated characteristics, depending on how the objects are assessed and characterized. Data may also come from heterogeneous domains, such as traditional tabular-based data, sequential patterns, social networks, time series information, or semi-structured data. Processing, mining, and learning complex data refers to an advanced study area of data mining and knowledge discovery that concerns the development and analysis of approaches for discovering patterns and learning models for data with complex structures (e.g., time series, sequences, graphs, and bag constrained data). These kinds of data are commonly encountered in many artificial intelligence applications, such as brain science. Complex data poses new challenges for current research in data mining and knowledge discovery as new processing, mining, and learning methods are required.
