15 years of the International Journal of Intelligent Decision Technologies (IDT): Reflection from the Editors

The inspiration for IDT grew out of conversations between Professor/Dr. Gloria Phillips-Wren and Professor/Dr. Lakhmi Jain at the Knowledge Engineering Systems (KES) International annual conferences. The mission of KES is stated as “dissemination, transfer, sharing and brokerage of knowledge” to address knowledge-intensive subjects. As a large professional scientific community, KES sponsors a broad spectrum of publications and activities for research scientists, academics, engineers and practitioners. Research in intelligent agents and intelligent systems in the timeframe of 2004–2006 at KES conferences was focused on algorithms and technical specifications. During the same general time period, the technology was becoming mature enough to be implemented into real-world decision support systems (DSS) for previously intractable problems.

Special issue on Intelligent Biomedical Data Analysis and Processing

Guest editors: Deepak Gupta, Oscar Castillo and Ashish Khanna

Today, humankind lives in the age of Information (and) Technology. Information is the key, the power and the engine that moves the world economy. The world is dependent on market data, medical/epidemiologic sets, Internet browsing records, geological survey data, complex engineering models, and so on. Health Sciences are highly dependent on Information Technology. Health Sciences and Biology are very complex fields and have covered a long distance since ancient times. In the early eighties, Artificial Intelligence in Medicine was a primary research area while developing medical expert systems in specialized medical domains to support diagnostic decision-making. The main problems addressed at this early stage of expert system research were concerned with knowledge acquisition, knowledge representation, reasoning, and explanation. Nowdays, there are many modern hospitals and health care institutions, which are well equipped with monitoring and other advanced data collection devices. The need for knowledge on the domain or the data analysis process becomes essential in biomedical applications, as medical decision making needs to be supported by arguments based on basic medical and pharmacological knowledge. The new tool for analyses of biomedical applications is “Intelligent Data Analysis (IDA)”.

Innovations in Big Data Mining and Embedded Knowledge
Adhikari, Jhimli

This is a review of a book that discusses knowledge discovery using data mining and knowledge embedding through models. A number of scheme are reported in the book to explain how data mining and discovered embedded knowledge can be beneficial to social organizations, domestic sphere and ICT market. Each chapter of the book presents a unique problem of data mining philosophies from an embedded point of view. It will help researchers to understand the current status of big data mining and embedded knowledge, discover new research opportunities and gain more information about this field.

“Innovations in Big Data Mining and Embedded Knowledge” by Anna Esposito (Editor), Antonietta M. Esposito (Editor), Lakhmi C. Jain (Editor), 1st edition (16 July 2019), Pages 276, ISBN 978-3-030-15938-2, Vol. 159 in Springer Book Series Intelligent Systems Reference Library
