Robust Data Mining

Robust data mining coverXanthopoulos, Petros, Pardalos, Panos M., Trafalis, Theodore B.

Data uncertainty is a concept closely related with most real life applications that involve data collection and interpretation. Examples can be found in data acquired with biomedical instruments or other experimental techniques. Integration of robust optimization in the existing data mining techniques aim to create new algorithms resilient to error and noise.

This work encapsulates all the latest applications of robust optimization in data mining. This brief contains an overview of the rapidly growing field of robust data mining research field and presents  the most well known machine learning algorithms, their robust counterpart formulations and algorithms for attacking these problems.

This brief will appeal to theoreticians and data miners working in this field.

Data Mining for Biomarker Discovery

Pardalos, Panos M.; Xanthopoulos, Petros; Zervakis, Michalis (Eds.)

Data Mining for Biomarker Discovery is designed to motivate collaboration and discussion among various disciplines and will be of interest to students and researchers in engineering, computer science, applied mathematics, medicine, and anyone interested in the interdisciplinary application of data mining techniques. Biomarker discovery is an important area of biomedical research that can lead to significant breakthroughs in disease analysis and targeted therapy. Moreover, the discovery and management of new biomarkers is a challenging and attractive problem in the emerging field of biomedical informatics.

This volume is a collection of  state-of-the-art research from select participants of the “International Conference on Biomedical Data and Knowledge Mining: Towards Biomarker Discovery,” held July 7-9, 2010 in Chania, Greece. Contributions focus on biomarker data integration, information retrieval methods, and statistical machine learning techniques, all presented with new results, models, and algorithms.
