First edited book presenting next generation distributed and other emergent collaborative data technologies
For collective and computational intelligence in a unified manner
Describe the incorporation of various next generation data technologies such as data grids and Web 2.0 to collective computational intelligence
Written by experts in the field
This book focuses on next generation data technologies in support of collective and computational intelligence. The book brings various next generation data technologies together to capture, integrate, analyze, mine, annotate and visualize distributed data – made available from various community users – in a meaningful and collaborative for the organization manner. A unique perspective on collective computational intelligence is offered by embracing both theory and strategies fundamentals such as data clustering, graph partitioning, collaborative decision making, self-adaptive ant colony, swarm and evolutionary agents. It also covers emerging and next generation technologies in support of collective computational intelligence such as Web 2.0 social networks, semantic web for data annotation, knowledge representation and inference, data privacy and security, and enabling distributed and collaborative paradigms such as P2P, Grid and Cloud Computing due to the geographically dispersed and distributed nature of the data.
The book aims to cover in a comprehensive manner the combinatorial effort of utilizing and integrating various next generations collaborative and distributed data technologies for computational intelligence in various scenarios. The book also distinguishes itself by assessing whether utilization and integration of next generation data technologies can assist in the identification of new opportunities, which may also be strategically fit for purpose.
