Recent research in Intelligent Decision Technologies
Edited outcome of the Intelligent Decision Technologies conference, IDT 2011, held on July 20-22, 2011 in Piraeus, Greece
Written by leading experts in the field
Intelligent Decision Technologies (IDT) seeks an interchange of research on intelligent systems and intelligent technologies which enhance or improve decision making in industry, government and academia. The focus is interdisciplinary in nature, and includes research on all aspects of intelligent decision technologies, from fundamental development to the applied system. This volume represents leading research from the Third KES International Symposium on Intelligent Decision Technologies (KES IDT’11), hosted and organized by the University of Piraeus, Greece, in conjunction with KES International.
The symposium was concerned with theory, design, development, implementation, testing and evaluation of intelligent decision systems. Topics include decision making theory, intelligent agents, fuzzy logic, multi-agent systems, Bayesian networks, optimization, artificial neural networks, genetic algorithms, expert systems, decision support systems, geographic information systems, case-based reasoning, time series, knowledge management systems, rough sets, spatial decision analysis, and multi-criteria decision analysis. These technologies have the potential to revolutionize decision making in many areas of management, healthcare, international business, finance, accounting, marketing, military applications, ecommerce, network management, crisis response, building design, information retrieval, and disaster recovery for a better future.
