    This book studies data, analytics, and intelligence using Boolean structure. Chapters dive into the theories, foundations, technologies, and methods of data, analytics and intelligence.

    The primary aim of this book is to convey the theories and technologies of data, analytics, and intelligence with applications to readers based on systematic generalization and specialization. Sun uses the Boolean structure to deconstruct all books and papers related to data, analytics, intelligence and reorganize them to reshape the world of big data, data analytics, analytics intelligence, data science, and artificial intelligence. Multi-industry applications in business, management and decision making are provided. Cutting-edge theories, technologies, and applications of data, analytics, and intelligence and their integration are also explored. Overall, this book provides original insights on sharing computing, insight computing, platform computing, a calculus of intelligent analytics and intelligent business analytics, meta computing, data analyticizing, DDPP (Descriptive, diagnostic, predictive, and prescriptive) computing and analytics.

     A useful resource with multi-industry applications for scientists, engineers, data analysts, educators and university students.

    "Artificial intelligence and big data analytics are moving targets because new research is published daily – the benefit of this book is it will remain valid because it covers the philosophy, the Boolean logic of why decision-makers should use software in strategic planning."

    Kenneth David Strang, Business School Professor, University of the Cumberlands, Program Director, W3-Research, USA
