Book Description

This book focuses on automated analytical techniques for healthcare applications used to extract knowledge from a large amount of data. It brings together a variety of different aspects of the healthcare system and aids in the decision-making processes for healthcare professionals.

Knowledge Modelling and Big Data Analytics in Healthcare: Advances and Applications connects four contemporary areas of research rarely brought together in one book: artificial intelligence, big data analytics, knowledge modelling, and healthcare. It presents state-of-the-art research from the healthcare sector, including research on medical imaging, healthcare analysis, and the applications of artificial intelligence in drug discovery.

This book is intended for data scientists, academicians, and industry professionals in the healthcare sector.
