Book Description

With the growing interest in and use of big data analytics in many industries and in many research fields around the globe, this new volume addresses the need for a comprehensive resource on the core concepts of big data analytics along with the tools, techniques, and methodologies. The book gives the why and the how of big data analytics in an organized and straightforward manner, using both theoretical and practical approaches.

The book’s authors have organized the contents in a systematic manner, starting with an introduction and overview of big data analytics and then delving into pre-processing methods, feature selection methods and algorithms, big data streams, and big data classification. Such terms and methods as swarm intelligence, data mining, the bat algorithm and genetic algorithms, big data streams, and many more are discussed. The authors explain how deep learning and machine learning along with other methods and tools are applied in big data analytics.

The last section of the book presents a selection of illustrative case studies that show examples of the use of data analytics in industries such as health care, business, education, and social media.

Research Practitioner’s Handbook on Big Data Analytics will be a valuable addition to the libraries of practitioners in data collection in many industries along with research scholars and faculty in the domain of big data analytics. The book can also serve as a handy textbook for courses in data collection, data mining, and big data analytics.
