Call for Chapters: Data Preprocessing, Active Learning & Cost Perceptive Approaches for Resolving Data Imbalance: Submit by Dec 25: Expired

About the Book

From the last two decades, researchers are looking at the imbalanced data learning as the prominent research area. The majority of critical real-world application areas like finance, health, network, news, online advertisement, social network media and weather are having the imbalanced data and emphasize the research necessary for real-time implications of precise fraud/defaulter detection, rare disease/reaction prediction, network intrusion detection, fake news detection, fraud advertisement detection, cyberbullying identification, disaster events prediction, etc.

The machine learning algorithms are based on the heuristic of equally distributed balanced data and are providing the biased result towards the majority data class, which is not acceptable at all, as the imbalanced data is omnipresent in real life scenarios and forcing researchers to learn from imbalanced data equally for foolproof application design.

The imbalanced data is multifaceted and demands new perception to explore the knowledge using novelty at sampling approach of data preprocessing, active learning approach and cost perceptive approach to resolve data imbalance.

Target Audience

Target Audience are researchers, faculties, engineers, and students with a background in computer science, engineering, industry people. This book can be used as a textbook or reference book for graduate and post graduate level courses like data science, machine learning, data mining, and pattern mining to deal with the problem of learning from imbalanced data.

Also, this book can be utilized for multidisciplinary research scholars as it will provide the great source of literature to understand imbalanced data and its impact, novel approaches and the future research directions. The book can help the beginner and intermediate researchers to re-engineer their way of thinking for the solution approach. The readers will be benefited by having the clear vision of imbalanced data characteristics and learning using out of the box solution.
