Machine learning and data mining are inseparably connected with uncertainty. The observable data for learning is usually imprecise,
incomplete or noisy. Uncertainty Modeling for Data Mining: A Label Semantics Approach introduces 'label semantics', a fuzzy-logic-based
theory for modeling uncertainty. Several new data mining algorithms based on label semantics are proposed and tested on real-world
datasets. A prototype interpretation of label semantics and new prototype-based data mining algorithms are also discussed.
This book offers a valuable resource for postgraduates, researchers and other professionals in the fields of data mining,
fuzzy computing and uncertainty reasoning.
