Unsupervised and Semi-Supervised Learning

Unsupervised and Semi-Supervised Learning
7 Volumes | 2019 - 2020


Springer’s Unsupervised and Semi-Supervised Learning book series covers the latest theoretical and practical developments in unsupervised and semi-supervised learning. Titles -- including monographs, contributed works, professional books, and textbooks -- tackle various issues surrounding the proliferation of massive amounts of unlabeled data in many application domains and how unsupervised learning algorithms can automatically discover interesting and useful patterns in such data. The books discuss how these algorithms have found numerous applications including pattern recognition, market basket analysis, web mining, social network analysis, information retrieval, recommender systems, market research, intrusion detection, and fraud detection. Books also discuss semi-supervised algorithms, which can make use of both labeled and unlabeled data and can be useful in application domains where unlabeled data is abundant, yet it is possible to obtain a small amount of labeled data.

Topics of interest in include:

- Unsupervised/Semi-Supervised Discretization

- Unsupervised/Semi-Supervised Feature Extraction

- Unsupervised/Semi-Supervised Feature Selection

- Association Rule Learning

- Semi-Supervised Classification

- Semi-Supervised Regression

- Unsupervised/Semi-Supervised Clustering

- Unsupervised/Semi-Supervised Anomaly/Novelty/Outlier Detection

- Evaluation of Unsupervised/Semi-Supervised Learning Algorithms

- Applications of Unsupervised/Semi-Supervised Learning

While the series focuses on unsupervised and semi-supervised learning, outstanding contributions in the field of supervised learning will also be considered. The intended audience includes students, researchers, and practitioners.
