With the advent of the Web along with the unprecedented amount of information available in electronic format, conceptual data analysis is more useful and practical than ever, because this technology addresses important limitations of the systems that currently support users in their quest for information. Concept Data Analysis: Theory & Applications is the first book that provides a comprehensive treatment of the full range of algorithms available for conceptual data analysis, spanning creation, maintenance, display and manipulation of concept lattices. The accompanying website allows you to gain a greater understanding of the principles covered in the book through actively working on the topics discussed. The three main areas explored are interactive mining of documents or collections of documents (including Web documents), automatic text ranking, and rule mining from structured data. The potentials of conceptual data analysis in the application areas being considered are further illustrated by two detailed case studies. Concept Data Analysis: Theory & Applications is essential for researchers active in information processing and management and industry practitioners who are interested in creating a commercial product for conceptual data analysis or developing content management applications.

Claudio Carpineto is the head of the Information mining group at Fondazione Ugo Bordoni, in Rome. He has published numerous articles on artificial intelligence. Giovanni Romano is the author of Concept Data Analysis: Theory and Applications, published by Wiley.
The advent of the Web, along with the unprecedented amount of data available in electronic format, has dramatically increased the need for tools that support the users in retrieving, understanding and mining the information and knowledge contained in such data. Concept data analysis differs from statistical data analysis in that the emphasis is on recognising and generalising the structure of symbolic data through a mathematical representation termed a concept lattice. Thanks to its simplicity, elegance and versatility, concept data analysis can effectively support various kinds of content management tasks using different or heterogeneous types of data. Provides a comprehensive treatment of the full range of techniques developed for concept data analysis covering creation, maintenance, display and manipulation of concept lattices Presents application areas such as information retrieval and mining from text and web data as well as rule mining from structured data Features two detailed case studies; exploring the content of the ACM Digital Library using an interface that integrates multiple search functionalities; and mining web retrieval results through the system CREDO, a version of which is available on-line for testing Concept Data Analysis: Theory & Applications is essential for researchers active in information processing and data mining as well as industry practitioners who are interested in creating a commercial product for concept data analysis or developing content management applications. Computer science students will also find it invaluable.
