"This book provides a focal point for research and real-world data mining practitioners that advance knowledge discovery from low-quality data; it presents in-depth experiences and methodologies, providing theoretical and empirical guidance to users who have suffered from underlying low-quality data. Contributions also focus on interdisciplinary collaborations among data quality, data processing, data mining, data privacy, and data sharing"--Provided by publisher.
The authors systematically review methods of online digital advertising (ad) fraud and the techniques to prevent and defeat such fraud in this brief. The authors categorize ad fraud into three major categories, including (1) placement fraud, (2) traffic fraud, and (3) action fraud. It summarizes major features of each type of fraud, and also outlines measures and resources to detect each type of fraud. This brief provides a comprehensive guideline to help researchers understand the state-of-the-art in ad fraud detection. It also serves as a technical reference for industry to design new techniques and solutions to win the battle against fraud.

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Second International Conference on Data Science, ICDS 2015, held in Sydney, Australia, during August 8-9, 2015. The 19 revised full papers and 5 short papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 31 submissions. The papers focus on the following topics: mathematical issues in data science; big data issues and applications; data quality and data preparation; data-driven scientific research; evaluation and measurement in data service; big data mining and knowledge management; case study of data science; social impacts of data science.
MCDM 2009, the 20th International Conference on Multiple-Criteria Decision M- ing, emerged as a global forum dedicated to the sharing of original research results and practical development experiences among researchers and application developers from different multiple-criteria decision making-related areas such as multiple-criteria decision aiding, multiple criteria classification, ranking, and sorting, multiple obj- tive continuous and combinatorial optimization, multiple objective metaheuristics, multiple-criteria decision making and preference modeling, and fuzzy multiple-criteria decision making. The theme for MCDM 2009 was “New State of MCDM in the 21st Century.” The conference see...
The two-volume set LNAI 7818 + LNAI 7819 constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 17th Pacific-Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining, PAKDD 2013, held in Gold Coast, Australia, in April 2013. The total of 98 papers presented in these proceedings was carefully reviewed and selected from 363 submissions. They cover the general fields of data mining and KDD extensively, including pattern mining, classification, graph mining, applications, machine learning, feature selection and dimensionality reduction, multiple information sources mining, social networks, clustering, text mining, text classification, imbalanced data, privacy-preserving data mining, recommendation, multimedia data mining, stream data mining, data preprocessing and representation.
The soil-transmitted nematode parasites, or geohelminths, are so called because they have a direct life cycle, which involves no intermediate hosts or vectors, and are transmitted by faecal contamination of soil, foodstuffs and water supplies. They all inhabit the intestine in their adult stages but most species also have tissue-migratory juvenile stages, so the disease manifestations they cause can therefore be both local and systemic. The geohelminths together present an enormous infection burden on humanity. Those which cause the most disease in humans are divided into three main groupings, Ascaris lumbricoides (the large roundworm), Trichuris trichiura (whipworm), and the blood-feeding h...
