Soft Methods for Data Science

Soft Methods for Data Science (Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing)

Over the last 50 years in different areas such as decision theory, information processing, and data mining, the interest to extend probability theory and statistics has grown. The common feature of those attempts is to widen frameworks for representing different kinds of uncertainty: randomness, imprecision, vagueness, and ignorance. The scope is to develop more flexible methods to analyze data and extract knowledge from them. The extension of classical methods consists in “softening” them by means of new approaches involving fuzzy set theory, possibility theory, rough sets, or having their origin in probability theory itself, like imprecise probabilities, belief functions, and fuzzy random variables.
