Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2021).
Interests: big data analytics; data modeling; machine learning; web and social media analytics
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Data modeling is carried out to improve the quality of data, which eventually helps processes to identify interesting patterns and carry out predictions. Many of the latest research and development trends suggest and attempt to build data modeling, cleansing, and preparation techniques that are aligned towards improving and enhancing the performance and effectiveness of analysis and prediction mechanisms. This requires advanced methods, techniques, and tools that perform modeling, representation, and preparation of data in alignment with reasoning, analytics, and prediction.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to present the latest research in data modeling, predictive analytics, and related areas. Researchers and practitioners in these areas are invited to submit their original unpublished research works.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Data modeling
- Knowledge representation
- Data preprocessing and transformation
- Feature engineering
- Predictive analytics
- Ontologies and metadata
- Knowledge graphs
- Complex event modeling and processing
- Cataloguing and organization
- Semantic web and rules
- Natural language modeling and processing
- Rule-driven and data-driven reasoning
- Prediction and forecasting
- Machine learning
- Deep learning
