Workshop on Data Discretization and Segmentation for Knowledge Discovery(DDS13)

****        Deadline Extended         ****
****  New  Deadline : August 7, 2013  ****

A workshop in  the fifth JSAI International Symposia on AI (isAI2013)

October 27, 2013 (Sun)
Keio University
Hiyoshi, Yokohama, JAPAN

Decomposing one datum into a set of several small data is found playing a crucial role in Computer Science. Usually decomposition indicates an operation to consecutive data structure but in the context of Machine Learning Knowledge Discovery, decomposition can include, for example, segmentation of sentences in natural languages and segmentation of time series, and moreover can be extended so that discretization of continuous data is also an example. The focus of this workshop is on segmentation methods to various types of data, such as graphs, trees, strings, and continuous data, and their applications to Machine Learning and Knowledge Discovery.  Scientific results are welcomed based on, but not restricted to, the keywords listed and their applications to bioinformatics, natural language processing, social network analysis, and the other areas.

    segmentation methods for consecutive data,
    discretization methods for continuous data,
    granular computing for machine learning and knowledge discovery,
    data compression for knowledge discovery,
    algebraic methods,
    formal language theory
