Riassunto: With the large amount of data stored by many organizations, capitalists have observed that this information is an intangible asset. Unfortunately, handling large databases is a very complex process and traditional learning techniques are expensive to use. Heuristic techniques provide much help in this arena, although little is known about heuristic techniques. Heuristic and Optimization for Knowledge Discovery addresses the foundation of this topic, as well as its practical uses, and aims to fill in the gap that exists in current literature.
