Large data sets are available nowadays in the world and fast approaches of classification or clustering becomes a tedious work with large data sets. For example, computer vision, text mining, semantic web mining, natural language processing etc., require non-parametric pattern recognition methods. This book describes fast approaches to discover knowledge from large data sets.This book deals with condensing of large data and also preserving essential information in the data. This book describes many efficient fast classifiers and clustering methods which are based on density information in the large data sets. It describes to resolve vagueness and uncertainty that is present in large data sets using combination principles of rough sets and fuzzy sets. Approaches in this book are adaptive and they can be applied in many machine learning methods in many domains.
