Big Data is being generated around us at 24/7 basis, from daily business,
custom use, engineering, science activities, sensory data collected from
IoTs and CPS systems, among others. Storing and owing only such massive
amount of data is meaningless, as the key point is to identify, locate and
extract valuable knowledge from Big Data to forecast and services support,
improving quality of service and society’s value. Such extracted valuable
knowledge is usually referred to Smart Data that is vital in providing
suitable decision in highly on-demand business, science and engineering

How to select Smart Data from Big Data, unlocking value in massive
datasets? Advanced Big Data modeling and analytics are indispensable for
discovering the underlying structure from retrieved data to acquire Smart
Data, whereas novel computing theories as well advanced mining and learning
techniques are fundamentally important to the search of such intelligent
decision and predicative services support.

In this book, it is intended to invite scholars, experts and successful
case participating members to contribute discussions on topics for smart
data mining and management as well as applications. Not only smart data
computing algorithms and architectures from the computer point of view, but
also smart data applications in business issues aspects, industrial aspects
and related areas, it is equally well suitable for data analysts in
business and industry.
