The importance and impact of data science (DS) in the decision process are significantly increasing. DS is an interdisciplinary field that combines a set of areas including computer science, machine learning, math and statistics, domain/business knowledge, software development, and traditional research. As a research topic, DS applies scientific methods, processes, algorithms and systems to extract knowledge and insights from structured and unstructured data.
Knowledge discovery (KD) is the basis of data science and consists of the creation of knowledge from structured and unstructured sources (e.g., text, data, and images, among others). The output needs to be in a readable and interpretable format. It must represent knowledge in a manner that facilitates inferencing.
Several areas, like education, health, accounting, energy, and public administration are exploring this new trend. In this context, this Special Issue provides an excellent opportunity for providing scientific knowledge and disseminating the findings and achievements through several communities.
This Special Issue will discuss this trending topic and present innovative solutions to show the importance of data science and knowledge discovery to researchers, managers, industry, society, and other communities.
Finally, I would like to thank Gisela Fernandes and her valuable work for assisting me with this Special Issue.
