Special issue: Intelligent and Fuzzy Techniques in Big Data Analytics and Decision Making (IFTBDADM)



Big Data Analytics refers to the strategy of analyzing large amounts of data, also called Big Data. Big Data is collected from a variety of sources, including social networks, videos, digital images, sensors, and sales transaction records.The goal in analyzing all of this data is to uncover patterns and correlations that would otherwise be invisible, which could provide valuable insights about the users who generated the data. Big Data analytics enables data scientists and various other users to evaluate large volumes of transactional data and other data sources that would be impossible to handle with traditional business systems. Data and knowledge-based approaches and techniques are widely used in decision making and are gaining attention due to their importance and effectiveness in dealing with uncertainty and incompleteness. The information explosion brought about by the proliferation of digital technologies is impacting the way we can study and understand the dynamics of socio-economic-political systems by increasing the variety, availability and complexity of data available to both qualitative and quantitative researchers.
