This book is a joint effort from leading and active researchers in Japan with a theme about active mining and a timely report on the forefront of data collection, user-centered mining and user interaction/reaction. It offers a contemporary overview of modern solutions with real-world applications, shares hard-learned experiences, and sheds light on future development of active mining.
