By Zbigniew Michalewicz

Within the sleek info period, managers needs to realize the aggressive possibilities represented by way of decision-support instruments. Adaptive company intelligence structures mix prediction and optimization thoughts to aid choice makers in complicated, quickly altering environments. those platforms deal with the basic questions: what's prone to ensue sooner or later? and what's the easiest selection instantaneously? Adaptive company Intelligence contains components of information mining, predictive modeling, forecasting, optimization, and adaptability.The authors have significant educational examine backgrounds in man made intelligence and similar fields, mixed with years of useful consulting event in companies and industries world wide. during this ebook they clarify the technological know-how and alertness of diverse prediction and optimization concepts, in addition to how those recommendations can be utilized to increase adaptive structures. The concepts coated comprise linear regression, time-series forecasting, determination timber and tables, man made neural networks, genetic programming, fuzzy platforms, genetic algorithms, simulated annealing, tabu seek, ant structures, and agent-based modeling.This ebook is acceptable for enterprise and IT managers who make judgements in advanced business and repair environments, nonspecialists who are looking to comprehend the technological know-how at the back of higher predictions and judgements, and scholars and researchers who desire a fast advent to this box.

38 4 Adaptive Business Intelligence Because all organizations operate in a time-changing environment, they are forced to constantly adapt and adjust. Consequently, an Adaptive Business Intelligence system must include three major components: (1) a component for making predictions (in our case, sale price predictions), (2) a component for making near-optimal decisions (in our case, the distribution of cars), and (3) a component for adapting the prediction module to changes in the environment. To create such a system, the following four steps should be followed: 13 x The available data must be prepared and thoroughly analyzed (the data mining stage).

6. 4 Adaptability Developing effective prediction and optimization modules is a great start, but by themselves these modules are insufficient for today’s ever-changing environments. Because today’s accurate prediction might be inaccurate tomorrow, the prediction module must be capable of “learning from” and “adapting to” changes in the environment. The concept of adaptability has far-reaching consequences: Imagine a system that would improve over time by learning from its own prediction errors.

Returning to the car distribution example, the VIN is clearly the key variable, because we can use it to identify any car. However, the VIN itself is not useful for data mining activities (after all, the string of 17 characters looks random and meaningless: e. , JD8320DJ2094GK2X3), but by using a VIN decoder it can be transformed into meaningful information about the make, model, year, and trim-level of a car. Although data transformation is an important step in the data preparation process, variable selection and variable composition are even more important.
