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 applications.
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.
