Building an Intelligent Web: Theory and Practice will be available in October. The book is intended to be a textbook, so the price is higher than other books that I mention.
Here are the details:
The World Wide Web has become an extremely popular way of publishing and distributing electronic resources. Though the Web is rich with information, collecting and making sense of this data is difficult because it is rather unorganized. Building an Intelligent Web introduces students and professionals to the state-of-the art development of Web Intelligence techniques and teaches how to apply these techniques to develop the next generation of intelligent Web sites. Each chapter contains theoretical bases, which are also illustrated with the help of simple numeric examples, followed by practical implementation. Students will find Building an Intelligent Web to be an active and exciting introduction to advanced Web mining topics.
Topics covered include Web Intelligence, Information Retrieval, Semantic Web, Classification and Association Rules, SQL, Database Theory, Applications to e-commerce and Bioinformatics, Clustering, Modeling Web Topology, and much more!
Includes IBM DB2 Express-C, a data server used in the development and deployment of applications including: XML, C/C++, Java, .NET, PHP, and more.
If you are a professor or curriculum developer, request a sample copy from the publisher. We're very pleased that the authors and publisher of this book decided to include DB2 Express-C on the CD that is shipped with the book. Most publishers are reluctant to ship CDs with their books any longer, but it can be very important, especially for students.
