Intelligent Decision Support Systems

  • Arturas KaklauskasEmail author
Part of the Intelligent Systems Reference Library book series (ISRL, volume 81)


This chapter presents the latest IDSSs, such as text analytics and mining based DSSs; ambient intelligence and the internet of things-based DSSs; biometrics-based DSSs; recommender, advisory and expert systems; data mining, data analytics, neural networks, remote sensing and their integration with decision support systems and other IDSSs. These other IDSSs include GA-based DSS; fuzzy sets DSS; rough sets-based DSS; intelligent agent-assisted DSS; process mining integration to decision support, adaptive DSS; computer vision based DSS; sensory DSS and robotic DSS. In addition to acquainting these IDSSs, author introduce practical examples where they have been effectively applied.
