Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The concept of big data refers to structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data that come with greater variety, increasing volumes, and more velocity. With the exponential growth in data storage and computing power, it is now possible to process quantitative and textual data from various sources, such as mobile devices, social media, and the Internet of Things. Although, big data analytics offers great potential for leveraging big data in knowledge discovery and automation. However, traditional tools for managing and using smaller volumes of data may not be suitable for big data. To manage, organize, and model big data, researchers and practitioners need powerful hardware and distributed computing paradigms, as well as strong predictive models.

The focus of this Special Issue is big data analytics, including—but not limited to—data capture and storage, big data technologies, data visualization techniques for big data, architectures for parallel processing of big data, data mining tools and techniques, machine-learning algorithms for big data, and cloud computing platforms designed for processing big data. We encourage submissions that present findings of empirical research, systematic reviews, or theoretical work utilizing big data in social and natural sciences (e.g., education, psychology, business, health, computing science, etc.).

Sentiment analysis holds great importance within the domain of natural language processing as it examines both the expressed and underlying emotions conveyed through review content. Furthermore, researchers have discovered that relying solely on the overall sentiment derived from the textual content is inadequate. Consequently, sentiment analysis was developed to extract nuanced expressions from textual information. One of the challenges in this field is effectively extracting emotional elements using multi-label data that covers various aspects. This article presents a novel approach called the Ensemble of DenseNet based on Aquila Optimizer (EDAO). EDAO is specifically designed to enhance the precision and diversity of multi-label learners. Unlike traditional multi-label methods, EDAO strongly emphasizes improving model diversity and accuracy in multi-label scenarios. To evaluate the effectiveness of our approach, we conducted experiments on seven distinct datasets, including emotions, hotels, movies, proteins, automobiles, medical, news, and birds. Our initial strategy involves establishing a preprocessing mechanism to obtain precise and refined data. Subsequently, we used the Vader tool with Bag of Words (BoW) for feature extraction. In the third stage, we created word associations using the word2vec method. The improved data were also used to train and test the DenseNet model, which was fine-tuned using the Aquila Optimizer (AO). On the news, emotion, auto, bird, movie, hotel, protein, and medical datasets, utilizing the aspect-based multi-labeling technique, we achieved accuracy rates of 95%, 97%, and 96%, respectively, with DenseNet-AO. Our proposed model demonstrates that EDAO outperforms other standard methods across various multi-label datasets with different dimensions. The implemented strategy has been rigorously validated through experimental results, showcasing its effectiveness compared to existing benchmark approaches. Full article
