As technology advances, high volumes of valuable data are generated day by day in modern organizations. The management of such huge volumes of data has become a priority in these organizations, requiring new techniques for data management and data analysis in Big Data environments. These environments encompass many different fields including medicine, education data, and recommender systems. The aim of this book is to provide the reader with a variety of fields and systems where the analysis and management of Big Data are essential.
