Chapter(6): Advanced Analytics and Ground Mechanics


Advanced Analytics is the autonomous or semi-autonomous examination of data or content using sophisticated techniques and tools, typically beyond those of traditional business intelligence (BI), to discover deeper insights, make predictions, or generate recommendations. Advanced analytic techniques include those such as data/text mining, machine learning, pattern matching, forecasting, visualization, semantic analysis, sentiment analysis, network, and cluster analysis, multivariate statistics, graph analysis, simulation, complex event processing, neural networks. Advanced analytics is a powerful tool in the field of ground mechanics. This chapter presents the application of advanced data analytics in hard and soft rock ground control, surface mine subsidence, tailing impoundments and dams, waste piles, and dumps.
