From Data to Concepts: Augmented Principles, Symbolic-Granular Descriptions, and Quality Analysis
Concepts constitute a concise manifestation of key features of data. As being built at a higher level of abstraction than the collected data themselves, they capture the essence of the data and usually emerge in the form of information granules.
