During the last three decades, formal concept analysis (FCA) became a well‐known formalism in data analysis and knowledge discovery because of its usefulness in important domains of knowledge discovery in databases (KDD) such as ontology engineering, association rule mining, machine learning, as well as relation to other established theories for representing knowledge processing, like description logics, conceptual graphs, and rough sets. In early days, FCA was sometimes misconceived as a static crisp hardly scalable formalism for binary data tables. In this paper, we will try to show that FCA actually provides support for processing large dynamical complex (may be uncertain) data augmented with additional knowledge. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
