[Wiki] Data mining is an interdisciplinary subfield of computer science. It is the computational process of discovering patterns in large data sets involving methods at the intersection of artificial intelligence, machine learning, statistics, and database systems. The overall goal of the data mining process is to extract information from a data set and transform it into an understandable structure for further use.
After completing this course, students will be able to:
- Describe data mining concepts and considerations.
- Select an appropriate method for a data extraction process.
- perform the CRISP process on a data mining project.
- Design and customize data mining algorithms using R library.
- Learning and discovering interesting relations between variables in large databases using Association rules.
- Create a decision support tool based on machine learning and Decision Tree techniques.
- Create scoring models optimizing direct marketing.
- Perform hierarchical clustering (also called hierarchical cluster analysis or HCA) to describe large databases.
