Data Mining I (Lecture)


Data mining, also called knowledge discovery in databases,  in computer science, is the process of discovering interesting and useful patterns and relationships in large volumes of data. The fieldcombines tools from statistics and artificial intelligence (such as neural networks and machine learning) with database management to analyze large digital collections, known as data sets. Data mining is widely used in business (insurance, banking, retail), science research (astronomy, medicine), and government security (detection of criminals and terrorists). Clifton, Christopher (2010). "Encyclopædia Britannica: Definition of Data Mining".
