Data Mining

Data mining also known as Knowledge Discovery in Databases (KDD) is a field of study that uses both computer science and statistics methods in discovering  patterns in large data sets. 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. Some of the major objectives of data mining include:

  • Outlier detection
  • Association analysis
  • Clustering
  • Classification
  • Regression
  • Prediction
