Data mining deals with finding patterns in data that are by user-definition, interesting and valid. It is an interdisciplinary area involving databases, machine learning, pattern recognition, statistics, visualization and others.
Independently, data mining and decision support are well-developed research areas, but until now there has been no systematic attempt to integrate them. Data Mining and Decision Support: Integration and Collaboration, written by leading researchers in the field, presents a conceptual framework, plus the methods and tools for integrating the two disciplines and for applying this technology to business problems in a collaborative setting.
... and Ann Macintosh made us aware of the difficulties of practical business solutions, providing guidance in focusing the project activities towards the main project goals of integration, collaboration, education, and business issues.
Finally, while one of the main goals of statistics is hypothesis testing, one of the main goals of data mining is the generation of understandable hypotheses. To conclude this section, we cite (Friedman, 1997) stating why data mining ...
Business understanding: understanding and defining of business goals and the actual goals of data mining. 2. Data understanding: familiarization with the data and the application domain, by exploring and defining the relevant prior ...
While a decision tree and a set of rules represent a model that can be used for classification and/or prediction, the goal of data analysis may be different. Instead of model construction, the goals may be the discovery of individual ...
The goal of clustering is to partition a set of data into groups, called clusters, such that the members of each group share some interesting common properties. Given data about a set of objects, a clustering algorithm creates groups of ...
