Data Mining

Data mining uses complex techniques and algorithms to identify interesting and relevant patterns from large data sets. This interdisciplinary field draws upon statistics, machine learning, information retrieval, pattern recognition, and bioinformatics.  Data mining applications are utilized to obtain deep insight across a wide variety of industries including retail, finance, social media and telecommunications, to name a few.

Data Mining algorithms perform tasks such as regression analysis, clustering, classification, prediction, outlier detection, time series analysis, and sentiment analysis.

In today's applications, according to the CRISP-DM (Cross Industry Standard Process for Data Mining), the Data Mining process consists of six phases as follows:


  • Business understanding

  • Data understanding

  • Data preparation

  • Modeling

  • Evaluation

  • Deployment 


Data Mining Analysts, Researchers, and Practitioners are continually challenged when using the algorithms because the behavior and patterns identified change significantly as a function of the set parameters.
