MKM 820 Data Mining for Knowledge Discovery
Rapidly evolving technologies has enabled the cost-effective collection and storage of massive amounts of data. The ‘knowledge’ content within these data present organizations with new, historically unmatched, opportunities to enhance their decision-making processes. Data Mining provides the power to discover and model the relevant knowledge (i.e., patterns and relationships) residing in the data. This essential component of the knowledge discovery process augments other capabilities (e.g., OLAP queries and data visualization) in the organizations’ decision support system architectures. This course provides an introduction to the principles, processes, and techniques employed by data mining for discovering the underlying relationships in large amounts of data.
