Introduction to Data Mining

Wed, 10/6/2020 (online)

The term "Data Mining" refers to methods and algorithms which help to find structures and relationships in, typically very large and complex, data sets. This training session gives an overview of the most important methods in data mining. Aspects of data organization are briefly discussed and basic statistical techniques are presented (classification algorithms and neural networks).


What will you learn ?
Do you think that valuable pieces of information might be hidden in your data base? How can you identify patterns and trends in your data, and understand relationships?
