Data Mining - An Introduction

About the Topic:

In two parts, we will explore the field of data mining. In part one, we will explore what data mining is and is not, and what the major algorithms can do in terms of prediction and description—for the benefit of science and business. In part two, we will explore one algorithm in detail, and see what it would take to implement a true custom data mining application.

About the Speaker:

Erich is currently a PhD student at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, where he does research in creating new data mining algorithms and works as a graduate assistant in the Virtual Reality Center. He has also worked in industry as a web and database developer using ASP .NET. In his spare time, Erich likes to read, write, and hike.
