CSIS 5420 Data Mining

Course Description Data mining is the process of finding useful patterns in data. The objective of data mining is to use discovered patterns to help explain current behavior or to predict future outcomes.

This course will explore some data mining methods with a primary focus on model building and testing, as well as on interpreting and validating results. Model building is both an art and a science that is best understood from the perspective of learning by doing and this course will supplement the text with exercises with a data mining tool that will enable the student to experimentally build and test data mining models.
