Data Mining

Concepts and Techniques

Data Mining: Concepts and Techniques, Fourth Edition provides the theories and methods for processing gathered data or information to be used in various applications. Specifically, it explains data mining and the tools used in discovering knowledge from the collected data, known as KDD. It focuses on the feasibility, usefulness, effectiveness, and scalability of techniques of large data sets. After describing data mining, the authors explain the methods of knowing, preprocessing, processing, and warehousing data. They then present information about data warehouses, online analytical processing (OLAP), and data cube technology. Then, the methods involved in mining frequent patterns, associations, and correlations for large data sets are described. The book details the methods for data classification and introduces the concepts and methods for data clustering. The remaining chapters discuss the outlier detection and the trends, applications, and research frontiers in data mining. This book is intended for computer science students, application developers, business professionals, and researchers who seek information on data mining. Presents dozens of algorithms and implementation examples, all in pseudo-code and suitable for use in real-world, large-scale data mining projects Addresses advanced topics such as mining object-relational databases, spatial databases, multimedia databases, time-series databases, text databases, the World Wide Web, and applications in several fields Provides a comprehensive, practical look at the concepts and techniques needed to get the most out of your data

Concepts and methods for deep learning are systematically introduced as one chapter. Finally, the book covers the trends, applications, and research frontiers in data mining.
