Data Mining, Southeast Asia Edition
Our ability to generate and collect data has been increasing rapidly. Not only are all of our business, scientific, and government transactions now computerized, but the widespread use of digital cameras, publication tools, and bar codes also generate data. On the collection side, scanned text and image platforms, satellite remote sensing systems, and the World Wide Web have flooded us with a tremendous amount of data. This explosive growth has generated an even more urgent need for new techniques and automated tools that can help us transform this data into useful information and knowledge.
Like the first edition, voted the most popular data mining book by KD Nuggets readers, this book explores concepts and techniques for the discovery of patterns hidden in large data sets, focusing on issues relating to their feasibility, usefulness, effectiveness, and scalability. However, since the publication of the first edition, great progress has been made in the development of new data mining methods, systems, and applications. This new edition substantially enhances the first edition, and new chapters have been added to address recent developments on mining complex types of data— including stream data, sequence data, graph structured data, social network data, and multi-relational data.
It then covers in a chapter-by-chapter tour the concepts and techniques that
underlie classification, prediction, association, and clustering. These topics are
presented with examples, a tour of the best algorithms for each problem class,
and with ...
In addition, several new chapters are included to address recent developments
on mining complex types of data, including stream data, sequence data, graph ...
Chapter 1 provides an introduction to the multidisciplinary field of data mining.
warehouse implementation methods. Chapter 3 introduces the basic concepts,
architectures and general implementations of data warehouse and on-line
analytical processing, as well as the relationship between data warehousing and
mining object, spatial, multimedia, text, and Web data, which cover a great deal of
new progress in these areas. Finally, in Chapter 11, we summarize the concepts
presented in this book and discuss applications and trends in data mining.
In this chapter, you will learn how data mining is part of the natural evolution of
database technology, why data mining is important, and how it is defined. You
will learn about the general architecture of data mining systems, as well as gain ...
