Data Mining Techniques

Course Description

Application of methods using techniques in data mining, text mining, and predictive modeling for exploration and knowledge discovery. Design of objectives, data selection and preparation, analytic method selection such as classification and decision trees, and predictive modeling will be used for a variety of case studies and practical industry applications. Applying data mining using real world data will leverage statistical assessment and interpretation from database information.
