Introducing the fundamental concepts and algorithms of data mining.
Introduction to Data Mining, 2nd Edition, gives a comprehensive overview of the background and general themes of data mining and is designed to be useful to students, instructors, researchers, and professionals. Presented in a clear and accessible way, the book outlines fundamental concepts and algorithms for each topic, thus providing the reader with the necessary background for the application of data mining to real problems. The text helps readers understand the nuances of the subject, and includes important sections on classification, association analysis, and cluster analysis. This edition improves on the first iteration of the book, published over a decade ago, by addressing the significant changes in the industry as a result of advanced technology and data growth.
The volume and variety of data being collected continues to increase, as has the rate (velocity) at which it is being collected and used to make decisions. Indeed, the term, Big Data, has been used to refer to the massive and diverse data sets now available. In addition, the term data science has been coined to describe an emerging area that applies tools and techniques from various fields, such as data mining, machine learning, statistics, and many others, to extract actionable insights from data, often Big Data.
Almost every section of the advanced classification chapter has been significantly updated. The material on Bayesian networks, support vector machines, and artificial neural networks has been significantly expanded. We have added a separate section on deep networks to address the current developments in this area. The discussion of evaluation, which occurs in the section on imbalanced classes, has also been updated and improved.
