Study Notes

Data Mining Techniques

  • Association techniques are used to find attributes that "go together" and quantify relationships between two or more attributes.
  • Common applications of association techniques include affinity analysis and market basket analysis in the business world.

Anomaly Detection

  • Anomaly detection is also referred to as outlier detection or analysis.
  • It involves identifying data objects that do not comply with the general behavior or model of the data.
  • A common use case is detecting fraudulent credit card transactions by identifying unusually large purchases.

Data Mining Techniques Overview

  • Classification involves predicting a categorical label or class.
  • Prediction involves predicting a continuous value or range.
  • Regression involves predicting a continuous value or range using a linear model.
  • Association involves finding attributes that "go together".
  • Clustering involves grouping similar data objects together.
  • Anomaly detection involves identifying outliers or unusual data objects.

Data Mining Examples

  • Dividing customers by gender or profitability is not a data mining task, as it involves simple database queries or accounting calculations.
  • Predicting the profitability of a new customer is a data mining task.
  • Computing total sales of a company is not a data mining task, as it involves simple accounting.
  • Sorting a student database by student identification numbers is not a data mining task, as it involves a simple database query.
  • Predicting the outcomes of tossing a fair pair of dice is not a data mining task, as it involves probability calculations.
  • Predicting the future stock price of a company using historical records is a data mining task, an example of predictive modeling.
  • Monitoring the heart rate of a patient for abnormalities is a data mining task, an example of anomaly detection.
  • Monitoring seismic waves for earthquake activities is a data mining task, an example of classification.

Machine Learning

  • Machine learning is a method of data analysis that automates analytical model building.
  • It is a branch of artificial intelligence (AI) that allows systems to learn from data, identify patterns, and make decisions with minimal human intervention.
  • Machine learning focuses on developing computer programs that can access data and use it to learn for themselves.

Traditional Programming vs Machine Learning

  • Traditional programming involves writing explicit rules to achieve a specific output.
  • Machine learning involves training a model on data to learn patterns and make decisions.

Machine Learning Process

  • The process of learning begins with observations or data, such as examples, direct experience, or instruction.
  • The goal is to look for patterns in the data and make decisions or predictions based on those patterns.
