"Die Autoren meistern den Spagat, ein hochgradig theoretisches Thema mit hohem Praxiswert so darzustellen, dass es sowohl für Anwender als auch für Entwickler nützlich und insbesondere verständlich ist. Alles in allem ein überaus interessantes, leseneswertes und vor allem hilfreiches Buch."
Data Mining, Second Edition, describes data mining techniques and shows how they work. The book is a major revision of the first edition that appeared in 1999. While the basic core remains the same, it has been updated to reflect the changes that have taken place over five years, and now has nearly double the references.
The highlights of this new edition include thirty new technique sections; an enhanced Weka machine learning workbench, which now features an interactive interface; comprehensive information on neural networks; a new section on Bayesian networks; and much more.
This text is designed for information systems practitioners, programmers, consultants, developers, information technology managers, specification writers as well as professors and students of graduate-level data mining and machine learning courses.
- Algorithmic methods at the heart of successful data mining—including tried and true techniques as well as leading edge methods
- Performance improvement techniques that work by transforming the input or output
