Solution of Data Mining: Concepts and Techniques, Second Edition (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Data Management Systems) By Jiawei Han, Micheline Kamber, Jian Pei
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.
Whether you are a seasoned professional or a new student of data mining, this book has much to offer you:
* A comprehensive, practical look at the concepts and techniques you need to know to get the most out of real business data.
* Updates that incorporate input from readers, changes in the field, and more material on statistics and machine learning.
*Dozens of algorithms and implementation examples, all in easily understood pseudo-code and suitable for use in real-world, large-scale data mining projects.
