TTh 9:30-11am
Prof. Inderjit Dhillon
Recent times have seen a massive growth in the raw data that is available
electronically. Data mining is the automatic discovery of interesting
patterns and relationships in massive data sets. This undergraduate course
will provide an introduction to the topic of data mining. Areas covered
include topics from "supervised learning" (regression, classification)
and "unsupervised learning" (clustering, data visualization, principal
components analysis, matrix factorizations). Basic concepts, representative
algorithms and evaluation techniques will be covered.
Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of linear algebra, probability, programming,
data structures, and algorithms.
