Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Data mining is the computational process of discovering patterns in large data
sets. It is used on universities as well as in practice (marketing, business,
medicine, large data warehouses management ...) and it utilizes the methods of
statistics, machine learning and artificial intelligence to solve real world
problems. A student will get an overview of fundamental techniques, from
theoretical background to typical applications. Upon completion he will be
able to find a solution of many real world problems by means of the open
source software environment - R.
Course contents:
- Cluster analysis (hierarchical clustering, k-means algorithm).
- Networks analysis.
- Classification and regression (logistic regression, linear discriminant
analysis, nearest neighbor method, naive Bayes classifier, support vector
machines, decision trees, neural networks).
- Ensemble methods (random forests, AdaBoost, stacking, GBM).
- Anomalies detection.
- Recommender systems.
- Data mining of texts, images, audio files, web, spatial and time series.
- Big data analysis.
- Visualization techniques.
