Course objectives
Data mining is a proven way how to get best knowledge from data for decision making. The course is an introduction to data mining issues, definitions of basic concepts, an introduction and practice of the methods and techniques that are used in practice. Students will gain a basic knowledge of these methods. On computer exercises they will learn to work with statistical software SAS and apply presented methods on real data.
