DATA MINING, BIG DATA ANALYTICS, Tutorials, HELINA 2014, Saturday 7th March 2015 from 9:30 AM to 4:00 PM

 

Data Mining, Big Data Analytics: Why, What, What Is It For?

The explosive growth in stored data has generated an urgent need for new techniques and automated tools that can intelligently help in transforming the tremendous amounts of data into useful information and knowledge. Data Mining, Big Data Analytics is an analytical process designed to extract interesting patterns and knowledge from huge amount of data in search of consistent patterns and/or systematic relationships between variables. Algorithms involved must then be scalable to handle big data (e.g., High-dimensionality of data, High-complexity of data, Micro-array with thousands of dimensions). The ultimate goal of data mining is prediction and decision making. The concept of Data Mining is becoming increasingly popular and applied in almost all fields; it is expected to reveal knowledge structures that can guide decisions in conditions of limited certainty.
