Overview

Knowledge discovery in databases (KDD) is the process of discovering useful knowledge from a collection of data. Real-life applications for this data mining technique include marketing, fraud detection, telecommunication and manufacturing.

In this instructor-led, live course, we introduce the processes involved in KDD and carry out a series of exercises to practice the implementation of those processes.

Audience

  • Data analysts or anyone interested in learning how to interpret data to solve problems

Format of the Course

  • After a theoretical discussion of KDD, the instructor will present real-life cases which call for the application of KDD to solve a problem. Participants will prepare, select and cleanse sample data sets and use their prior knowledge about the data to propose solutions based on the results of their observations.
