The main Data Mining techniques will be addressed during this course. More precisely, association rules, classification (or, supervised learning) and clustering (or, unsupervised learning). The main objective for the students is (i) to be able to identify which kind of knowledge (association vs classification model vs segmentation) is needed depending on the practical problem they are faced and (ii), the pros and limitations of each technique. Practical exercises will be performed using free software like Weka or Rapidminer.
