Data mining

Data mining is sorting through data to identify patterns and establish relationships.
  • Association - looking for patterns where one event is connected to another event
  • Sequence or path analysis - looking for patterns where one event leads to another later event
  • Classification - looking for new patterns.
  • Clustering - finding and visually documenting groups of facts not previously known.
  • Forecasting - discovering patterns in data that can lead to reasonable predictions about the future.
