Data mining is an area of research where appropriate methodological research and technical means are experienced to produce useful knowledge from different types of data. Data mining techniques use a broad family of computationally intensive methods that include decision trees, neural networks, rule induction, machine learning and graphic visualization. This book discusses the principles, applications and emerging challenges of data mining.
