Course Information - Topics

Current technology has made available enormous amounts of data. Many organizations are creating huge databases of business data, such as consumer data, transaction histories, etc. Scientists and engineers in many fields are capturing increasingly complex experimental data sets. But why do people store so much data? The main objective is to extract (or mine) interesting patterns, associations, rules, changes, anomalies, and general regularities from the data to improve the process of decision making. In this course we will study the tools needed for efficient inference of these types of knowledge from massive data sets. Topics covered include: Special emphasis will be given to multimedia/medical databases.
