  11. 11. So What Is Data Mining? • In theory, Data Mining is a step in the knowledge discovery process. It is the extraction of implicit information from a large dataset. • In practice, data mining and knowledge discovery are becoming synonyms.
  12. 12. What Can Be Discovered? What can be discovered depends upon the data mining task employed. • Descriptive DM tasks Describe general properties • Predictive DM tasks Infer on available data
  13. 13. What kind of information are we collecting? • Business transactions • Scientific data (biology, physics, etc.) • Medical and personal data • Surveillance video and pictures • Satellite sensing • Games
  14. 14. (Con’t) • Digital media • CAD and Software engineering • Virtual worlds • Text reports and memos • The World Wide Web
