Download Data Mining: The Textbook by Charu C. Aggarwal PDF

By Charu C. Aggarwal

This textbook explores the various facets of information mining from the basics to the complicated facts forms and their purposes, taking pictures the broad variety of challenge domain names for facts mining concerns. It is going past the normal specialize in facts mining difficulties to introduce complex information kinds reminiscent of textual content, time sequence, discrete sequences, spatial facts, graph info, and social networks. in the past, no unmarried booklet has addressed a majority of these subject matters in a entire and built-in method. The chapters of this e-book fall into one in every of 3 different types:

  • Fundamental chapters: info mining has 4 major difficulties, which correspond to clustering, type, organization trend mining, and outlier research. those chapters comprehensively speak about a large choice of tools for those difficulties.
  • Domain chapters: those chapters talk about the categorical equipment used for various domain names of knowledge reminiscent of textual content info, time-series information, series info, graph information, and spatial facts.
  • Application chapters: those chapters research vital functions resembling move mining, internet mining, rating, suggestions, social networks, and privateness upkeep. The area chapters even have an utilized taste.

Appropriate for either introductory and complex information mining classes, info Mining: The Textbook balances mathematical information and instinct. It includes the mandatory mathematical info for professors and researchers, however it is gifted in an easy and intuitive variety to enhance accessibility for college kids and business practitioners (including people with a constrained mathematical background). quite a few illustrations, examples, and routines are incorporated, with an emphasis on semantically interpretable examples.

18, there are many elegant ways of performing the recommendations, some of which are more effective than the others depending on the specific definition of the problem. Therefore, the entire data mining process is an art form, which is based on the skill of the analyst, and cannot be fully captured by a single technique or building block. In practice, this skill can be learned only by working with a diversity of applications over different scenarios and data types. 1 The Data Preprocessing Phase The data preprocessing phase is perhaps the most crucial one in the data mining process.

Sometimes, the time stamp is not explicitly used, but a position index is used. While the time-series data type contains only one contextual attribute, other data types may have more than one contextual attribute. A specific example is spatial data, which will be discussed later in this chapter. 2. Behavioral attributes: These represent the values that are measured in a particular context. In the sensor example, the temperature is the behavioral attribute value. It is possible to have more than one behavioral attribute.

In most applications, the data are created by one or more generating processes that can either reflect activity in the system or observations collected about entities. When the generating process behaves in an unusual way, it results in the creation of outliers. Therefore, an outlier often contains useful information about abnormal characteristics of the systems and entities that impact the data-generation process. The recognition of such unusual characteristics provides useful application-specific insights.
