What is data mining?
According to Tufféry (2012), data mining is the art of extracting information, in other words knowledge, from data. It is in fact an ‘intelligent’ extraction and not simply a presentation of numerical results, statistics, surveys, sales statements, quoted market values, macroeconomic indicators, meteorological record. Nor does it consist of simple descriptive statistics. In essence, data mining occurs when specific raw data is used to attempt to go from the known to the unknown in order to formulate predictions or pursue more in-depth trend analyses.
Whether you are a novice predictive analyst aspiring to acquire good practices from the very start or a data miner wishing to explore new modeling techniques, we can assist you in creating a customized training plan.
