Course detail

Knowledge Discovery in Databases

FIT-ZZDAcad. year: 2019/2020


  1. The deepening of basics in KDD - basics of methods of data preprocessing (statistics quantities used in data summarization, approaches to data cleaning, transformation and reduction), basics of data warehousing, basic methods and algorithms of mining frequent items and patterns and association rules (Apriori algorithm, FP-tree, multi-level association rules, mining multidimensional association rules from relational databases), basic methods and algorithms of classification (decision tree, Bayesian classification, using neural networks, SVM) and prediction (linear and nonlinear regression), basic methods and algorithms of cluster analysis (distance of data, partitioning methods, hierarchical methods, CF-tree, density-based methods, grid- and model-based methods).
  2. Advanced data mining techniques - advanced techniques of data mining in 'classic' data sources, mining in data streams, time series and sequences, mining in biological data; mining in graphs, multirelational data mining, mining in object, spatial and multimedia data, mining in text, mining on the Web.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students get a broad, yet in-depth overview of the field of data mining and knowledge discovery. They get a deeper view mainly in the field related to the topic of their thesis.

Prerequisites

Students should have basic knowledge in statistics, database systems, information theory, machine learning, neural networks. It is assumed that they have passed some subject on KDD.
