xp36vpd -- Selected parts of data mining

Data mining aims at revealing non-trivial, hidden and ultimately applicable knowledge in large data. This course focuses on two key data mining issues: data size and their heterogeneity. When dealing with large data, it is important to resolve both the technical issues such as distributed computing or hashing and general algorithmic complexity. In this part, the course will be motivated mainly by case studies on web and social network mining. The second part will discuss approaches that merge heterogeneous prior knowledge with measured data. Bioinformatics will make the main application field here. It is assumed that students have completed the master course on Machine Learning and Data Analysis (A4M33SAD).

The course will take a form of reading and discussion group. Each student gives two 1 hour lectures, followed by a 30 min discussion. One of the lectures shall be DM general (MMDS book chapters, recent tutorials at major ML/DM conferences, etc.), the second one can present your research (if DM related) or a DM topic that is closely related to your research or research interests.

Go beyond the literature, provide own insight, offer own illustrative examples, etc.

Evaluation, requirements

  • every student must give his talks (the principle requirement in this type of course),
  • attendance and active discussion at presentations of other students,
  • pass the exam, i.e., prove the knowledge of basic concepts presented during the course.
