XP33PPD – Practical Data Mining Problems (Praktické problémy data mining)

Basic info

The course is focused on solving practical data mining problems. Lectures deal with data transformation, pre-processing and verification, selection of a suitable data mining algorithm and data mining process evaluation and results interpretation. The attention is paid to solving an individual data mining problem based on real-life data under the supervision of the lecturer.

Where and when: mid-term and end-term presentations at CIIRC. The room will be announced in the MS Teams channel.
