Meets with CS 5140. Data mining is the study of efficiently finding structures and patterns in data sets. The structure and patterns are based on statistical and probablistic principals, and they are found efficiently through the use of clever algorithms. This class focuses on teh modeling of problems and also efficient algorithms to solve them, especially at very large scale. Many of these techniques use randomized algorithms - these are often extremely simple to use, but more difficult to analyze. We will focus more on how to use, and give explanations (but often not proofs) of correctness.
