About Data Mining
Data mining is exploring of knowledge regarding data from large data warehouses by computer assisted process. Data mining tools help in future trends and behaviors with knowledge-driven decisions and work on existing software and hardware platforms to enhance the value of existing information resources and associated with new products and systems.
The field combines tools from statistics and artificial intelligence (such as neural networks and machine learning) with database management to analyze large digital collections, known as data sets.
Data mining is widely used in business (insurance, banking, retail), science research (astronomy, medicine), and government security (detection of criminals and terrorists).
