- Generalize, summarize, and contrast data characteristics, e.g., dry vs. wet regions

- Association (correlation and causality)
- Diaper à Beer [0.5%, 75%]

- Classification and Prediction
- Construct models (functions) that describe and distinguish classes or concepts for future prediction
- E.g., classify countries based on climate, or classify cars based on gas mileage

- Presentation: decision-tree, classification rule, neural network
- Predict some unknown or missing numerical values

- Construct models (functions) that describe and distinguish classes or concepts for future prediction

- Maximizing intra-class similarity & minimizing interclass similarity

- Mining complex types of data

Data Mining: Concepts and Techniques

- Itemset X={x1, …, xk}
- Find all the rules XYwith min confidence and support
- support, s, probability that a transaction contains XY
- confidence, c,conditional probability that a transaction having X also contains Y.

- Let min_support = 50%, min_conf = 50%:
- A C (50%, 66.7%)
- C A (50%, 100%)

Data Mining: Concepts and Techniques

- Any subset of a frequent itemset must be frequent
- if {beer, diaper, nuts} is frequent, so is {beer, diaper}
- Every transaction having {beer, diaper, nuts} also contains {beer, diaper}

- Apriori pruning principle: If there is any itemset which is infrequent, its superset should not be generated/tested!
- Method:
- generate length (k+1) candidate itemsets from length k frequent itemsets, and
- test the candidates against DB

Data Mining: Concepts and Techniques

- Given a set of sequences, find the complete set of frequent subsequences

A sequence : < (ef) (ab) (df) c b >

A sequence database

An element may contain a set of items.

Items within an element are unordered

and we list them alphabetically.

<a(bc)dc> is a subsequence of <a(abc)(ac)d(cf)>

Given support thresholdmin_sup =2, <(ab)c> is a sequential pattern

Data Mining: Concepts and Techniques

- Classification:
- predicts categorical class labels (discrete or nominal)
- classifies data (constructs a model) based on the training set and the values (class labels) in a classifying attribute and uses it in classifying new data

- Prediction:
- models continuous-valued functions, i.e., predicts unknown or missing values

- Typical Applications
- credit approval
- target marketing
- medical diagnosis
- treatment effectiveness analysis

Data Mining: Concepts and Techniques

- Basic algorithm (a greedy algorithm)
- Tree is constructed in a top-down recursive divide-and-conquer manner
- At start, all the training examples are at the root
- Attributes are categorical (if continuous-valued, they are discretized in advance)
- Examples are partitioned recursively based on selected attributes
- Test attributes are selected on the basis of a heuristic or statistical measure (e.g., information gain)

- Conditions for stopping partitioning
- All samples for a given node belong to the same class
- There are no remaining attributes for further partitioning – majority voting is employed for classifying the leaf
- There are no samples left

Data Mining: Concepts and Techniques

- Classification by decision tree induction
- Bayesian Classification
- Classification by Neural Networks
- Classification by Support Vector Machines (SVM)
- Classification based on concepts from association rule mining

Data Mining: Concepts and Techniques

- Cluster: a collection of data objects
- Similar to one another within the same cluster
- Dissimilar to the objects in other clusters

- Cluster analysis
- Grouping a set of data objects into clusters

- Clustering is unsupervised classification: no predefined classes
- Typical applications
- As a stand-alone tool to get insight into data distribution
- As a preprocessing step for other algorithms

- A good clustering method will produce high quality clusters with
- high intra-class similarity
- low inter-class similarity

- The quality of a clustering result depends on both the similarity measure used by the method and its implementation.
- The quality of a clustering method is also measured by its ability to discover some or all of the hidden patterns.

Data Mining: Concepts and Techniques

- Partitioning algorithms: Construct various partitions and then evaluate them by some criterion
- Hierarchy algorithms: Create a hierarchical decomposition of the set of data (or objects) using some criterion
- Density-based: based on connectivity and density functions
- Grid-based: based on a multiple-level granularity structure
- Model-based: A model is hypothesized for each of the clusters and the idea is to find the best fit of that model to each other

Data Mining: Concepts and Techniques

- Given k, the k-means algorithm is implemented in four steps:
- Partition objects into k nonempty subsets
- Compute seed points as the centroids of the clusters of the current partition (the centroid is the center, i.e., mean point, of the cluster)
- Assign each object to the cluster with the nearest seed point
- Go back to Step 2, stop when no more new assignment

Data Mining: Concepts and Techniques

- Mining spatial databases
- Mining multimedia databases
- Mining time-series and sequence data
- Mining stream data
- Mining text databases
- Mining the World-Wide Web

Data Mining: Concepts and Techniques

Time-series plot

Data Mining: Concepts and Techniques

- Predict whether increase or decrease
- Long-term or trend movements (trend curve)
- Cyclic movements or cycle variations, e.g., business cycles
- Seasonal movements or seasonal variations
- i.e, almost identical patterns that a time series appears to follow during corresponding months of successive years.

- Irregular or random movements

Data Mining: Concepts and Techniques

- Normal database query finds exact match
- Similarity search finds data sequences that differ only slightly from the given query sequence
- Two categories of similarity queries
- find a sequence that is similar to the query sequence
- find all pairs of similar sequences

Data Mining: Concepts and Techniques

Data Warehouse

Data Mining: Concepts and Techniques

- Defined in many different ways, but not rigorously.
- A decision support database that is maintained separately from the organization’s operational database
- Support information processing by providing a solid platform of consolidated, historical data for analysis.

- “A data warehouse is asubject-oriented, integrated, time-variant, and nonvolatilecollection of data in support of management’s decision-making process.”—W. H. Inmon
- Data warehousing:
- The process of constructing and using data warehouses

Data Mining: Concepts and Techniques

- Modeling data warehouses: dimensions & measures
- Star schema: A fact table in the middle connected to a set of dimension tables
- Snowflake schema: A refinement of star schema where some dimensional hierarchy is normalized into a set of smaller dimension tables, forming a shape similar to snowflake
- Fact constellations: Multiple fact tables share dimension tables, viewed as a collection of stars, therefore called galaxy schema or fact constellation
