On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- explain advanced methods for data mining from large amounts of data, both in theory and in practical application
- implement and use these methods with appropriate tools and
- evaluate and compare the suitability, scalability and efficiency of different methods.
Advanced methods in data mining covering the fields of web data mining and search engines, spatial and temporal data mining including cluster evaluation and advanced clustering, stream based data mining, and sequential association analysis. Additional areas include advanced association analysis, methods for large-scale data mining, introduction to outlier analysis, and methods for privacy-preserving in data mining.
Lectures, seminars, laboratory sessions and assignments. Guest lecture
Written examination (3 HE credits) and written and oral presentation of assignments (2 HE credits).
If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding special pedagogical support from the disability coordinator of the university.
The course can not be counted in higher education qualification together with the course Data Mining (7.5 HE credits).
