Data mining: what is it good for?
blog comments powered by Disqus
Notes from the completed session: Blog post. Original session description:
Data mining, machine learning, data crunching, different names for the same thing: wading through piles of digital junk looking for treasure. When do people actually do this in a business setting in the Twin Cities? What techniques do they use? What results have they gotten?
This will be an OPEN DISCUSSION. I will bring a couple of notes, but no slides, no prepared material. I stand to FALL FLAT ON MY FACE if no one else has anything interesting to say, so please come if you are interested in data mining, especially if you've done it or want to do it in your job.
If I had planned better, this would've been a panel. If you'd like to be on a hastily-arranged panel, please contact me! @dfrankow on Twitter.
