Knowledge Mining

Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (KDD) is an interdisciplinary area that focuses upon methodologies or techniques for extracting useful and necessary knowledge or information from data. The ongoing rapid growth of online data that is happening in the Internet and the widespread use of databases have created an immense need for KDD methodologies. The challenge of extracting knowledge from data draws upon research in statistics, databases, pattern recognition, data visualization, optimization, machine learning, and high-performance computing, to deliver advanced business intelligence and web discovery solutions.
