CS 583 - Spring 2007 (under construction)

Data Mining and Text Mining

Course Objective

This course has three objectives. First, to provide students with a sound basis in data mining tasks and techniques. Second, to ensure that students are able to read, and critically evaluate data mining research papers. Third, to ensue that students are able to implement and to use some of the important data mining and text mining algorithms.

Think and Ask!

If you have questions about any topic or assignment, DO ASK me or even your classmates for help, I am here to make the course undersdood. DO NOT delay your questions. There is no such thing as a stupid question. The only obstacle to learning is laziness.
