    Database Perspectives on Data Mining

    The next few lectures will concentrate on the interplay between database systems and data mining. There are several issues that have been studied by researchers on how to to enhance database support for data mining. They can be broadly classified as:

    1. Enhancing the underlying model of data and DBMSs (The Logical Model of Data, Deductive Databases, Rules, Active Databases, Semistructured data, SDDF etc.)
    2. Enhancing the expressiveness of query languages (Rule Query Languages, Meta Queries, Query optimizations)
    3. Integration with Data Warehousing Systems (OLAP, Historical Data, Meta-Data, Interactive Exploring)

    Of course, there are 3Cn combinations of these ideas, too.

    Statistical Perspectives on Data Mining

    The next few classes will concentrate on the many different statistical viewpoints that have been offered for the data miner. In particular, we focus on issues in small and large sample size statistics, models and perspectives from statistical learning theory, as applied to data mining.

    Perspectives from the AI community

    The distinction of lectures here is not very crisp here, but the following topics will form a smooth transition from the statistical viewpoints to ones offered by the AI researcher. This mostly involves what is known as "speedup" learning by the machine learning community.
