This course introduces Data Mining, an area that plays a key role in Big Data analytics. The goal of data mining is the efﬁcient discovery of useful patterns in large datasets. This course focuses on fundamental data mining tasks and algorithms as well as key applications. It will prepare you both for developing your own data mining application and for starting your data mining research. Students taking this course are expected to have taken an algorithms course and to have an understanding of basic statistics equivalent to an entry-level course. The course project requires programming in Python or R, and students are expected to be proﬁcient with one of these programming languages.
