CIS527: Data Warehousing, Filtering, and
Lecture 1


“Necessity is the Mother of Invention”
• Data explosion problem
– Automated data collection tools and mature database technology
lead to tremendous amounts of data stored in databases, data

warehouses and other information repositories
• We are drowning in data, but starving for knowledge!
• Solution: Data warehousing and data mining

– Data warehousing and on-line analytical processing
– Extraction of interesting knowledge (rules, regularities, patterns,
constraints) from data in large databases

Why Mine Data? Commercial Viewpoint
• Lots of data is being collected
and warehoused
– Web data, e-commerce
– purchases at department/
grocery stores
– Bank/Credit Card

• Computers have become cheaper and more powerful
• Competitive Pressure is Strong
– Provide better, customized services for an edge (e.g. in
Customer Relationship Management)

Why Mine Data? Scientific Viewpoint
• Data collected and stored at
enormous speeds (GB/hour)
– remote sensors on a satellite
– telescopes scanning the skies
– microarrays generating gene
expression data
– scientific simulations
generating terabytes of data

• Traditional techniques infeasible for raw
• Data mining may help scientists
– in classifying and segmenting data
– in Hypothesis Formation

What Is Data Mining?
• Data mining (knowledge discovery in databases):
– Extraction of interesting (non-trivial, implicit, previously
unknown and potentially useful) information or patterns
from data in large databases

• Alternative names and their “inside stories”:
– Data mining: a misnomer?
– Knowledge discovery(mining) in databases (KDD),
knowledge extraction, data/pattern analysis, data
archeology, business intelligence, etc.


Examples: What is (not) Data Mining?
 What is not Data

 What is Data Mining?


– Look up phone

– Certain names are more

number in phone

prevalent in certain US locations
(O’Brien, O’Rurke, O’Reilly… in
Boston area)

– Query a Web

– Group together similar
documents returned by search
engine according to their context
(e.g. Amazon rainforest,

search engine for
information about


Data Mining: Classification Schemes
• Decisions in data mining
– Kinds of databases to be mined
– Kinds of knowledge to be discovered
– Kinds of techniques utilized
– Kinds of applications adapted

• Data mining tasks
– Descriptive data mining
– Predictive data mining

Decisions in Data Mining
• Databases to be mined
– Relational, transactional, object-oriented, object-relational,
active, spatial, time-series, text, multi-media, heterogeneous,
legacy, WWW, etc.
• Knowledge to be mined
– Characterization, discrimination, association, classification,
clustering, trend, deviation and outlier analysis, etc.
– Multiple/integrated functions and mining at multiple levels
• Techniques utilized
– Database-oriented, data warehouse (OLAP), machine learning,
statistics, visualization, neural network, etc.
• Applications adapted
– Retail, telecommunication, banking, fraud analysis, DNA mining, stock
market analysis, Web mining, Weblog analysis, etc.

Data Mining Tasks
• Prediction Tasks
– Use some variables to predict unknown or future values of other

• Description Tasks
– Find human-interpretable patterns that describe the data.

Common data mining tasks

Classification [Predictive]
Clustering [Descriptive]
Association Rule Discovery [Descriptive]
Sequential Pattern Discovery [Descriptive]
Regression [Predictive]
Deviation Detection [Predictive]
