Abstract

Life is cumulative, so is data. In our life, people are overwhelmed by vast quantities of data collected for various purposes. However, little information is known from the huge data set. Data mining is used to discover the knowledge from the data sets. Data mining is a fast growing field, and it has various applications, such as in finance, marketing, and agriculture. It combines advanced statistical analysis. This independent study investigates several important data mining techniques such as linear regression, artificial neural networks and Bayesian learning.
