* Your assessment is very important for improving the work of artificial intelligence, which forms the content of this project
CPSC445/545 Introduction to Data Mining Spring 2008 Homework 1 (Due: Thursday, Feb 7, 2008) Suppose you are helping Ian Ayres prepare a second edition of his “Supercrunchers” book. Your assignment is to research and write a 2-3 page “brief” of an application of data mining (aka “supercrunching”) of interest (to you) that isn’t explicitly covered in the first edition. You can use search tools like Google to find relevant materials to be read and referenced in your brief. Your brief should be written in a style compatible with the book. For example, online digital music is very popular. A Google search of “music data mining” yields over 600,000 hits (clearly a very popular subject) including documents addressing analyses of music (eg clustering), marketing, and creation. These are really very different aspects of music. This suggests that a next phase of online digital music may involve data mining in some significant way. Music is but one example. For purposes of this assignment, please choose some topic of interest to you. It would be fine if your brief evolved into the theme for your term paper, though this is certainly not required. Email your brief to the TF, Jiang Du ([email protected]), no later than Thursday, Feb 7. Please note that we will post all the briefs on the course wiki so that everyone can benefit from your effort. Writing style and research content are both important and will be considered in your grade.
