Data are accumulating at incredible rate in almost every sector of our life due to
technological advances in areas such as the internet, wireless telecommunication, pointof-sale devices, and data storage. A wealth of useful information is hidden in this vast
amount of data. Nuggets of meaningful correlations, patterns and trends can be
discovered using a variety of techniques in Data Mining to sifting through large amounts
of data stored in repositories and data warehouses. Some proven successful applications
of data mining in finance include forecasting stock market, currency exchange rate, bank
bankruptcies, understanding and managing financial risk, trading futures, credit rating,
loan management, bank customer profiling, and money laundering analyses.
Data mining techniques covered in this course may include, for example, k-Nearest
Neighbor algorithms, Classification and Regression Trees, Discrimination Analysis,
Logistic Regression, Artificial Neural Networks, Multiple Linear Regression, k-Means
Clustering, Hierarchical Clustering, Principal Components Analysis, Association Rules,
Collaborative Filtering, Genetic and Evolutionary Algorithms, and Support Vector
Machines and other Kernel-Based Learning Methods. The relative merits and shortcomings of the various methods will also be made.
