CS/CMPE 636 –
Advanced Data Mining
Outline
Description

Cover recent developments in some key areas of data mining:







Mining data streams
Cluster analysis
Web mining
Prepare students for research work in data mining.
Follow a lecture-discussion format where topics are introduced
and techniques critically discussed. The majority of the material
discussed will be derived from research publications. Students
will be expected to read before coming to class and participate in
the discussions.
Emphasis will be placed on the design and implementation of
efficient and scalable algorithms for data mining.
The course project will require students to research, design,
implement, and present their solution to a data mining problem.


Quizzes
 Most
quizzes will be announced a day or two in advance
 Unannounced quizzes are also possible

Sharing
 No
copying is allowed for assignments. Discussions are
encouraged; however, you must do and submit your own
work
 Violators can face mark reduction and/or reported to
Disciplinary Committee

Plagiarism
 Do
NOT pass someone else’s work as yours! Write in your
words and cite the reference. This applies to code as well.

How to contact me?
 Office
hours: 10.00 to 12.00 MW (office: 429)
 E-mail: [email protected]
 By appointment: e-mail me for an appointment before
coming

Philosophy
 Knowledge
cannot be taught; it is learned.
 Be excited. That is the best way to learn. I cannot teach
everything in class. Develop an inquisitive mind, ask
questions, and go beyond what is required.
 I don’t believe in strict grading. But… there has to be a way
of rewarding performance.
