Subject: Data, Text, and Web Data Mining -- Megaputer seminar, Oct 20-21, Orlando, FL
Data, Text, and Web Data Mining Megaputer Intelligence seminar Dates October 20-21, 2000 -- Orlando, FL Outline At the seminar you will learn answers to important questions related to the analysis of numerical, textual, and web-generated data. We will outline our vision of the coming transformation of knowledge discovery into a mass market technology operating behind the scenes to optimize diverse business tasks, especially in the world of e-Business. We will teach you the best practices in applying the data mining system PolyAnalyst and the text mining system TextAnalyst to real world problems. Finally, we will be happy to answer your questions and discuss your project after the seminar, aiming to provide you with hints and guidance best suited for your data analysis project. Q. How do I integrate data mining tools with an RDBMS? A. The latest technology for simple integration of data mining technology with external applications is the new SQL-based protocol, OLE DB for Data Mining. PolyAnalyst is the first data mining system in the market to implement the support for this new protocol. We will present the foundations of OLE DB for Data Mining and demonstrate, with hands-on examples, the convenience and power of the new protocol. Q. How do I capture and fully utilize web site visitor information in order to increase the value of each visitor in e-Business? A. E-Business embraces e-Commerce, e-Marketing, e-CRM, etc. E-Business will benefit tremendously from incorporating data mining techniques in the online business cycle. We first outline this new competitive advantage and set goals for web data mining. Next we discuss what data to capture, how to do this, how to then analyze this data, and finally how to integrate the results in a customer relationship management e-system. Different vendors are taking the first steps in developing data mining tools for E-business tasks. We outline existing strategies and shortcomings. Q. How do I discover knowledge contained in texts and other unstructured data forms? A. Articles, e-mails, web pages, and memorandums all contain important information that we would like to distill, store, and use for making informed decisions. Techniques for analyzing texts differ significantly from those designed for analyzing relational databases. Here we discuss different existing approaches to intelligent text processing and present capabilities and foundations of an innovative text mining tool, TextAnalyst.
