Data Mining: Practical Machine Learning Tools and Techniques with
Java Implementations, by Ian H. Witten, Eibe Frank

Morgan Kaufmann Publishers, October 1999

This book offers a thorough grounding in machine learning concepts as
well as practical advice on applying machine learning tools and
techniques in real-world data mining situations. Inside, you'll
learn all you need to know about preparing inputs, interpreting
outputs, evaluating results, and the algorithmic methods at the heart
of successful data mining - including both tried-and-true techniques
of the past and Java-based methods at the leading edge of contemporary
research. If you're involved at any level in the work of extracting
usable knowledge from large collections of data, this clearly written
and effectively illustrated book will prove an invaluable resource.

Complementing the authors' instruction is a fully functional
platform-independent Java software system for machine learning,
available for download. Apply it to the sample data sets provided to
refine your data mining skills, apply it to your own data to discern
meaningful patterns and generate valuable insights, adapt it for your
specialized data mining applications, or use it to develop your own
machine learning schemes.
