Date: Wed, 27 Oct 1999 10:33:09 +1000 From: Prof Joachim Diederich J.Diederich@ikdi.com.au Subject: Explorations in Data Mining for Computational Finance INTERNATIONAL KNOWLEDGE DISCOVERY INSTITUTE (IKDI) www.ikdi.com.au www.ikdi.de Explorations in Data Mining for Computational Finance A half-day tutorial Muenster (Germany) 18 December 1999 Registration and Information: firstname.lastname@example.org This tutorial offers an introduction to data mining and knowledge discovery in databases for computational finance. Data mining is the step-wise process of automating knowledge extraction from databases. The objective is to find comprehensible rules and relations in datasets. Often these rules are abstractions and require the application of various machine learning techniques including artificial neural networks (ANNs). This tutorial will focus on machine learning and artificial neural network techniques for the extraction of knowledge from large financial databases. The presentation will include a discussion of case studies and a demonstration of data mining tools.
