  • What kinds of questions can we answer with data mining
  • How data mining models work: the inputs, the outputs, and the nature of the predictive mechanism
  • Evaluation criteria: how predictive models can be assessed and their value measured
  • Specific background knowledge to prepare you to begin a data mining project.
