New Mac App KnowledgeMiner (yX) for Excel To Help Predict the Future

Apr 7, 2009. Denver, Colorado - KnowledgeMiner Software in partnership with Intel and Microsoft has released a major new data mining application for the Mac called KnowledgeMiner (yX) for Excel. KnowledgeMiner (yX) for Excel takes advantage of multi-core processors thru the use of parallelization to achieve speeds more then 600 times faster then previously.

Frank Lemke the creator of (yX) said "Speed is always a big factor in data mining. Our previous product KnowledgeMiner was quite remarkable but (yX) for Excel amazed even us with its speed. We want to thank Microsoft and Intel for their help in developing this product". (yX) is one of very few applications that currently take advantage of multiple cores on the Mac and the only Mac data mining application to do so.

The goal of using KnowledgeMiner (yX) for Excel is to obtain useful knowledge from large collections of data. The discovered knowledge can be equations describing properties of the data, frequently occurring patterns, clusterings of the information, etc. The technology for data collection has made it easy to create massive stockpiles of data and these are growing rapidly. On the other hand the technology of data analysis has lagged far behind and tends to be time consuming and expensive. KnowledgeMiner (yX) for Excel is aimed at making the process faster and easier.
