Subject: Two Crows "How to Successfully Mine Data"

Description: This two-day seminar will give you the
skills you need to use data mining optimally in making
business decisions. It's built around a series of case
studies that illustrate all the concepts and algorithms.
You will be an active participant in solving these cases.

The class will work together to use selected data mining tools to
explore the data, build predictive models using a variety of
algorithms, and evaluate the results. As the instructors demonstrate
how to apply decision trees, neural nets, logistic regression and
other methods, you'll learn the advantages and disadvantages of each.

But algorithms are only a tool -- the key to successful data mining is
 an in-depth understanding of your data. We'll teach you the
 recommended process for analyzing and manipulating data using the Two Crows
Data Mining Methodology

 You'll learn how to:

 Identify appropriate problems for data mining
 Design a database for data mining
 Analyze and transform the data
 Use algorithms to build an accurate predictive model
 Evaluate the quality of your models

The instructors, Dr. Richard De Veaux and Herbert Edelstein, are
recognized as being outstanding teachers as well as experts in data
