Glossary » data mining

data mining

the use of statistical and visualization techniques to uncover trends and relationships within massive databases. Data mining is common with financial data, medical data, census data, and across the web as a whole. The trends sought after are often non-obvious and require substantial data manipulation, either through a directed search to test a particular hypothesis or through less bounded exploration to find unexpected results.
