Over the past few decades, data mining has emerged as a field of research critical to understanding and assimilating the large stores of data accumulated by corporations, government agencies, and laboratories. Early on, mining algorithms and techniques were limited to relational data sets coming directly from Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) systems, or from a consolidated enterprise data warehouse. However, recent work has begun to extend the limits of data mining strategies to include “semi-structured data such as HTML and XML texts, symbolic sequences, ordered trees and relations represented by advanced logics” (Washio & Motoda, 2003).
