Data mining is a process of discovering new, unexpected, valuable patterns from existing databases (Frawley, Piatetsky-Shapiro, & Matheus, 1991). Though data mining is the evolution of a field with a long history, the term itself was only introduced relatively recently, in the 1990s. Data mining is best described as the union of historical and recent developments in statistics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. These techniques are then used together to study data and find previously hidden trends or patterns within.
