Abstract

The current explosion of data and information, mainly caused by data warehousing technologies as well as the extensive use of the Internet and its related technologies, has increased the urgent need for the development of techniques for intelligent data analysis. Data mining, which concerns the discovery and extraction of knowledge chunks from large data repositories, is aimed at addressing this need. Data mining automates the discovery of hidden patterns and relationships that may not always be obvious. Data mining tools include classification techniques (such as decision trees, rule induction programs and neural networks) (Han & Kamber, 2001), clustering algorithms and association rule approaches, amongst others.
