What is Knowledge Discovery in Databases (KDD)

Handbook of Research on Public Information Technology
KDD is the nontrivial process of identifying valid, novel, potentially useful, and ultimately understandable patterns in data (Fayyad, 1996).

Massive quantities of information continue accumulating at about 1.5 billion gigabytes per year in numerous repositories held at news agencies, at libraries, on corporate intranets, on personal computers, and on the Web. A large portion of all available information exists in the form of text. Researchers, analysts, editors, venture capitalists, lawyers, help desk specialists, and even students are faced with text analysis challenges. Text mining tools aim at discovering knowledge from textual databases by isolating key bits of information from large amounts of text, identifying relationships among documents. Text mining technology is used for plagiarism and authorship attribution, text summarization and retrieval, and deception detection.

Fuzzy Sequential Patterns for Quantitative Data Mining
KDD is the automated process of turning raw data into useful information by which intelligent computer systems sift and sort through data to look for patterns or to predict trends. It is generally considered to be the nontrivial extraction of implicit, previously unknown, and potentially useful information from data.

Frequent Itemset Mining and Association Rules
A paradigm for the analysis of large datasets. The process is cyclic and iterative, with several steps including data preparation, analysis, and interpretation. KDD uses various methods from such diverse fields such as machine learning, artificial intelligence, pattern recognition, database management and design, statistics, expert systems, and data visualization.

Use of Compensatory Fuzzy Logic for Knowledge Discovery Applied to the Warehouse Order Picking Problem for Real-Time Order Batching
The knowledge discovery can be defined as the non-trivial process of identifying valid, potentially useful and understandable patterns from a large amount of data. The fundamental objective of the KDD is to discover useful, valid, relevant and new knowledge through the use of various algorithms, that allows the improvement of processes.
