It’s been awhile since I wrote the last blog on the data mining / machine learning algorithms. I described the Neural Network algorithm. In addition, it is a good time to write another post in order to remind the readers of the two upcoming seminars about the algorithms I have in Oslo, Friday, September 2nd, 2016, and in Cambridge, Thursday, ...

I got some questions about virtual machine / notebook setup for my Business Intelligence in SQL Server 2016 DevWeek postconference workshop. I am writing this blog because I want to spread this information as quickly as possible.
There will be no labs during the seminar, no time for this. However, I will make all of the code available. ...

A neural network is a powerful data modeling tool that is able to capture and represent complex input/output relationships. The motivation for the development of neural network technology stemmed from the desire to develop an artificial system that could perform "intelligent" tasks similar to those performed by the human brain. Neural ...

Decision Trees is a directed technique. Your target variable is the one that holds information about a particular decision, divided into a few discrete and broad categories (yes / no; liked / partially liked / disliked, etc.). You are trying to explain this decision using other gleaned information saved in other variables (demographic data, ...

I am continuing with my data mining and machine learning algorithms series. Naive Bayes is a nice algorithm for classification and prediction.
It calculates probabilities for each possible state of the input attribute, given each state of the predictable attribute, which can later be used to predict an outcome of the predicted attribute based on ...

Support vector machines are both, unsupervised and supervised learning models for classification and regression analysis (supervised) and for anomaly detection (unsupervised). Given a set of training examples, each marked as belonging to one of categories, an SVM training algorithm builds a model that assigns new examples into one category. An SVM ...

Principal component analysis (PCA) is a technique used to emphasize the majority of the variation and bring out strong patterns in a dataset. It is often used to make data easy to explore and visualize. It is closely connected to eigenvectors and eigenvalues.
A short definition of the algorithm: PCA uses an orthogonal transformation to convert ...

Hierarchical clustering could be very useful because it is easy to see the optimal number of clusters in a dendrogram and because the dendrogram visualizes the clusters and the process of building of that clusters. However, hierarchical methods don’t scale well. Just imagine how cluttered a dendrogram would be if 10,000 cases would be shown on ...

Clustering is the process of grouping the data into classes or clusters so that objects within a cluster have high similarity in comparison to one another, but are very dissimilar to objects in other clusters. Dissimilarities are assessed based on the attribute values describing the objects.
There are a large number of clustering algorithms. The ...

Data mining is the most advanced part of business intelligence. With statistical and other mathematical algorithms, you can automatically discover patterns and rules in your data that are hard to notice with online analytical processing and reporting. However, you need to thoroughly understand how the data mining algorithms work in order to ...
