Looking for techniques for prediction and pattern discovery? In Part 1 of this tutorial, we discuss some of the data mining capabilities provided by SAS Enterprise Miner that are applicable to a wide variety of application areas. After a brief introduction to data mining, we will cover decision trees for classification tasks, regression for quantitative prediction, and K-means clustering for data segmentation and reduction. We will also discuss ways to evaluate different approaches to a data mining problem.
This session of the tutorial, which will be webcast, will be followed by a hands-on session at the MSI SDVL lab in the afternoon.
