Data Mining / Machine Learning

Data mining means to retrieve useful information from data with respect to a data model. Machine learning seeks to identify behavior patterns in data, and them build various models based on observed patterns.

Data mining has its strong focus on working with industrial problems and getting practical solutions. Therefore it concerns with not only data size (large data), but also data processing speed (stream data). Below shows a general overview of some data mining tasks, algorithms and examples.DataMining Tasks

Data Mining uses Machine Learning algorithms to mine big datasets.

One practical application to Data Mining is in the area of Bioinformatics and Life Sciences which have large-scale genetic/genomic data sets. A worth mentioning useful resource for the analysis of such genetic/genomic data with R is the Bioconductor. One such mining of genomic databases with R can be seen here.
