Data Mining is like Web 2.0, everyone has their own idea of what it is, and there are loads of people out there who don’t get either of these technologies, despite them having a big impact on our lives.
Books have been written on data mining and whole conferences devoted to it. However if you are new to the term or have been confused about it in the past, I would simply refer you to these videos on TechNet Spotlight from one of the best speakers on the subject, Rafal Lukawiecki , from Project Botticelli:
- Introduction to Data Mining
