Current Reading in Data Mining

I’m currently reading two interesting books about analytics and data mining. I will review these two books in the near future. Meanwhile, here is a few information about these books:

  • Analytics at Work (Davenport/Harris): I recently had the chance to receive an advance reader’s copy of this book (publication date: February 12th). Comparing to Competing on Analytics, Analytics at Work is for a larger audience since it explains how any company can improve in analytics. This book is easy to read and contains a lot of advices for anybody involved in this field.
  • Handbook of Statistical Analysis and Data Mining Applications (Nisbet/Elder/Miner): I heard a lot about this book. It seems to be THE new book about data mining. So I wanted to check by myself. I have to admit that it is a very interesting reading but since it is not theoretical, it is more beginner oriented. However, the applications and examples in SAS, Clementine and STATISTICA are very well presented. It is a new and fresh approach to data mining, which is very pleasant to read.

Even before making the final reviews, I can already recommend you these two books. Happy reading!

The weak PC industry has hit Mac sales, there was no iPad refresh in March, iPhone selling prices have been weak, and Apple really hasn’t launched any new major products. Revenue guidance has disappointed the past few quarters, which has forced analysts to continuously take down their estimates. The obvious place to look for an answer was my hormones, which necessitated several trips to have a seemingly impossible amount of blood drained out of my little body. Pages of tests later, it was determined there was nothing wrong with me (“Well, obviously something’s wrong nfl jerseys cheap with her, just nothing hormonal,” my impeccably sensitive doctor corrected). I was a perfectly healthy freak. I like seeing 1,000 feet forward on the night of a full moon. That’s God. That is the essence of existence. Test rugby thrives because the magnitude of the occasion makes any moment count. Tension rules. But below that, it too easily becomes a bore (made worse here by the lack of genuine hostility between franchises). 11. San Diego Chargers: Luke Joeckel, Cheap NFL Jerseys OT, Texas A Junior: Even though it looks like the Chargers are going to give Jared Gaither a chance to redeem himself in 2013, they are not going to risk going into the season with him as their only option at left tackle. Joeckel replica oakleys is a top athlete with the talent to anchor Phillip Rivers’ blindside for the next decade.. It is, as Hale and Cheap Football Jerseys many others would point out, getting out of control.If the New Zealand Secondary Schools Sports Council is as toothless as many believe, and if NZR isn’t going to crack down on those who break the rules, then Sport NZ yes, the Government must intervene.New Zealand rugby has stayed at the top in large part because of oakley outlet its egalitarian appeal. If, as Hale says, it suddenly cheap oakley sunglasses becomes a sport of the haves, then this country’s biggest advantage is gone. Rugby’s rich will have eaten itself.GIVE ‘EM A TASTE OF KIWI.As we bask in the glory of Lydia Ko’s breakthrough major win, it is time to reflect on the man who started it all. These are just a few of the causes and effects of deforestation. The consequences are very unpleasant as every form of life on earth is interlinked with one another. Not only do animals lose their homes, but humans dependent on the local ecology are also affected. The suit notes that in 1994, the NFL studied concussion research through funding the NFL Committee on Mild Traumatic Brain Injury. The committee’s cheap china jerseys published findings in 2004 showed “no evidence of worsening injury or chronic cumulative effects” from multiple concussions, the suit says. In addition, in a related study, the committee found that “many NFL players can be safely allowed to return to play” on the day of a concussion, if they are without symptoms and cleared by a doctor..

  4. Hey, great blog. I found your site via your review of Introduction to Data Mining on amazon. I think i’ll pick that up for my next book. I’m currious, in your review you said that it wasn’t a good book for learning about kernels. Do you have a suggestion for a introductory book on kernel methods?

  6. @Darckeen: Happy that you liked the blog! For kernel book I would suggest this one: But as I write it is quite technical. Any good data mining book will have a chapter on SVM or kernel methods in general.

Tell me what you're thinking...
