The end of the year is soon here. It is thus time to make an overview of topics and discussions that have lead this blog during 2007. First, I want to thank each reader and each person commenting and therefore contributing the the life of this blog. I am also glad that many people subscribed to the feed through RSS or email notification. This is what I do with blogs I read. I read posts through my RSS feed reader and go to the blog only when I want to comment on a topic. Since Data Mining Research is not updated on a daily basis, I think RSS feed is a good alternative to direct visits.
Below, I summarized topics that lead DMR during 2007. The older (January 2007) come first:
- Plenty of new data mining blogs
- Limitations of data mining (finance, terrorism)
- Cluster validity (related to my thesis)
- Data mining book reviews
- SVM, neural networks and decision tree trends
- Feature selection (related to my thesis)
- DIKW hierarchy
- New Data Mining Search Engine
Moreover, certain posts were more popular than others. Here is a list of the five most popular posts of DMR for 2007 (according to the number of pageviews):
