The poll is now over. Thanks to the 162 participants. The question was:

Which kind of data would you like mining?

Here are the results:

Demographic data: 14%

Others: 35%

Search engine and financial data are the most trendy domains among participants. Bioinformatics is one category that has been cited for the “others” choice. I’m quite surprised by the few number of participants interested in mining data related to the US elections. Maybe due to the flood of information given by the medias…

The net sales in this business including Kensie is up 45% from the prior year. Sportswear is anchored by Calvin Klein. Now it is a tourist attraction, party venue, and the focus of many ghost hunts. This is by no means a comprehensive list, but is just to kickstart a spooky stay. Don’t just take my suggestions, or only use these listings. The Packers put RB Eddie Lacy on the IR last month with an ankle injury, so their leading rusher is James Starks, who has 100 yards rushing and is averaging 2.5 yards per carry. Their No. 19 rank in rushing (100.6 ypg) is greatly aided by Rodgers’ 259 yards on the ground. And the other thing that’s big about it is that they plan to incorporate a lot of outreach. The letter also talks about going into high schools, into colleges, into those locker rooms with those football teams and talking to boys and young men about the importance of not committing acts of aggression like domestic violence or sexual assault.

  2. I find the theme of this survey illustrates one of the gaps between data mining and the needs of businesses. Why would you like to mine data without an initial goal? Even if you want to explore a particular data set why is it interesting in the first place? How about a survey on questions that might be explored through data mining? The data used are secondary….

  4. Excellent comment! You’re right when you write that there is a gap between data mining and the real business needs.

    However, for me at least, data mining is not only a field in itself, but also a way to discover new domains. If you prefer, the question could be reformulated this way:

    “Knowing that there are business needs in all of these domains and that you can change your job tomorrow, in what domain would you like to work?”

    It is also the case that data miners can suggest new studies and thus “create” new goals.

    Regarding the survey you mentioned, I’m sure it would be very interesting…
