Data Mining and Neural Networks

Module code: MA3022

This module will provide a comprehensive grounding in the structure of the data mining process and explain the basic notations and operations. During this module you will familiarise yourself with types of data mining problems and select the necessary approach to its solutions, from evaluation and cleaning of the dataset to selection of the algorithms for data analysis. This module will also cover the basic methods and algorithms for data analysis, and how to construct basic neural networks for data analysis.
