Elder Research will be presenting a 2-day course, “Tools for Discovering Patterns in Data,” on September 13-14 in Charlottesville, Virginia. Drawing on 20 years of experience, Dr. John Elder will explain the inner workings of techniques employed by experts to solve challenging problems.
Attendees will receive a copy of the new book, co-authored by the instructor, Handbook of Statistical Analysis and Data Mining Applications. This ~900-page hardback is designed to help practitioners achieve success with data mining and includes valuable fully-working 90-day versions of powerful data mining software from three leading vendors.
The course is practical, and experience-based, and demystifies data mining with clarity and humor. Learn to isolate the essential aspects of a problem and select and combine appropriate software tools to find useful patterns in noisy, incomplete data. Practical examples are drawn from successful consulting engagements in a wide range of fields — including investment modeling, fraud detection, biometrics, credit scoring, CRM, national security, drug efficacy, process optimization, and image recognition. The course contains the popular segment, “Top 10 Data Mining Mistakes, and How to Avoid Them,” vendor-neutral discussions of the strengths of leading software tools, and clear explanations of the essential technologies of text mining, resampling statistics, ensembles of models, and scientific visualization.
