Talk given at TEDxGeorgeMasonU, April 6th 2013. Read full bios and event information at www.TEDxGeorgeMasonU.com Dr. Kirk Borne is a Multidisciplinary Data Scientist and an Astrophysicist. He is Professor of Astrophysics and Computational Science in the George Mason University School of Physics, Astronomy, and Computational Sciences (SPACS). He received his B.S. degree in physics from LSU and his Ph.D. in astronomy from Caltech. After 20 years working in NASA, he changed course and became a data scientist in the then new field of 'Data Mining'. His TEDx talk covers some of the basic ideas behind data mining, and how it influences us every day. If you are a Twitter user, you can follow him there as he actively tweets about Big Data, Data Science, and Astronomy under the handle @KirkDBorne....
NJIT School of Management professor Stephan P Kudyba describes what data mining is and how it is being used in the business world.
Machine Learning and data mining is part SCIENCE (ML algorithms, optimization), part ENGINEERING (large-scale modelling, real-time decisions), part PROCESS (data understanding, feature engineering, modelling, evaluation, and deployment), and part ART. In this talk, Dr. Shailesh Kumar focuses on the "ART of data mining" - the little things that make the big difference in the quality and sophistication of machine learning models we build. Using real-world analytics problems from a variety of domains, Shailesh shares a number of practical learnings in: (1) The art of understanding the data better - (e.g. visualization of text data in a semantic space) (2) The art of feature engineering - (e.g. converting raw inputs into meaningful and discriminative features) (3) The art of dealing with nu...
This is a powerpoint/video compilation I made for a project in my Systems Engineering class. It is a tutorial of Data Mining in the Retail Industry and includes a trip I took to Harris Teeter to prove the importance of Market Basket Analysis in the real world.

There is an abundance of data in social media sites (Wikipedia, Facebook, Instagram, etc.) which can be accessed through web APIs. But how do we know that the data from the Wikipedia article on "Golden Gate Bridge" goes along with the data from "Golden Gate Bridge" Facebook page? This represents an important question about integrating data from various sources. In this talk, I'll outline important aspects of structured data mining, integration and entity resolution methods in a scalable system.
Using public social media data from twitter and Facebook, actions and announcements of terrorists – in this case ISIS – can be monitored and even be predicted. With his project #DataShield Wassim shares his idea of having a tool to identify oncoming threats and attacks in order to protect people and to induce preventive actions. Wassim Zoghlami is a Tunisian Computer Engineering Senior focussing on Business Intelligence and ERP with a passion for data science, software life cycle and UX. Wassim is also an award winning serial entrepreneur working on startups in healthcare and prevention solutions in both Tunisia and The United States. During the past years Wassim has been working on different projects and campaigns about using data driven technology to help people working to uphold human...

A look at how monitoring patterns of behavior online can be construed as subversive behavior. Will this become the truncheon of a world police state?
Data Centre Green Tech & Data Centre Strategics Conference Shanghai 2010 Data Mining is a research emphasis on discovering patterns from a huge data set. In this talk, we will have some intuitive understanding of this technology and address its usefulness in the real-world applications and the future world. Prof. Zengchang Qin (Ph.D.) Associate Professor Intelligent Computing and Machine Learning Lab School of Automation Science and Electrical Engineering Beihang University
How to use web scraping to extract data from a website
Data Mining ist die Technik um strategische Informationen aus Big Data zu extrahieren. eoda Chief Data Scientist Oliver Bracht erklärt die Grundlagen des Data Mining und das Vorgehen anhand von branchenübergreifenden Use Cases aus Industrie, Vertrieb und Marketing. Darüber hinaus gibt Bracht Handlungsempfehlungen für Unternehmen, die Big Data für sich nutzen wollen. Das Video ist entstanden im Rahmen eines Vortrags bei der German Graduate School of Management and Law.
