More Data Mining with Weka

This course follows on from Data Mining with Weka and provides a deeper account of data mining tools and techniques. Again the emphasis is on principles and practical data mining using Weka, rather than mathematical theory or advanced details of particular algorithms. Students will work with multimillion-instance datasets, classify text, experiment with clustering, association rules, neural networks, and much more.

The 5-week course will begin on 28 April 2014. Students should have completed Data Mining with Weka, or have equivalent knowledge of the subject. A detailed syllabus is available.
