The tactical and methodological for Level II is put into action through team-driven, live data mining exercises. Review sessions then reveal real-world obstacles, breakthroughs and results from which to interpret, learn and apply. Through hands-on workshop data mining methods and techniques presented in Level II are applied to real-world data.
Students should have equivalent experience to Data Mining I & II.
