Retake Exam: The second exam will take place on September 14th, 2020.
The lecture will be conducted online via Cisco Webex during the lecture slots (Tuesdays, 1.45 pm). Please join the video conference here: https://heiko-317.my.webex.com/heiko-317.my/j.php?MTID=m11fc300a81473dba84be771e8f23a6fa
Exercises will be provided. We are working on a solution for Q&A session for the exercises.
The Data Mining Cup has been postponed; the task will be out on April 14th. Please see the updated schedule below!
The exam will take place at the announced time and date (i.e., June 2nd, 10.30-11.30) as an online open book exam.
Building on the Data Mining fundamentals course, this course deepens the theory and practice of advanced data mining topics, such as:
The course consists of a lecture together with accompanying practical exercises as well as student team projects. In the exercises the participants will gather initial expertise in applying state of the art data mining tools on realistic data sets.
Like in the previous years, participants will take part in the annual Data Mining Cup (DMC), an international student competition in data mining, as part of the project work. In addition to the DMC submission, the approaches and results of the project have to be compiled into a written project report, and presented in a plenary session.
We'll have two alternatives for the exercise:
Both of these dates are offered, and you have to decide for one.
Unlike in the previous years (and unlike, e.g., Data Mining 1), the project is not graded. Your final grade will be based solely and entirely on the final exam.
Note:The lecture starts the lecture in the second week, i.e., on February, 18th. The exercises will then begin on February, 24th.
