Information Extraction is the last class i have… this forth is about knowledge discovery and subjects around information extraction, data mining, information visualization,…

very interesting!

i have to say i’ve been interested in visualization for some time and this class sure feels like it’s going to be a happy marriage between something i’ve always been keen to know more about and the technical and technological aspects i never learned before…

this is also a discipline common to both ProDEI and MIEIC so there are more or less 30 of us in classes… again there are slight differences, specially because they – mieic – have an exam and prodei students have a “more substantial” paper to present and no exam…

we started by seeing the discipline’s website and then professor josé luis borges (jlb) gave an introduction to data mining.

i found quite interesting:

on my small and brief incursion on kdnuggets i found some links that seemed interesting… next week i shall put all these in my recent http://delicious.com/4phd

must see datasets to work with and think about a project…
