The course aims to provide knowledge of theory behind different methods of data mining and develop practical skills in applying those methods on practice. Is is spanned around four "super problems" of data mining:

  • Clustering
  • Classification
  • Association pattern mining
  • Outlier analysis

Main topics of the course:

  • Data types and Data Preparation
  • Similarity and Distances, Association Pattern Mining,
  • Cluster Analysis, Classification, Outlier analysis
  • Data streams, Text Data, Time Series, Discrete Sequences,
  • Spatial Data, Graph Data, Web Data, Social Network Analysis


  • 3x mandatory closed book tests. Each test gives 10% of the final grade. One make-up attempt for each test.
  • 3x mandatory home assignments (Computational assignment +short write up.) Each assignment gives 10% of the final grade. Late (after deadline) assignments are accepted with penalty of 10% for each day except Saturdays and Sundays.
  • final exam (gives 40 % of the final grade): Written report on assigned topic + discussion with lecturer.

Exam prerequisites: both closed book tests are accepted (graded as 51 or higher), all 3 home assignments are accepted (graded as 51 or higher).

Home assignments, code examples, data files and useful links will be distributed by means of environment. Course enrollment (to process will be conducted during the first lecture/practice.
