Module description

The module introduces a range of state-of-the-art techniques in the fields of statistical pattern analysis and data mining. The 'information revolution' has generated large amounts of data, but valuable information is often hidden and hence unusable. Pattern analysis and data mining techniques seek to unveil hidden patterns in the data that can help us to refine web search, construct more robust spam filters, or uncover principal trends in the evolution of a variety of stock indexes.
