This lecture covers many of the important techniques of machine learning (ML) and data mining (DM), such as decision tree learning, classification rule learning, association rule learning, Bayesian learning, regressions, instance-based learning, and clustering.
The goal of this lecture is to learn basic data mining methods using Weka (a data mining tool).
