Find interesting KDD resource pointers and mail to me. If you have time: Make your own KDD home page!

Make a proposal for your own examination(evaluation). One or more of:

Project: discuss project goals and plans with me(SA), staff the advisory group and prepare a (short or long) class presentation. Projects finishing after course ends should be presented and communicated to class participants by some WWW method.

Paper: Analyze a general problem area, and make your own review and conclusions. Preferably presented in class. Possible topics:
Do Bayesians really own the truth?
True and false knowledge in data mining.
Relations between user and miner
hundreds more!!!

Presentation: Choose an interesting paper or set of papers within the area of KDD-DM. Give a mini-seminar in class, consisting of a summary followed by analysis and discussion.

IT IS TIME to start thinking about examination ...... The available slots must fill up before they occur in real time. The examination is built on the idea of active and mutual learning.
