About this book

R and Data Mining introduces using R for data mining. Data mining techniques are widely used in government agencies, banks, insurance, retail, telecom, medicine and research. Recently, there is an increasing tendency to do data mining with R, a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics. According to a poll by in early 2011, R is the 2nd popular tool for data mining work.

By introducing using R for data mining, R and Data Mining will have a broad audience from both academia and industry. It targets researchers in the field of data mining, postgraduate students who are interested in data mining, and data miners and analysts from industry. For example, many universities have courses on data mining, and the proposed book will be a useful reference for students learning data mining in those courses. There are also many training courses on data mining in industry, such as training by SAS and IBM on data mining.

R and Data Mining will be of interest to the course learners as well. It presents an introduction into using R for data mining applications, covering most popular data mining techniques. It provides code examples and data so that readers can easily learn the techniques. It features case studies in real-world applications to help readers apply the techniques in their work.
