In the age of the Internet, intranets and large computing systems, the amount of stored and processed data is growing exponentially. This data offers enormous possibilities for finding unexpected correlations from these information sources. Data mining is part of the knowledge discovery process, which involves the search for valuable information from large volumes of data. This process is a co-operative effort involving both humans and computers. Humans describe problems and set analysis goals, while computers scan through large amounts of data looking for information that matches these goals. VTT Information Technology is actively involved in various application areas of data mining techniques.
