Big Data Mining

The task of extracting useful and valuable information from massive datasets.

Mining is perceived as useful because with machine learning and algorithms one can not only detect patterns, and therefore deducible knowledge. In addition to patterns, data mining can detect other important elements, like abnormal patterns, and from a number of these can make predictive guesses.

In order to acquire this information, either supervised or unsupervised learning methods can be used.
