Today and tomorrow we will do a workshop on datamining in the lab. We have some national and international participants as well as researchers from various departments here at the university. Quite an interesting mix and, for instance, today we will discuss both chemometrics and dialectological data. We will have a reception at the BildMuseet and there Christina McPhee will also tell us a bit about her video installation that is showing there (the installation opens today).
Finding patterns in large data sets relates to many disciplines and businesses, of course, and datamining represents a set of methodologies and problems that bridge disciplines in interesting ways. We are also interested in visualization, datamining interfaces and the issue of “data shadows”.
