PAKDD'11 Tutorial: Handling Concept Drift: Importance, Challenges and Solutions, Shenzen, China

Event Date: 
27 May 2011 - 14:06

Handling Concept Drift: Importance, Challenges and Solutions

Tutorial at PAKDD'11

Shenzen China, 27 May 2011

In the real world data often arrives in streams and is evolving over time. As a result predictions may become less accurate as time passes. Therefore, learning models need to adapt to changes quickly and accurately. The tutorial aims to provide a unifying view on the basic and applied concept drift research in data mining and related areas.

Presenters: Albert Bifet (University of Waikato, New Zealand), João Gama (University of Porto, Portugal), Mykola Pechenizkiy (Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands), Indre Zliobaite (Bournemouth University, UK).

Workshop on Information Discovery and Data Analytics Made Easy, Bournemouth, UK

Event Date: 
18 May 2011 (All day)

Information Discovery and Data Analytics Made Easy

Workshop by Prof. Michael R. Berthold, Konstanz University, Germany

Bournemouth University, Poole House, Talbot Campus, PG10, Bournemouth UK, 18th May 2011

 

The purpose of the event is to present methods and tools that can be used in processing large datasets and how to discover knowledge from them. Michael Berthold is a coordinator of the project BISON that is a research project funded by EC under the 7FP. He is also one of the founders of KNIME which is a user-friendly and comprehensive open-source data integration, processing, analysis, and exploration platform. So the goal of the workshop is also to start collaboration with Konstanz University and find out more about EC 7FP projects.

AGENDA:

10.00 – 11.00 From Pattern Discovery to Discovery Support: Creativity and Heterogeneous Information Networks

11.00 – 11.30 Coffee break

11.30 – 12.30 KNIME. Integrating Data, Tools, and Science

12.30 – 13.00 Q&A Session

13.00 – 14.00 Lunch
