Join Ron Davis for an in-depth discussion in this video Types of data-mining algorithms, part of Learning Excel Data-Mining.
- Types of Data-Mining Algorithms.…Classification.…This is probably the most popular data-mining algorithm,…simply because the results are very easy to understand.…Decision trees, which are a type of classification,…try to predict value of a column or columns…based on the relationships…between the columns you have identified.…Decision trees also determine…which input columns are most highly correlated…to your prediction column.…Use the decision tree algorithm…when you want to try to predict…if a customer will buy your product…or what characteristics make a person…potentially a good customer.…
For example, if you want to determine which customers…you should send coupons to,…then a decision tree may help you decide…if a potential person has the qualities…and characteristics of past customers.…Regression.…This algorithm is used to predict continuous variables…using continuous inputs.…Remember when we talked about attributes,…there were discrete and there were continuous?…Regression needs continuous.…Use a regression algorithm when you need to compute a trend,…
