Top 10 data mining algorithms in plain English

Top 10 data mining algorithms in plain English by Raymond Li.

From the post:

Today, I’m going to explain in plain English the top 10 most influential data mining algorithms as voted on by 3 separate panels in this survey paper.

Once you know what they are, how they work, what they do and where you can find them, my hope is you’ll have this blog post as a springboard to learn even more about data mining.

What are we waiting for? Let’s get started!

Raymond covers:

  1. C4.5
  2. k-means
  3. Support vector machines
  4. Apriori
  5. EM
  6. PageRank
  7. AdaBoost
  8. kNN
  9. Naive Bayes
  10. CART
  11. Interesting Resources
  12. Now it’s your turn…

Would be nice if we all had a similar ability to explain algorithms!

Enjoy!
