          Have you ever wondered about “people patterns”? People in tropical climates wear cotton, and those in cooler climates wear wool. This is a consumer pattern that is true globally. Easy right?

But where am I getting to with this?  Wait,  I will explain

          But first of all an interesting question for you. Imagine a shop that sells wool clothing. Does it make sense to open a shop in Goa? Or in Delhi? Or should this business turn to selling linen and cotton clothing in coastal climates? cost for a region? Shouldn't they be spinning? Can this company open a business at Goa Airport if Goa locals travel to colder climates? If you open a business at the airport, will you have enough revenue to make a profit?
To find all of these answers, it takes a lot of testimonials, market trend analysis, government guidelines, fees, and a lot more to know about them. What I mean to say is that these patterns exist naturally, but for companies, these patterns are always the things that influence decisions and they are very important to acquire.
To arrive at the right decision, businesses have to use information or data in the right way. And how does this data come into useful hands?  Yes! You guessed it right. By Data Mining.
In order to make the right decision, companies must use information or data correctly. And how does this data get into useful hands? Yes indeed! You guessed it right, from data mining.
In today's world where some companies only use data, others rely solely on business decisions. Every day, more and more companies are using data mining, data analytics, and machine learning to improve everything from manufacturing to sales to marketing.
So in today's blog, I am telling you what data mining is exactly and what a data scientist does in the field of data mining.
Data mining is the process of collecting large amounts of data, analyzing it and finally finding solutions to existing problems. The name comes from the similarities between finding valuable information in a large database and mining for minerals on earth. Both processes require the sieving of huge amounts of data in order to find hidden values. Not only discovering solutions, but data mining can also help anticipate future risks. and even help find new business opportunities.
In the past, people had to encounter problems, risks, or opportunities in real life, or they would have foreseen them; Ultimately, the solution would be based on the skills or intuition of the team or employees. too many human mistakes. But with computer modelling, these errors are minimized to almost zero. And data mining isn't just more accurate ... it's also a lot more efficient. More work in less time. It's a general win-win situation.
Data mining professionals generally achieve reliable and timely results by following a structured and repeatable process that includes the following five steps:

Business Understanding

Business Understanding | insideAIML
          Understanding the Business, what the long and short term goals are and what the what are they are the goals of decision-makers?

Understanding Your Data

Understanding Your Data  | InsideAIML
          Determining What Kind of Data Is Needed to Meet These Goals Which metrics are really showing progress and which are not to be considered? When selling clothes, do you have to pay attention to the price of the fabric and the cost of manufacture, or the expected walks in the store, or a combination of both? Think about it.

Data Preparation

Data Preparation | insideAIML
          Prepare your data and present it so that everyone in the conference room can understand it. Don't use jargon. What works is simple, easy-to-understand language. As a data analyst, a big part of your job is breaking down complex metrics into easy-to-understand terms.


Data Modeling | InsideAIML
          Histograms, Pie Charts, Graphs, or Just Words How can you model your data to show patterns? Incidentally, data visualization is a subset of data studies where people learn to represent data in an efficient and coherent model. And remember, any data analyst must have a solid understanding of visualization to become a professional.

Commonly Used Data Mining Tools

  • Repidminer
  • SAS
  • R
  • Apache Spark
  • Python
  • Big ML
  • Tableau
  • NLTK
        All of these steps taken together can help data scientists find hidden patterns, tips, and solutions based on the data isn't enough; Gathering clues from samples in order to obtain actionable information is the main job of data miners and scientists.
