Integrating the Development of Data Mining and Data Warehouses Via Model-Driven Engineering
Source: University of Alicante
Data mining is one of the most important analysis techniques to automatically extract knowledge from large amount of data. Nowadays, data mining is based on low-level specifications of the employed techniques typically bounded to a specific analysis platform. Therefore, data mining lacks a modelling architecture that allows analysts to consider it as a truly software-engineering process. Bearing in mind this situation, the paper proposes a model-driven approach which is based on a conceptual modelling framework for data mining, and a set of model transformations to automatically generate both the data under analysis (that is deployed via data-warehousing technology) and the analysis models for data mining (tailored to a specific platform).
