Data mining is the process of semi-automatically analyzing large databases to find patterns that are valid, novel, useful, and understandable. It is also known as Knowledge Discovery in Databases (KDD). Data mining is a hot buzzword for a class of techniques that find patterns in data. It is a user-centric, interactive process which leverages analysis technologies and computing power. It is a group of techniques that find relationships that have not previously been discovered. It is not reliant on an existing database.
