The main objective of information fusion techniques in data mining is to show that final information generated to be of superior quality and more meaningful, than the information available from the actual (primary) sources. Fusion, by definition, requires a qualitative difference between the final output and the output of the original sources. Information fusion is the process of acquisition, filtering, correlation and integration of relevant information from various sources into one representational format that is appropriate for deriving decisions regarding the interpretation of the information. In theory, the fusion of redundant information from different sources can reduce redundancy and overall uncertainty and thus increase the accuracy of the system.
