The data and text mining focus area has the objective of developing new techniques for knowledge discovery and to improve existing techniques. The focus area is also active in applying data mining techniques to solve real-world problems in consultation to South African industries.
Some of the questions being addressed are how to mine knowledge from data with continuous classes, how to cope with extremely large databases, more efficient data clustering methods and how to extract knowledge in environments where data changes over time. Tools are currently under development which address these questions.
