Data pre-processing is a key element to improve the accuracy of data mining algorithms. In the pre-processing step, the data are treated in order to make the mining process achievable and effective. Data discretization and feature selection are two important tasks that can be performed prior to the learning phase and can significantly reduce the processing… CONTINUE READING
