In this work we show the research track and the current results about the application of structured parallel programming tools to develop scalable data-mining applications. We discuss the exploitation of the divide and conquer nature of the well known C4.5 classi cation algorithm in spite of its in-core memory requirements. The opportunity of applying external memory techniques to manage the data is advocated. Current results of the experiments are reported. The main research goal of our group… CONTINUE READING
