The Data Mine
This is The Data Mine
, a online resource for people interested in data mining. It is a Wiki, which means that anyone can add or edit information.
Data Mining Software
is one of the most popular sections, with information on data mining companies and organizations
coming a close second.
History of the Data Mine
The Data Mine was launched in April 1994, when I (Andy Pryke
) was in the early stages of my Ph.D. in data mining
. The initial site had a single page with links to all six (yes 6) references to Data Mining I could find on the newly created "World Wide Web".
The addition of Perl scripts written by my collegue Andy Wood allowed readers to automatically add information to the site. The last version of this incarnation of the site had around 20 pages.
In October 2001, The Data Mine
was converted to a Wiki Wiki system, which allows quick and easy updating and editing by users. It has been re-launched in 2004 and again in March 2008. There are currently more than 500 pages of information on data mining.
