Course content
The course provides basic information in the areas of data mining, data analysis, neural networks and bioinspirovaných calculations. Presented theoretical knowledge and procedures are the basis for independent experiments the students with the analysis and data processing, possibly with the implementation of selected methods. Syllabus: 1. Defining the problem of Data Mining. 2. Input data, data types from the formal and semantic. Coarse filtration. Missing data, dichotomization, categorization. 3. Using the methods of linear algebra (PCA) 4. The survey of similarities and dissimilarities objects - coefficients of association and metrics 5. Cluster analysis, non-hierarchical methods, hierarchical methods, presentation and interpretation of results. 6. Evolutionary Computation. Basic concepts: individual, population, fitness, objective function, representation of individuals. Objective function, design principles, function testing, computational complexity of algorithms and theoretical limits 7. Selected stochastic algorithms method local search algorithm blind, climbing algorithm, simulated annealing. 8. Ant Colony Optimization (Ant Colony Optimization) 9. Models neurons. Neuron 1st generation. Neurons 2nd generation - Perceptron. Perceptron adaptation. 10. Multi-layer topology. Backpropagation method. 11. Kohonen learning and self-organizing neural network SOM. Genetic algorithms in neural networks adapt. 12. Decision trees, association rules 13. Visual Programming Languages in GIS
