Desktop Survival Guide
by Graham Williams
In addition to descriptions of approaches and techniques for data mining, as well as modern tools for data mining, we provide a very practical resource with actual example and R code that will be useful in delivering on data mining projects. We have chosen open source software for the examples presented in the book. Anyone can obtain the appropriate software for free from the Internet and quickly set up their computer with a very sophisticated data mining environment, whether they use GNU/Linux, Unix, Mac/OSX, or even MS/Windows.
