Assignment and final examination.
Completion parts must belong to the same implementation
Learning outcomes: The student can describe the difference between data and knowledge mining. The student can list and describe OLAP, association, predictive modeling, modeling, regression analysis and cluster analysis. The student can analyse the own problem and apply the lectured method on it. The student is capable to analyse the proposed solutions.
