The SPMF data mining software is a popular open-source software for discovering patterns in data and for performing other data mining tasks. Typically, to run SPMF, Java must have been installed on a computer. However, it is possible to run … Continue reading

In this blog post, I will introduce the popular data mining task of clustering (also called cluster analysis). I will explain what is the goal of clustering, and then introduce the popular K-Means algorithm with an example. Moreover, I will briefly explain how an open-source Java implementation of … Continue reading

This blog post briefly explain how time series data mining can be performed with the Java open-source data mining library SPMF (v.2.06). It first explain what is a time series and then discuss how data mining can be performed on time series. What is … Continue reading

This blog post is to let you know that I have just published a new version of the SPMF open-source Java data mining library (0.98) that offers a new window for visualizing the patterns found by data mining algorithms. This … Continue reading

In this blog post, I will talk about the well-known open-source library of data mining algorithms implemented in Java, which I am the founder of. I will give a brief overview of its history, discuss some lessons learned from the development of … Continue reading

In this blog post, I will give an introduction about a popular problem in data mining, which is called “high-utility itemset mining” or more generally utility mining. I will give an overview of this problem, explains why it is interesting, and provide source code of … Continue reading

Today, I will show how to use the open-source SPMF data mining software to discover sequential patterns in web log data. Then, I will show to how visualize the frequent sequential patterns found, using GraphViz. Step 1 : getting the … Continue reading

Hi everyone, In this blog post, I will discuss how I have applied an open-source tool that is named Code Analyzer ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/codeanalyze-gpl/ ) to analyze the source code of my open-source data mining software named SPMF. I have applied … Continue reading

Hi, I have made a map to visualize the relationship between the 52 different data mining algorithms offered in the SPMF data mining software. You can view it in PNG format by clicking on the picture below: Or you can … Continue reading
