Welcome to Data Mining & Business Intelligence Lab

Machine learning is a crucial component of any intelligence system. It attempts to discover trends and regularities from data, past mistakes, and/or other sources, in order to improve the intelligence system. Machine learning has been applied successfully in many areas. Machine learning applications are also often called data mining.

People in the Data Mining and Business Intelligence Lab at the Department of Computer Science, Western University have been doing extensive research in machine learning and data mining for well over 10 years.
