The research project 'Data Search for Data Mining' (DS4DM) is at the start of its second year. The project team had a plenary meeting at RapidMiner in Dortmund, Germany, on the 7th of October to brainstorm about the activities for the year ahead.
The DS4DM efforts in the coming year will focus on two main directions:
- Improving the interactive environment (i.e. the RapidMiner Data Search Extension) for data exploration, providing novel facilities to enable the user to manipulate discovered new data and
- Improving the core search and matching functionalities of the DS4DM backend, focusing on how to efficiently discover and exploit correspondences in the data.
