Analysts increasingly have the problem that they know that some data which they need for a project is available somewhere on the Web or in the corporate intranet, but they are unable to find the data. The goal of the 'Data Search for Data Mining' (DS4DM) project is to extend the data mining plattform Rapidminer with data search and data integration functionalities which enable analysts to find relevant data in potentially very large data corpora, and to semi-automatically integrate the discovered data with existing local data.
The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) under the funding scheme KMU-innovativ with a funding amount of 400k €.
