Data mining, especially as applied to social science data, is a rapidly changing and emerging field.
Data mining (DM) is the name given to a variety of computer-intensive techniques for discovering structure and for analyzing patterns in data. Using those patterns, DM can create predictive models, or classify things, or identify  different groups or clusters of cases within data. Data mining uses machine learning and predictive analytics that are already widely used in technical areas and business and are starting to spread into social science and other areas  of research. This talk will give an introduction to machine learning techniques, its challenges, applications, and pitfalls closely related to social sciences.
