A Complete Study on the Challenges in Mining Large Amount of Mixed-Mode Data

J. Hemagowri, N.V. Veenaa Deeve


The data mining is helping in many fields to analyze vast data in an efficient manner.  As the amount of data that are available in the real world problems to be dealt with is very large the importance of data mining is also increasing.  The various schemes in which a data can be analyzed and handled are statistical analysis and data mining.  The data mining is actually suitable when the size of the data set is large. There are different ways in handling the data set.  But if the data set which is picked up is a mixed data set then the problems will also be more in performing the classification and also to form a pattern.  Hence the general study on data sets and the mixed mode data sets are done so that the problems faced while mining the data can be dealt with in an efficient manner.
