This talk will present the following top-10 data mining algorithms identified at IEEE ICDM '06: C4.5, K-Means, SVM, Apriori, EM, PageRank, AdaBoost, kNN, Naive Bayes, and CART. For each algorithm, we provide a description of the algorithm and discuss its impact and the current and further research on the algorithm.
Xindong Wu is a Professor and the Chair of the Department of Computer Science at the University of Vermont, USA, and also a Visiting Chair Professor of Data Mining in the Department of Computing at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, China. He holds a PhD in Artificial Intelligence from the University of Edinburgh, Britain. His research interests include data mining, knowledge-based systems, and Web information exploration. He has published over 160 refereed papers in these areas in various journals and conferences, including IEEE TKDE, TPAMI, ACM TOIS, DMKD, KAIS, IJCAI, AAAI, ICML, KDD, ICDM, and WWW, as well as 18 books and conference proceedings. He won the IEEE ICTAI-2005 Best Paper Award and the IEEE ICDM-2007 Best Theory/Algorithms Paper Runner Up Award. Prof. Wu is the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering (TKDE, by the IEEE Computer Society), the founder and current Steering Committee Chair of the IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM), the founder and a current Honorary Editor-in-Chief of Knowledge and Information Systems (KAIS, by Springer), the Founding Chair (2002-2006) of the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Intelligent Informatics (TCII), and a Series Editor of the Springer Book Series on Advanced Information and Knowledge Processing (AI&KP). He was Program Committee Chair for ICDM '03 (the 2003 IEEE International Conference on Data Mining) and Program Committee Co-Chair for KDD-07 (the 13th ACM SIGKDD International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining). He is the 2004 ACM SIGKDD Service Award winner, the 2006 IEEE ICDM Outstanding Service Award winner, and a 2005 Chaired Professor in the Cheung Kong (or Yangtze River) Scholars Programme at the Hefei University of Technology sponsored by the Ministry of Education of China and the Li Ka Shing Foundation. He has been an invited/keynote speaker at numerous international conferences including NSF-NGDM'07, PAKDD-07, IEEE EDOC'06, IEEE ICTAI'04, IEEE/WIC/ACM WI'04/IAT'04, SEKE 2002, and PADD-97.
