Data Mining in a Scientific Environment: "Abstract
Data Mining is a concept that is taking off in the commercial sector as a means of finding useful information out of gigabytes of data. While products for the commercial environment are starting to become available, tools for a scientific environment are much rarer (or even non-existent). Yet scientists have long had to search through reams of printouts and rooms full of tapes to find the gems that make up scientific discovery.
This paper will explore some of the ad hoc methods generally used for Data Mining in the scientific community, including such things as scientific visualisation, and outline how some of the more recently developed products used in the commercial environment can be adapted to scientific Data Mining."
