I spent about an hour yesterday preparing to study data mining
I spent some time on-line exploring the professor of the data mining coures' web space. I read a couple of papers from the journal of statistical software. I installed Ggobi on my WinXP laptop and got it working with some of Di Cook's data from her 1997 paper. So I decided to study data mining. But that decision isn't final. I have got a place in another criminal law issues course concerning policing and a space in a law and risk course. One of either of these law courses would fufill my degree requirements and would mean if I passed one of them I would be done by the end of this coming summer with my honours BA. Also there is a course in statistical computing I might take instead. On Wednesday I will attend the first classes in the criminal issues course and the statistical compuitng course, then next Monday I will attend the first class in the law and risk course and then in the evening attend the first class in the data mining course. Then that Tuesday I will make my final decision on what course of these four to study this term.
