Visual Data Mining (VDM)

Cour­se objec­ti­ve:
The aim of this methods cour­se is to intro­du­ce the con­cepts and methods of visu­al data mining and to expe­ri­ence them live on your own data.

Tar­get group:
This cour­se is aimed at pro­ject mana­gers and qua­li­fied spe­cia­lists in ser­vice or indus­tri­al com­pa­nies who want to under­stand and eva­lua­te their data using visu­al data mining.

You also work with your own data!

Cour­se con­tent:
For effec­ti­ve data mining, the art and sci­ence of lear­ning from data, it is important to invol­ve peo­p­le direct­ly. The basic idea of visu­al data mining is the appro­pria­te pre­sen­ta­ti­on of data in intui­ti­ve gra­phics that allow you to gain an insight into the struc­tu­re of the data, draw con­clu­si­ons from the data and inter­act direct­ly with the data. Visu­al data mining methods can be used to iden­ti­fy unex­pec­ted pat­terns, struc­tures, models or trends in data. This visu­al data explo­ra­ti­on can the­r­e­fo­re be seen as a pro­cess for gene­ra­ting “hypo­the­ses” - in other words, as a data mining pro­cess.

This cour­se pro­vi­des an over­view of visu­al data mining, visu­al per­cep­ti­ons and illu­si­ons as well as the various methods used: from clas­si­cal, sta­tis­ti­cal gra­phics to com­pu­ter-based and inter­ac­ti­ve visua­liza­ti­on tech­ni­ques.

At the same time, par­ti­ci­pan­ts are given the oppor­tu­ni­ty to app­ly the methods pre­sen­ted in prac­ti­ce to sam­ple data and, for at least half a day, to their own data. The par­ti­ci­pan­ts thus put the know­ledge they have acqui­red into prac­ti­ce with modern soft­ware using con­cre­te examp­les.

We offer this cour­se in coope­ra­ti­on with our part­ner Sta­too Con­sul­ting. The trai­ner is Dr. Die­go Kuo­nen, PhD in sta­tis­tics, CStat PStat CSci, foun­der and CEO of Sta­too Con­sul­ting, and Pre­si­dent of the Swiss Sta­tis­ti­cal Socie­ty.

Each par­ti­ci­pant recei­ves a ver­si­on of the prin­ted cour­se mate­ri­als in Eng­lish for per­so­nal use. On request, an eva­lua­ti­on licen­se for Sta­tis­ti­ca Data Miner will be made available free of char­ge for 30 days so that par­ti­ci­pan­ts can app­ly what they have lear­ned in their own com­pa­ny.

Know­ledge of the Sta­tis­ti­ca soft­ware is advan­ta­ge­ous, but not neces­sa­ry.

All par­ti­ci­pan­ts will recei­ve the Sta­tis­ti­ca Data Miner eva­lua­ti­on licen­se for instal­la­ti­on on a lap­top with suf­fi­ci­ent advan­ce noti­ce.


  • Online: The­se trai­ning ses­si­ons offer maxi­mum fle­xi­bi­li­ty wit­hout the need to tra­vel. All par­ti­ci­pan­ts work on their own PCs. We recom­mend using two moni­tors for this pur­po­se.

Duration: 2 days | Price on request
