Artificial Intelligence interest is constantly growing. The general public is intrigued and becoming more interested in this science. BCS Women and the BCS SGAI (Specialist Group on Artificial Intelligence), two bodies of the British Computer Society, have combined to provide free workshop sessions related to specific areas.

It is a great honour for us to present our next workshop: 'An Introduction to Data Mining and Predictive Analytics', run by Dr Frederic Stahl from Reading University.

The timetable will be as shown below:

Abstract
Data Mining is an important step in the process for discovering knowledge from large amounts of data. Data Mining techniques intersect methods from artificial intelligence, statistics and machine learning. This tutorial provides an introduction to the Knowledge Discovery from Data (KDD) process and gives an overview of various kinds of data mining techniques. It particularly focusses on techniques for predictive analytics and demonstrates how to build a predictive KDD workflow using a real example.
