Discovering knowledge from complex data

Agnieszka Nowak-Brzezińska, Tomasz Xięski


This work presents a universal knowledge discovery method from complex data, which takes into account the usage of data description techniques, cluster analysis algorithms and effective means of visualization of the discovered knowledge. A characteristic feature of this method is the usage of a two-stage clustering process.
