Statistical Data Mining Tutorials

Good Data Mining tutorials are not always easy to come by. Fortunately, Andrew Moore who is a professor of at Carnegie Mellon University has created quite a few excellent tutorials, covering the basics of Statistical Data Mining and Machine Learning. The tutorials are generally suited for undergrads, but I think just about anyone with a solid math background should be able to keep up. For the mathematically uninitiated (myself included) , Andrew also gives a good introduction to probability theory, so you're pretty much covered either way.

The list of topics includes:
  • Decision Tree
  • Bayesian Networks
  • Naive Bayesian Classifiers
  • K-means and Hierarchical Clustering
  • Neural Networks
  • Support Vector Machines
And much much more!

Take a look here, you won't be sorry.
