dc.description.abstractThis paper introduces a basic understanding for the topic of data mining. It will go into detail about the basics and background information of data mining, how data mining is used in the medical field, specifically how data mining can be used to further the research of various cancers and heart diseases. I was motivated to write about this topic because of the data mining class I took while studying abroad at Hong Kong Baptist University. As a result, the introductions of the subtopics in data mining are based off the notes that I have taken in Dr. Huang’s class. I want to find a career in the medical field that uses computer science knowledge; I feel that data mining, also known as data analytics, fit the criteria that I am looking for.en_US
