Abstract: Data mining plays a significant role on human activities and has become an essential component in various fields of human life. It is the knowledge discovery process which analyzes the large volumes of data from various perspectives and summarizes it into useful information. Data mining is greatly inspired by advancements in Statistics, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Pattern Recognition and Computation capabilities. In this paper, we have discussed the concept of data mining, its tools and techniques, its applications and advantages/disadvantages from beginning of the term to present scenario.
Keywords: Data Mining, Tools, Techniques, Applications.
