18 Jul Data Mining
Data mining is the process of knowledge discovery in datasets (Roiger, 2017). It summarizes all analysis procedures required in order to identify interesting trends and patterns within data and includes data preparation and data modeling (Gola, 2018).
In recent years, the Internet of Things (IoT) has emerged as a new opportunity. Thus, all devices such as smartphones, transportation facilities, public services, and home appliances are used as data creator devices. All the electronic devices around us help our daily life. Devices such as wrist watches, emergency alarms, and garage doors and home appliances such as refrigerators, microwaves, air conditioning, and water heaters are connected to an IoT network and controlled remotely. Methods such as big data and data mining can be used to improve the efficiency of IoT and storage challenges of a large data volume and the transmission, analysis, and processing of the data volume on the IoT (Shadroo et al, 2018).
In the data mining field, if we do not analyze or extract any knowledge of these data, we can conclude that the generated data is worthless. In addition, the devices themselves can manage the data by using intelligent tools. Data mining techniques are used to analyze the data collected and enhance IoT intelligence (Kholod et al, 2016; Siddiqa et al, 2016; Chen et al, 2015).
Mining data from multiple data sources to extract useful information is considered to be a very challenging task in the field of data mining, especially in the current big data era. The methods of mining multiple data sources can be divided mainly into four groups: (i) pattern analysis, (ii) multiple data source classification, (iii) multiple data source clustering, and (iv) multiple data source fusion (Wang et al, 2018).
