|Data Mining User Capabilities
There are different types of users, and all have
varying levels of expertise. The ways these users will want to interact
with a mining system will be drastically different as a result.
Following are some classes of users, and what they might expect
from a system:
- Casual Users:
Casual users will have little knowledge of the problem domain
and no knowledge about mining operations. They will want the system
to produce some information in an easily understandable format
without having to specify how the system does the job.
- Domain Experts:
Domain experts will understand the problem domain and will be
capable of aiding in development of mining plans. Some sophisticated
domain experts may assemble mining plans on their own, or even
develop mining operators.
- Mining Experts:
Mining experts will be capable of constructing mining plans using
existing operators and of implementing new mining operators. They
may work with domain experts to solve mining problems.
