Course Enrolment Limitations
The course is offered to students of any study field.
Course objectives
The aim of the course is to introduce students to methods of automated knowledge acquisition from databases. The presentation will focus on individual algorithms from the field of machine learning. Students will get to know one of the used KDD (Knowledge Discovery in Databases) systems. In the practical part, students will work with the selected KDD system (usually Weka).
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course students should be able to:
- understand the role of KDD for data analysis;
- understand different data mining tasks;
- understand the basic principles of various data mining algorithms;
- understand the basic methods of evaluation of created models;
- understand data preprocessing problems;
- formulate KDD tasks for real-world data

Teaching methods
- Exercises, lectures, reading in the face-to-face form of study;
- Teaching in the combined study will take place in the form of concentration, where, in addition to a condensed presentation of the topic, previous self-study is also expected.
- In both forms - case studies of data analysis using methods of knowledge acquisition.
Assessment methods
The subject is completed with a CREDIT (3 credits).
CREDIT - Full-time study: Granting of credit is tied to:
- fulfillment of the obligation of active attendance min. 75% (i.e. active participation in the course of teaching).
- Elaboration and presentation of a team case study (data analysis in the selected KDD system), or elaboration of a theoretical KDD topic according to the teacher's instructions (details will be published in MS Teams).
CREDIT - Combined study: Granting of credit is tied to:
- fulfillment of the obligation of active attendance in  min. in the range of 50% at training sessions (active participation in the course of teaching).
- The same as for full-time students - Elaboration of a team case study or elaboration of a theoretical topic of KDD.
ATTENTION: For all forms it is necessary:
- handing in credit work according to the assignment in the drop-in office.

If a lesson, tutorial or consultation will take place via Microsoft Teams, it is expected to turn on the camera and microphone when prompted by the teacher.
Language of instruction
