Data Mining: Separating Fact From Fiction – Presentation to NetIKX

A couple of weeks ago I gave a presentation to NetIKX, an information professionals’ knowledge exchange network.

Search consultant Karen Blakeman opened with a presentation showing how the search engines don’t always return what you’d expect, and I tweaked my presentation somewhat as Karen spoke to try to better complement it.

My slides are available on slideshare in a partially annotated form. I didn’t deliver the more technical data mining algorithm slides towards the end of the deck, and I haven’t yet annotated those slides either.
