The Web has emerged as a large, distributed data repository, and information on the Internet and in existing transaction databases can be analyzed for commercial gains in decision making. Therefore, how to efficiently identify quality knowledge from different data sources uncovers a significant challenge. This challenge has attracted wide interest from both academia and the industry.Knowledge Discovery in Multiple Databasesprovides a comprehensive introduction to the latest advancements in multi-database mining, and presents a local-pattern analysis framework for pattern discovery from multiple data sources. Based on this framework, data preparation techniques in multiple databases, an application-independent database classification for data reduction, and efficient algorithms for pattern discovery from multiple databases are described.Knowledge Discovery in Multiple Databasesis suitable for researchers, professionals and students in data mining, distributed data analysis, and machine learning, who are interested in multi-database mining. It is also appropriate for use as a text supplement for broader courses that might involve knowledge discovery in databases and data mining.
