Well, if data mining is going to remain a constant in our lives. We might as well understand as much about the trends as we can. One good place to start might be at the M2005 conference.

CARY, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Oct. 3, 2005–SAS, the leader in business intelligence, is preparing to host M2005, the world’s largest data mining conference, this month in Las Vegas.
