Visual Mining with MineSet:
Specially designed to handle large quantities of data, MineSet features interactive tools for searching, classifying, filtering and drilling down models. Its real power comes from its ability to support real-time “what if” analysis-users can adjust values or ranges and immediately see the effects. Its visualisation capabilities are so unique that it’s often referred to as visual mining software. Since its introduction to market, MineSet has been used by many organisations for a wide range of applications, such as fraud and money laundering detection, network intrusion detection, drug discovery research, customer profiling and oil and gas exploration. MineSet runs on Linux, IRIX and Windows operating systems and is available for shipment from Purple Insight in October.
