Course criteria

Active participation in the exercise: vote for at least 60% of the exercise, that is to agree to show the solution approach on the black board.

Oral (30 minutes) exam.

The final mark is the mark of the exam


Basic knowledge within the content of the Data Mining 1 lecture repectively the book Guide to Intelligent Data Analysis is advantageous.
