Thoughts on Week 4

One of the problems that I have always had issues with in data mining exercises, or even just finding the right articles to read for an assignment is the proliferation of alternative spelling or terms for the same things, eg pot vs jar in ceramics. It was interesting this week to be introduced to tools that begin to consider intelligent work arounds for this, although I think even know I would be more comfortable looking through the returned data myself it will definitely streamline the process.

One of the up-sides of working with a digital, or digitised, data set is that it is faster to analyse the information hidden in the numbers and subsequently manipulate the results into a visual format for ease of discussion.
