Do Polar Bears live in cold areas? Do some mammals frequently co-inhabit some areas, and can those areas' bioclimatic conditions summarized succintly? Do political candidates with specific socioeconomical background have opinions that set them apart from their peers? How much the discussion in different discussion threads is influenced by shared topics and how much the threads have their individual topics (and what those topics are)?
Answering these and many other questions requires multi-view data mining techniques, meaning techniques that can take multiple data sets describing the same set of entities and find interesting patterns from them. In this block seminar, we are going to study two types of such algorithms, redescription mining and shared subspace factorizations.
The seminar has a limited number of slots. The registration is first-come-first-served. The registration happens by sending email to the lecturer with at least 3 preferred papers. You will be informed whether you got a slot to the seminar before the kick-off meeting. The deadline for registration is announced later.
If you wish to obtain email as soon as the list of papers is published, you can mail the lecturer.

|December||1||16:00||Written report first draft DL|
|December||15||16:00||Slides first draft DL|
|January||8||16:00||Written report hand-in DL|
|January||15–16||Seminar days||Room 630, building E1.5|
Below is the list of the papers. Papers 1–6 are about redescription mining and related topics, while papers 7–12 are about shared subspace matrix and tensor factorizations.
All papers are taken. Some papers might be re-released if the student drops off before the kick-off meeting. If you're interested on the seminar but didn't secure a spot, you can come to the kick-off meeting to see if there are any such papers.
Students should know the basic ideas of data mining and machine learning, e.g., by successfully taking Information Retrieval and Data Mining or Machine Learning core lectures.
This is a block seminar. We will have one meeting at the begin of the semester and one or two days of presentations at the end of it. In addition to their presentation, every participant must also hand in a short essay of their topic. The essays and the preliminary versions of the presentations need to be handed in to the lecturer during the semester (exact date TBA) and the essays will be distributed to the other attendants. Meeting all the deadlines and attending all presentations (including the kick-off meeting) is mandatory. The grading shall be based on the essays, the presentation, your knowledge of the subject (as evidenced in the discussion after your presentation), and your activity in the discussions.
