This talk will present the following top-10 data mining algorithms identified by the IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM): C4.5, K-Means, SVM, Apriori, EM, PageRank, AdaBoost, kNN, Naive Bayes, and CART. For each algorithm, we provide a description of the algorithm and discuss its impact, as well as current and further research on the algorithm.
