Knowledge Management (and Data Mining)


Introduce the student in the world of knowledge management, the methodologies, the techniques and the tools to capture, to validate and to use knowledge. Among these techniques, we will put special attention in some ones coming from the area of Data Mining. These are useful to take conclusions from the intelligent analysis of the data and, therefore, as a support to decision making.
