十年前，Web 2.0 的熱潮方興未艾，於是也湊熱鬧的開了一個部落格，那時剛接觸 Data Mining 這門學問，一邊整理文獻，一邊做筆記，一時腦熱，拍拍腦袋就把筆記稍作修整，放上部落格。
現在應該沒人在乎 1989 的 IJCAI 有什麼歷史意義了，那時的傻勁，真可愛。
Data Mining is the evolution of a filed with long history, the term “data mining” emerged in late ’80s and the researches of data mining flourished since 1990s. Many believed that the birth of data mining (or knowledge discovery) should trace back to the 1989 IJCAI workshop on Knowledge Discovery in Databases took pace in Detroit, Michigan, USA. The report was published in AI magazine and the bibex can be found at ACM digital library. The context of the document can be found at KDnuggets. (The Proceedings of the conference may be of interest).
