Data Mining PhD student trying to contribute.

Postby gopinutakki » Nov 5th, '12, 17:21

Hello all,

I am a data mining PhD student and I would be very glad to contribute to the project. I have noticed Data Mining being mentioned on the contributions webpage. Can anyone let me know of the IRC channel or any person, I need to get in touch so that I can start working?

Thank you

Is it even possible to have a data mining project and respect privacy?

While data mining has come to mean a lot of things, it doesn't necessarily mean spying on users. It just means to take data and make it meaningful data. However, more often than not, someone doing data mining projects are invading privacy by doing things like observing what users do and reporting that information. That would not be OK in this community. Even if malicious code like that were introduced, it would be removed quickly after it was released. However, data mining could be useful and doesn't necessarily mean invading the privacy of users.
