Example text

The conciseness of the data mining models: unlike the instructions of a computer program, which are often relatively numerous, the number of instructions in a data mining model is nearly always small (if we disregard the instructions for collecting the data to which the model is applied, since these are related to conventional data processing, even though there are special purpose tools), and indeed conciseness (or ‘parsimony’) is one of the sought-after qualities of a model (since it is considered to imply readability and robustness).

On the other hand, if a variable is anomalous for too many individuals, this variable is unsuitable for use. Be careful about numerical variables: we must not confuse a significant value of 0 with a value set to 0 by default because no information is provided. ’ in SAS. Remember that a variable whose reliability cannot be assured must never be used in a model. A model with one variable missing is more useful than a model with a false variable. The same applies if we are uncertain whether a variable will always be available or always correctly updated.
