CSCI 495: Explorations in Applied Computing

Spring 2006


Suggested Project Topics

1. Title: Data Mining – Agglomerative Clustering


Tentative Description: Unsupervised clustering builds models from data without predefined classes. Data instances are grouped together based on a similarity scheme defined by the clustering system. Agglomerative Clustering algorithm clusters a given dataset with out the need for specifying an initial estimation of the number of clusters. The following are the requirements:

  • Implement the Agglomerative Clustering algorithm.

  • Design a user interface to input data sets.

  • Design a graphical interface to present the clusters.

  • Experiment with different data sets and parameters.


Core Knowledge: Math skill, Interface design

2. Title: Data Mining – Conceptual Clustering


Tentative Description: Conceptual Clustering incorporates “incremental learning” to form a hierarchy of concepts. The hierarchy is a tree structure with the root node representing the highest concept generalization. The following are the requirements:

  • Implement the Conceptual Clustering algorithm.

  • Design a user interface to input data sets.

  • Design a graphical interface to present the tree hierarchy.

  • Experiment with different data sets and parameters.


Core Knowledge: Math skill, Interface design

3. Title: Text Database Retrieval System


Tentative Description: One of the fundamental uses of computers has been to store and retrieve text documents. When a user wants to find documents related to topic T, a search program would retrieve documents, which contains string “T” from the text database. Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI) is an efficient way for accessing large text databases based on semantic content. The following are the requirements:

  • Create a sample text database.

  • Implement the LSI algorithm to search a text database.

  • Design a graphical interface to accept a user query and to display retrieved document sets.

  • Experiment with different data sets and parameters.
