A Rickety Stairway to SQL Server Data Mining, Algorithm 5: The Neural Network Algorithm

by Steve Bolton

                Anyone who has been following this series of self-tutorials has probably grown accustomed to me adding some kind of disclaimer about my shortcomings as a data miner. These blog posts are designed to simultaneously give the most under-utilized part of SQL Server some badly needed free press,… Read more

A Rickety Stairway to SQL Server Data Mining, Algorithm 4: Logistic Regression

  by Steve Bolton

              In the last installment of this series of self-tutorials on SQL Server Data Mining (SSDM), A Rickety Stairway to SQL Server Data Mining, Algorithm 3: Decision Trees, I glossed over an algorithm that built upon the data mining methods touched on in my first two posts,… Read more

A Rickety Stairway to SQL Server Data Mining, Algorithm 3: Decision Trees

by Steve Bolton 

                This series of self-tutorials is an elementary-level introduction to SQL Server Data Mining (SSDM), not the product of someone who’s done postgraduate work in statistics. Instead of being the last word on the subject, it is a little more like a child learning to speak its first… Read more

A Rickety Stairway to SQL Server Data Mining, Algorithm 2: Linear Regression

            An algorithm that starts with the word “regression” seems an unlikely candidate to move forward with this series of self-tutorials in SQL Server Data Mining (SSDM), but don’t let the name fool you: Linear Regression is a powerful data mining tool that represents a logical second step in any workflow,… Read more

A Rickety Stairway to SQL Server Data Mining, Algorithm 1: Not-So-Naïve Bayes

            Thankfully, the simplest of SQL Server’s algorithms is not quite as naïve about data mining as I am.
            As mentioned in my last post, I had to delay my article on the simplest of Microsoft’s data mining algorithms due to a number of factors, the worst of which turned out… Read more

A Rickety Stairway to SQL Server Data Mining, Part 0.2: How to Dig Out of a Data Mining Cave-In

         This third part in my series of self-tutorials in SQL Server Data Mining (SSDM) was delayed for several weeks due to some unforeseen mishaps, like an antibiotic resistant infection that almost put me in the hospital for the holidays, but most of the delay was due to performance problems stemming… Read more
