The extraction of knowledge from data is an extremely important activity and demanded by several organizations existing in the business, government and scientific areas. The tasks of prediction, grouping, identification of patterns, anomalies and imputation are part of the set of research activities in this project.
Much of the progress in data mining tasks is achieved through research in data pre-processing techniques. Data pre-processing is an important step in the process of extracting knowledge from data. It includes cleaning, removing outliers, selecting attributes, defining samples and transforming data. Data preparation can take a considerable amount of computational processing time and the experiment as a whole. This step can mean the difference between obtaining knowledge or not and producing added value.
In data mining, several methods are designed assuming stationarity, i.e., the mean and variance remain constant, regardless of the selected sample. However, a considerable portion of the data collections has non-stationary properties in practice. Because of this, data mining methods are often compromised in this context. It is noted that despite the importance, there is a lot of space for the study of data mining and pre-processing techniques resilient to non-stationarity.
