Modeling

Predictive modeling is the process by which a model is created to predict an outcome. If the outcome is categorical it is called classification and if the outcome is numerical it is called regression.  Descriptive modeling or clustering is the assignment of observations into clusters so that observations in the same cluster are similar. Finally, association rules can find interesting associations amongst observations.
