A Data Mining attempt over GameClassificationDamien Djaouti | 07-01-2014 | 10:51

"Data mining" is the science dedicated to the creation of knowledge through the analysis of large quantities of data, such as establishing customers habits by tracking how they use their loyalty cards. A few time ago, we were contacted by a computer science student, Axel RB, who desired to perform such analysis over video games, using the data about 38.000 video games collected on our website GameClassification. Thus, we gave him a dataset, and he just published his first findings on his website (in french):


Axel RB - Gale Classification Data Mining


For now, his main finding is the fact that browser-based games tend to be analyzed way more often than the other kind of games on our website, with a striking example coming from the Cooking Mama series. We are now eager to read about his other findings using this method! :)
