[Caveat: I think I asked my question before to someone else's thread.]

What area(s) of mathematics contribute the most to the collective intelligence theory/algorithms?

Thanks,
Scott

Scott,

It is helpful to understand basic vector concepts -- they are also covered in Section 2.2.5.

thanks

I didn't expect that at all. I've come to understand some of the fundamental mathematical theory behind database querying which is based on set theory and I assumed data mining would expand on that to some extent.

Very interesting.

Thanks for the reply. I look forward to your book.

Scott
