With both commercial and scientific data sets growing at an extremely rapid rate, methods for retrieving knowledge from this data in an efficient and reliable manner are constantly needed. To do this, many knowledge discovery techniques are employed to analyze these large data sets. Generally, knowledge discovery is the process by which data is cleaned and organized, then transformed for use for pattern detection and evaluation tools and then visualized in the most meaningful manner for the user [13].
