Earthquake Prediction Through Sunspots Part II: common Data Mining Mistakes!

April 4, 2012

While I was writing the last post I was wondering how long before my followers will notice the mistakes I introduced into the experiments.

Let’s start the treasure hunt!

1. Don’t always trust your data: often they are not homogeneous.
In the post I put in relation the quakes in the range time between [~1800,1999] with the respective sunspots distribution.

A good data miner must always check his dataset! you should always ask to yourself whether the data have been produced in a congruent way.
