Data Mining: Building Social Network


Data mining is one of the fields of computer science wherein we discover patterns through large databases using some computational process or some other methodology. Extracting such data from social media makes such patterns available which can be helpful for different businesses, markets and for other purposes. In this paper, we have extracted data from Wikipedia and blogs regarding ten different attributes of writers, politicians and athletes and find the similarity between them using some of the pre-existing methodologies and finally build a social network amongst them. We have also conducted some mathematical experiments on them so as to examine the efficiency of our analysis.
