Data discretization and its techniques in data mining

Data discretization and its techniques?

Data discretization converts a large number of data values into smaller once, so that data evaluation and data management becomes very easy.


we have an attribute age with following values.

Age  10,11,13,14,17,19,30, 31, 32, 38, 40, 42,70 , 72, 73, 75
