    Default Question from a beginner to data mining.

    Hoping a few of you knowledgeable people out there could answer a question or two from a total novice.

    I have a fairly small data set with a few hundred instances. The instances can be numbers 1-7. and that is all. In other words I have a bunch of numbers, but they only occur as 1 2 3 4 5 6 or 7. The key is order. I'm trying to find patterns in their occurrence and perhaps patterns within patterns.

    My question is, I don't know what type of problem this is? and whether I'm using the right software to attempt it. I've downloaded Weka and am learning it. But can it do this type of stuff? What type of classifiers and filters should I be using? Or should I be using different software entirely like PRtools? Thank You in advance.

    For me this seems to be a TimeSeries problem. Weka has an extension for this. Use Wekas Download Manager to download TimeSeries Forecasting.

    Take a closer look here!
