Because in network systems are identified with the help of IP address and communication is done through peer to peer with this if other have IP address in same network there are lot of chances to hack or misuse your data. Because these are used in public transport (navigation) also helps in identifying the natural threats . A) This problem also comes into data mining domain. A) Yes because these are private data for the users. Similar to the above. A) Yes. images of earth-orbiting satellites are not private. A) No.) For each of the following data sets. Detecting an abnormality involves continues observation of the heart beat and reporting if any unusual happens. (i)Extracting the frequencies of a sound wave. (g) Monitoring the heart rate of a patient for abnormalities. this is not a data mining problem. (a) Census data collected from 1900–1950. all the seismic waves are monitored at a time. (b) IP addresses and visit times of Web users who visit your Website. It is a data mining problem.Data Mining Course Number: CS616BH1 does not have any idea ) which directly proportional to rise the stock price or sell them. (h) Monitoring seismic waves for earthquake activities. (c) Images from Earth-orbiting satellites. explain whether or not data privacy is an important issue. Census is published data.
