This paper presents the top 10 data mining algorithms identified by the IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM) inDecember 2006: C4.5, k-Means, SVM, Apriori, EM, PageRank, AdaBoost, kNN, Naive Bayes, and CART. These top 10 algorithms are among themost influential datamining algorithms in the research community.With each algorithm, we provide a description of the algorithm, discuss the impact of the algorithm, and reviewcurrent and further research on the algorithm. These 10 algorithms cover classification, clustering, statistical learning, association analysis, and linkmining, which are all among the most important topics in data mining research and development.
