Microsoft SQL Server 2008 includes several important enhancements for data mining. One area will be of particular interest to the user who has progressed beyond simple models—there are new features for building many and varied models over common mining structures, and also for validating the accuracy of these models. In this webcast, you learn how to use these new techniques, not only through the user interface (UI), but also programmatically from within your own applications.
