Data Minning & the Lotto..What i think...

Published:

Last Edited: June 1, 2008, 10:52 pm

I am not an expert in math or algorithms, in fact i don't know anything about them...And over the years i've seen websites talk about neural network & Artificial Intelligence but i've heard them talk about these 2 saying that in those 2 areas are the keys to teaching computers how to win the lottery...

Well i don't think that's true...I think the solution is in "Data Minning"....i was reading about it and the tiny i understood led me to believe that data minning algorithms is going to be the best to teach a computer to sort out the lottery combinations and get the right ones...Now i don't know if data minning mainly involves ONLY retrieving and if that's the case then an organization or someone will have to take data minning and modified/mold it a little to the lottery/random field by adding probability & statistics components maybe combinatorics, among others...

what makes me believe this? I am quoting something about data mining"

"AT&T produces 275 million call records every day. This calls for fast data mining algorithms that can mine huge databases in a reasonable amount of time."

found in this website: http://www.inf.ed.ac.uk/undergraduate/projects/mathiasengvall/ 

Now California Super Lotto Plus has like 60 million combinations...If these data minning algorithms can search almost 5 times the amount of combinations CA Super Lotto Plus lotto have, and get meaningful information, then they can do it for the lotto, knowin/noting that Florida Lotto6/54 has 25 million combinations....

Also if you read the link i showed you above you will read about Apriori algorithm...I don't know what that algorithm is but something i was able to note, is that this algorithm and many other algorithms of data minning can notice "FREQUENT PATTERNS"....And i am thinking if they can detect frequent or frequency patterns, i am sure people can mold those algorithm into detecting "Frequency" in the Lotto numbers or among 2 number combination of the lotto....And if they add to that as a component, TnTea's EOEEOE combos types & combinatorics you will be making progress...

The problem with data minning is that it has been molded towards bussiness and computer application and not towards the lotto....I haven't heard no one on the internet saying they are using data minning for the lotto.....

And that's where the key in analyzing the lotto is, is in Data minning and not in Artificial Intelligence or in Neural Network...Artificial Intelligence is more like computer recognition and Neural Network is more of accomplishing hard tasks/problems that requires math....I could be wrong....Again i don't know anything about neural network or artificial intelligence nor about data mining...

Remember the link i showed you above? read the link and look where it says: "Apriori" now look at the diagram under "Apriori"...Now tell me if the computer/algorithms can do that i am sure it can do it with 2 number combinations of the lotto and with TNTea's OEOEOE combos types and the field of combinatorics.....

They could even add: TNTEA's 2-1-2 method which will be a killer (i totally forgot about it)....That method is incredible.....If they could add that to data minning along with TNTEA'S OEOEOO combos....We will be in the hot seat.....
