Standard methods for data mining and statistical analysis typically assume data to be in a relatively simple "attribute-value" format. In practice, data are often stored in relational databases with a relatively complex structure: relevant information for an individual may be spread over multiple tables in the database, may consist of
complex objects such as time series, etc. It is an open question how such diverse kinds of data can be integrated in an optimal way in the data mining process. In this
talk I will discuss some of the challenges and how they can be addressed. The concepts will be illustrated through an application of data mining in intensive care.
