Data mining is the process of exploring and analyzing data from different perspective, using automatic or semiautomatic techniques to extract knowledge or useful information and discover correlations or meaningful patterns and rules from large databases. One of the most vital characteristic missed by the traditional data mining systems is their capability to record and process time-varying aspects of the real world databases. . Temporal data mining, which mines or discovers knowledge and patterns from temporal databases, is an extension of data mining with capability to include time attribute analysis. The pattern discovery task of temporal data mining discovers all patterns of interest from a large dataset. This paper presents an overview of temporal data mining and focus on pattern discovery using temporal association rules.
