Keywords: domain ontology | data mining | knowledge discovery in databases (KDD)

Ontologies have been used in various research areas from computer science, including data mining. This article describes the development of a domain ontology for data mining. Meta-DM ontology provides a common terminology that can be shared and processed by data mining tools. The ontology also indicates the KDD phases where human knowledge is necessary - this is its greatest differential. With ontologies as the Meta-DM, it is possible to add semantics in the data mining process in order to improve the interaction and cooperation between experts and mining systems.
