Actionable knowledgediscovery is one of Grand Challenges in KDD. To this end, many methodologies have been developed. However, they either view data mining as an autonomous data-driven trial-and-error process, or only analyze the issues in an isolated and case-by-case manner. As a result, the knowledge discovered is often not actionable to constrained business. This paper proposes a practical perspective, referred to as domain-driven in-depth pattern discovery (DDID-PD). It presents a domain-driven view of discovering knowledge satisfying real business needs. Its main ideas include constraint mining, in-depth mining, human-cooperated mining, and loop-closed mining. We demonstrate its deployment in mining actionable trading strategies in Australian Stock Exchange data.
