Data mining is used to turn data into information and it links several fields including statistics, artificial intelligence, database management, machine learning, pattern recognition and data visualization. It became a field of interest in the early 90s. Since then the interest in data mining has spread worldwide. Also in Poland there are research institutes working in this field, software developers offering specialized software and successful applications of data mining techniques. In this paper we present the development of data mining in Poland.
