Over the past two decades many methods for discovering patterns from data have been developed. Although these methods make it easy to mine large numbers of patterns, finding interesting patterns is surprisingly hard. Further, although many people have data that they would like to analyse, many do not have the data mining expertise required to do so. In this talk I will present a framework, paraphrased by the slogan "Mine, Interact, Learn, Repeat", that aims to enable domain experts to find patterns that matter to them by learning their interests through user interaction. I will illustrate the approach with a case study in sports analytics, in which a journalist was asked to analyse a dataset concerning basketball games.
