most methods in the middle circle are in statistics and is useful for data mining. I ,a statistician, had taught data mining and think that data mining is less statistical and mathematical concepts and methods and is invented by computer scientists who do not like or do not have much background on math and stat. Or I can say data mining is  the realization of  our way of thinking.
