It is related to data warehousing in that the collection of and cleaning of data, as in a data warehousing effort, supports data mining. It is related to machine learning in that most of the most popular/useful methods of data mining are machine learning methods. Machine learning is the study of computer programs that develop capabilities that they are not explicitly programmed for.
