SPMF update: Indirect association rule mining algorithm & bit vectors implementations of CHARM, AprioriTID and ECLAT
Date: October 22, 2011 07:01AM


This is to let you know that I have updated the SPMF framework for data mining.

The new version includes an implementation of the algorithm for mining indirect association rules by Tan et al (2000) also described in the book by Tan, Steinbach and Kumar (2006). This algorithm allows to discover pairs of items that are indirectly associated together through another set of items called the "mediator".

For indirect association rules, many interestingness measures can be used. In my implementation, I have decided to use the confidence.

Note that there is some faster algorithm for mining indirect association rules that have been proposed. But I choose the one of Tan & al because it is simple.

Also, I have recently added new faster implementations of CHARM, ECLAT and APRIORI-TID using bit vectors!
