GOOD MORNING every body

i have please a small question

can we consider genetic algorithm as a datamining technique or algorthim ,if yes can you show me a link or paper wich confirm that ?i find in a book 1 year ago that it's a sot computing tehnique

thanks for reading my message

Welcome to the forum!

Yes, genetic algorithms can be used to perform or to help perform data mining tasks. I have searched a few papers for you. and here are some examples:

A genetic algorithm for mining association rules in a database: Genetic algorithm-based strategy for identifying association rules without specifying actual minimum support
X Yan, C Zhang, S Zhang - Expert Systems with Applications, 2009 - Elsevier

In clustering: Incremental clustering in data mining using genetic algorithm,

For classification: An incremental genetic algorithm for classification and sensitivity analysis of its parameters
G Bakırlı, D Birant, A Kut - Expert Systems with Applications, 2011 - Elsevier

for mining rules : A multi-objective genetic algorithm approach to rule mining for affective product design
KY Fung, CK Kwong, KWM Siu, KM Yu - Expert Systems with Applications, 2012 - Elsevier

for mining frequent itemsets Mining Frequent Itemsets Using Genetic Algorithm
S Ghosh, S Biswas, D Sarkar, PP Sarkar - arXiv preprint arXiv:1011.0328, 2010 - arxiv.or

another one for clustering : [PDF] Genetic k-means clustering algorithm for mixed numeric and categorical data sets
DK Roy, LK Sharma - International Journal of Artificial Intelligence & …, 2010 -

Fraud detection: A comprehensive survey of data mining-based fraud detection research,

Hope this helps!

thanks a lot for this help,they consider in many times genetic algorithm as an heuristic ,i though that is just like that and it isn't a data mining algorithm

thanks once again

Best Regards,
