Synthesizing High-Utility Patterns from Different Data Sources
AbstractIn large organizations, it is often required to collect data from the different geographic branches spread over different locations. Extensive amounts of data may be gathered at the centralized location in order to generate interesting patterns via mono-mining the amassed database. However, it is feasible to mine the useful patterns at the data source itself and forward only these patterns to the centralized company, rather than the entire original database. These patterns also exist in huge numbers, and different sources calculate different utility values for each pattern. This paper proposes a weighted model for aggregating the high-utility patterns from different data sources. The procedure of pattern selection was also proposed to efficiently extract high-utility patterns in our weighted model by discarding low-utility patterns. Meanwhile, the synthesizing model yielded high-utility patterns, unlike association rule mining, in which frequent itemsets are generated by considering each item with equal utility, which is not true in real life applications such as sales transactions. Extensive experiments performed on the datasets with varied characteristics show that the proposed algorithm will be effective for mining very sparse and sparse databases with a huge number of transactions. Our proposed model also outperforms various state-of-the-art distributed models of mining in terms of running time. View Full-Text
