How to auto-adjust the minimum support threshold according to the data size

Today, I will do a quick post on how to automatically adjust the minimum support threshold of frequent pattern mining algorithms such as Apriori, FPGrowth and PrefixSpan according to the size of the data. The problem is simple.  Let’s consider … Continue reading

How to characterize and compare data mining algorithms?

Hi, today, I will discuss how to compare data mining algorithms.  This is an important question for data mining researchers who want to evaluate which algorithm is “better” in general or for a given situation.  This question is also important … Continue reading

Why researchers should make their research papers available on internet?

In this blog post, I will discuss the importance of making research papers available on the internet. As you probably knows, many researchers nowadays prefer to search for papers/articles on the internet instead of searching at their university’s library. Searching … Continue reading
