This is a video presentation of the paper “Mining Correlated High-Utility Itemsets Using the bond Measure” about correlated high utility pattern mining using FCHM. More information about the FCHM algorithm are provided in this research paper: Fournier-Viger, P., Lin, C. W., Dinh, T., Le, … Continue reading

This is a video presentation of the paper “Mining Minimal High Utility Itemsets” about high utility itemset mining using MinFHM. It is the first video of a series of videos that will explain various data mining algorithms. (link to download … Continue reading

I am happy to announce that the draft of the book about high utility pattern mining has been finalized and submitted to the publisher (Springer). It should thus be published in the very near future. The book contains 12 chapters written … Continue reading

As you may know, I am one of the four co-organizers of the first international Workshop on Utility-Driven Mining (UDM2018), which will be held at KDD 2018 in London, England this August. I am quite excited about this workshop, and in … Continue reading

In this blog post, I will present the upcoming 1st International Workshop on Utility-Driven Mining, which will be held in conjunction with the 24th ACM SIGKDD Conference (KDD 2018), on the 20th August 2018 in London (United Kingdom). This KDD workshop … Continue reading

In this blog post I will give an introduction to the discovery of periodic patterns in data. Mining periodic patterns is an important data mining task as patterns may periodically appear in all kinds of data, and it may be desirable to find them … Continue reading

In this blog post, I will give an introduction about a popular problem in data mining, which is called “high-utility itemset mining” or more generally utility mining. I will give an overview of this problem, explains why it is interesting, and provide source code of … Continue reading
