(video) Minimal High Utility Itemset Mining with MinFHM

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.

More information about the MinFHM algorithm are provided in this research paper:

Fournier-Viger, P., Lin, C.W., Wu, C.-W., Tseng, V. S., Faghihi, U. (2016). Mining Minimal High-Utility Itemsets. Proc. 27th International Conference on Database and Expert Systems Applications (DEXA 2016). Springer, LNCS, 13 pages, to appear

The source code and datasets of the MinFHM algorithm can be downloaded here:

The source code of MinFHM and datasets are available in the SPMF software.

I will post videos like that perhaps once every few weeks.  I actually have a lot of PPTs to explain various algorithms on my computer but I just need to find time to record the videos.  In a future blog post, I will also explain which software and equipment can be used to record such videos. This is the first video, so obviously it is not perfect. I will make some improvements in the following videos.  If you have any comments, please post it in the comment section!

Philippe Fournier-Viger is a professor of Computer Science and also the founder of the open-source data mining software SPMF, offering more than 150 data mining algorithms.

  1. Thanks for sharing the video. It is useful for other people who are interested in the paper to gain more insights.
    Personally, I also prefer watching the video or the conference presentation before dying the details in the original paper 🙂

    • Great. Glad to know you like videos and thanks for sharing your view. I will continue doing this then 😉 About doing these videos, at first, I thought that it may be complicated to record and edit the videos. But actually it is quite simple. I bought a good microphone recently to make sure that the sound is good for my videos, and downloaded some software called ActivePresenter for recording the videos, and finally, it is quite simple to do. I think it can be a good step for promoting papers perhaps. For now, I am experimenting with this 😉
