(video) Identifying Stable Periodic Frequent Patterns using SPP-Growth

Today, I present a video about finding stable periodic patterns in data, and discuss a new algorithm named SPP-Growth for this task. VIDEO LINK: http://www.philippe-fournier-viger.com/spmf/videos/SPPGrowth.mp4 The  SPP-Growth algorithm and datasets for evaluating its performance are available in the SPMF software, which is open-source and programmed in Java. Source code and … Continue reading
