Two common English errors in pattern mining papers

This is a short blog post to talk about two common errors in pattern mining research papers.

1) The first error is:

mining frequent itemsets from a database
“mining patterns from a stream”
“mining patterns over a database”
“mining patterns over a data stream”

In English, we don’t mine something from something else or over something else. We mine something in something else. So it should be “mining frequent itemsets in a database” and “mining patterns in a stream

2) The second error is:

“association rules mining”, “frequent itemsets mining”

The correct way to write is:

“association rule mining”, “frequent itemset mining”


These two errors are very common. That is why I think it is important to mention them.
