What is Association Rule Mining and
Weighted Association rule mining?
Association rule mining is popular method, to mine
association rules that satisfy the predefined minimum
support and confidence from a given database.
In weighted association rule mining, weight are
assigned to each item to reflect interest of each item
within the transaction.
To improve the confidence of the rule using
pre assigned weights for each item/attribute.
To improve the quality of the rule by reducing the
quantity of the rules without compromising the
To improve the computational efficiency of rule
Association Rule Induction
Apriori algorithm is the best known algorithm to mine
association rules but ends up with many disadvantages
The algorithm does not return result in a reasonable time.
It only tells the presence and absence of an item in
It is not efficient in case of large dataset(dense dataset).
ARM fails to associate subjective measures.
So, the traditional model of association rule mining is
adapted to handle weighted association rule mining.
This algorithm is both scalable and efficient in
discovering significant relationships but still ends up in
long frequent pattern for dense data.
This problem does not require changes in the existing rule
mining ,therefore it is necessary to apply during post-
mining of association rules.
• It is difficult for the users to find interesting
association rule as there are more number of
association rules discovered before.
• Therefore, it is important to remove insignificant rules
and prune redundancy as well as
summarize, visualize, and post-mine the discovered
SCOPE OF THE PROJECT
Generating Weighted Association Rules
Creating ontology for the Datasets(Census Income
Generating Rule Schemas
Applying Operators over rule schemas
Applying Filters over rules schemas
Comparing efficiency after applying operators and
NEED FOR CURRENT STUDY
Weighted concept is used in order to gain a more
realistic mining result.
Weighted Association Rules can filter out the minor
rules, extracts the implicit and useful rules for users.
