An optimizer to support data mining activities                


Tania Cerquitelli


  •  Association rule extraction
    • Frequent itemset extraction -> computationally intensive
    • Association rule generation from frequent itemsets
  • Research activity usually focuses on defining efficient algorithms for itemset extraction
  • Different algorithms are suitable for different data distribution
  • Some algorithms have been integrated into a DBMS Open Source kernel


  • Data mining optimizer to automatically select appropriate algorithms and data access methods for frequent itemset mining
  • Design and develop a module (i.e., an optimizer), in case integrated into a DBMS Open Source kernel (e.g., PostgreSQL), which is able to select for each mining process the best algorithm for the current data distribution
