Abstract

Emerging patterns (EPs) are knowledge patterns capturing contrasts between data classes. In this paper, we propose an information-based approach for classification by aggregating emerging patterns. The constraint-based EP mining algorithm enables the system to learn from large-volume and high-dimensional data; the new approach for selecting representative EPs and efficient algorithm for finding the EPs renders the system high predictive accuracy and short classification time. Experiments on many benchmark datasets show that the resulting classifiers have good overall predictive accuracy, and are often also superior to other state-of-the-art classification systems such as C4.5, CBA and LB.
