Agglomerating local patterns hierarchically with ALPHA
To increase the relevancy of local patterns discovered from noisy relations, it makes sense to formalize error-tolerance. Our starting point is to address the limitations of state-ofthe-art methods for this purpose. Some extractors perform an exhaustive search w.r.t. a declarative specification of error-tolerance. Nevertheless, their computational complexity prevents the discovery of large relevant patterns. Alpha is a 3-step method that (1) computes complete collections of closed patterns, possibly error-tolerant ones, from arbitrary n-ary relations, (2) enlarges them by hierarchical agglomeration, and (3) selects the relevant agglomerated patterns.
