Hyperclique pattern discovery
Existing algorithms for mining association patterns often rely on the support-based pruning strategy to prune a combinatorial search space. However, this strategy is not effective for discovering potentially interesting patterns at low levels of support. Also, it tends to generate too many spurious patterns involving items which are from different support levels and are poorly correlated. In this paper, we present a framework for mining highly-correlated association patterns called hyperclique patterns. In this framework, an objective measure called h-confidence is applied to discover hyperclique patterns. We prove that the objects in a hyperclique pattern have a guaranteed level of global pairwise similarity to one another as measured by the cosine similarity (uncentered Pearson's correlation coefficient). Also, we show that the h-confidence measure satisfies a cross-support property which can help efficiently eliminate spurious patterns involving items with substantially differe...
