Introducing Softness into Inductive Queries on String Databases
In many application domains (e.g., WWW mining, molecular biology), large string datasets are available and yet under-exploited. The inductive database framework assumes that both such datasets and the various patterns holding within them might be queryable. In this setting, queries which return patterns are called inductive queries and solving them is one of the core research topics for data mining. Indeed, constraint-based mining techniques on string datasets have been studied extensively. Efficient algorithms enable to compute complete collections of patterns (e.g., substrings) which satisfy conjunctions of monotonic and/or anti-monotonic constraints in large datasets (e.g., conjunctions of minimal and maximal support constraints). We consider that fault-tolerance and softness are extremely important issues for tackling real-life data analysis. We address some of the open problems when evaluating soft-support constraint which implies the computations of pattern soft-occurrences inste...
