The Fuzzy Search for Association Rules with Interestingness Measure

Phaichayon Kongchai, Nittaya Kerdprasop, and Kittisak Kerdprasop

Abstract—Association rule are important to retailers as a source of knowledge to manage shelf, to plan an effective promotion, and so on. However, when we are mining with association rule discovery technique, we normally obtain a large number of rules. To select only good rule is difficult. Therefore, in this paper we propose the fuzzy search technique to discover interesting association rule. The comparative result of fuzzy versus non-fuzzy searches are presented in the experiment section. We found that fuzzy search is more flexible than the non-fuzzy one in finding highly constrained rules.

Index Terms—Fuzzy set, fuzzy search, membership function, association rule mining.
