Fuzzy temporal association rules can take into account the temporal requirements of the user which tend to be ill-defined or uncertain. However, fuzzy temporal association rules still have some shortcomings: firstly, neglecting the effect of all kinds of potential negative examples that affect its expression capability; secondly, probably showing no practical significance or even misleading even if it possesses high confidence and support. In this paper, the relativity-based interest measure value is introduced based on the fuzzy calendar-based temporal association rules, and a fuzzy calendar-based temporal association rules mining algorithm with interest measure is also proposed. Finally, this algorithm was applied to the prediction of telemetry data from the power system of small satellite. It was proved that this algorithm has a good effect and feasibility.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we handle the problem of mining fuzzy temporal association rules from a publication database, and propose an algorithm to achieve it. In the algorithm, the lifespan of an item is measured by its entire publication periods in a publication database. Also, an itemset table structure is designed to effectively keep and efficiently obtain information of itemsets for mining. Finally, experiments on a simulation dataset were made to show the comparison results of the mined fuzzy frequent itemsets with and without consideration of lifespans of items under different parameter settings.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we propose a data mining algorithm for deriving fuzzy temporal association rules. It first transforms each quantitative value into a fuzzy set using the given membership functions. Meanwhile, item lifespans are collected and recorded in a temporal information table during the transformation process. The algorithm then calculates the scalar cardinality of each linguistic term of each item. The mining process based on fuzzy counts and item lifespans is then performed to find fuzzy temporal association rules. Experiments on a simulation dataset are also made to show the effectiveness and the efficiency of the proposed approach.
