Article
Today, the number of existing devices generates immense amounts of data on a continuous basis that must be processed by new distributed data stream mining approaches. In this paper we present a new approach for extracting descriptive emerging patterns in massive data streams from different sources through Apache Kafka and Apache Spark Streaming who...
Chapter
Streaming is being increasingly demanded because it helps in analyzing data in real-time and in decision making. Over time, the number of existing devices increases continuously, generating a huge amount of data. Processing this data with traditional algorithms is impractical, so it is necessary to apply distributed algorithms in a Big Data context...
Chapter
A preliminary many objective algorithm for extracting fuzzy emerging patterns is presented in this contribution. The proposed algorithm employs fuzzy logic together with an evolutionary algorithm. The aim is to expand the complex search space that we have in emerging pattern mining.
Article
In this paper, a cooperative-competitive multi-objective evolutionary fuzzy system called E2PAMEA is presented for the extraction of emerging patterns in big data environments. E2PAMEA follows an adaptive schema to automatically employ different genetic operators according to the learning needs, which avoid the tuning of some parameters. It also em...
Article
Real-time data analysis is becoming increasingly important in Big Data environments for addressing data stream issues. To this end, several technological frameworks have been developed, both open-source and proprietary, for the analysis of streaming data. This paper analyzes some open-source technological frameworks available for data streams, deta...
Article
Nowadays, most data is generated by devices that produce data continuously. These kinds of data can be categorised as data streams and valuable insights can be extracted from them. In particular, the insights extracted by emerging patterns are interesting in a data stream context as easy, fast, reliable decisions can be made. However, their extract...

Nowadays, the growth of available data, known as big data, and machine learning techniques are changing our lives. The extraction of insights related to the underlying phenomena in data is key in order to improve decision-making processes. These underlying phenomena are described in emerging pattern mining by means of the description of the discrim...

Background Emerging pattern mining is a data mining task that extracts rules describing discriminative relationships amongst variables. These rules should be understandable for the experts. Comprehensibility of a rule is traditionally determined by several objectives, which can be calculated by different measures. In this way, multi-objective evolu...
Article
Emerging pattern mining is a data mining task that belongs to the supervised descriptive rule discovery framework. Its objective is to find rules that describe emerging behaviour or differentiating characteristics with respect to a property of interest.

Article
The presence of noise in datasets to which data mining techniques are applied can greatly reduce the quality and interest of the knowledge extracted. Subgroup discovery is a supervised descriptive rule discovery technique which is not exempt from this problem. The aim of this paper is to improve the descriptions of subgroups previously obtained by...
Article

Subgroup discovery (SD) is a descriptive data mining technique using supervised learning. In this article, we review the use of evolutionary algorithms (EAs) for SD. In particular, we will focus on the suitability and potential of the search performed by EAs in the development of SD algorithms. Future directions in the use of EAs for SD are also pr...
Article
Subgroup discovery is a broadly applicable data mining technique whose main objective is the search for descriptions of subgroups of data that are statistically unusual with respect to a property of interest. The obtaining of general rules describing as many instances as possible is preferred in subgroup discovery, but this can lead to less accurat...

Article
Subgroup discovery is a descriptive data mining technique which aims at obtaining interesting rules through supervised learning. In general, there are no works analysing the consequences of the presence of missing values in data in this task, although improper handling of this type of data in the analysis may introduce bias and can result in mislea...
Conference Paper
In real-life data, a loss of information is frequent in data mining due to the presence of missing values in the attributes. Missing values can occur due to problems in the manual data entry procedures, equipment errors or incorrect measurements. The presence of missing values in attributes conditions the results obtained by any knowledge extractio...

A main purpose of a multi-objective evolutionary algorithm is to find a good relationship between convergence and diversity of the population. Convergence guides the algorithm to search the optimal solution and diversity tries to avoid a premature stagnation of the search. In multi-objective evolu-tionary algorithms, diversity has been promoted usi...
