Abstract

This research empirically investigates the performance of conventional rule interestingness measures and discusses their availability to supporting KDD through system-human interaction in medical domain. We compared the evaluation results by a medical expert and that by selected measures for the rules discovered from a dataset on hepatitis. Recall and 2 Measure 1 demon-strated the highest performance, and all measures showed different trends under our experimental conditions. These results indicated that some measures can predict really interesting rules at a certain level and that their combinational use in system-human interaction will be useful.
