Abstract

In this paper, we present an evaluation of learning algorithms of a rule evaluation support method with rule evaluation models based on objective indices for data mining post-processing. Post-processing of mined results is one of the key processes in a data mining process. However, it is difficult for human experts to evaluate several thousands of rules from a large dataset with noises for finding out reraly included valuable rules. To reduce the costs in such rule evaluation task, we have developed the rule evaluation support method with rule evaluation models which learn from a dataset. This dataset comprises objective indices for mined classification rules and evaluations by a human expert for each rule. To evaluate performances of learning algorithms for constructing the rule evaluation models, we have done a case study on the meningitis data mining as an actual problem. Furthermore, we have also evaluated our method with twelve rule sets obtained from twelve UCI datasets. With regard to these results, we show the availability of our rule evaluation support method for human experts.
