In this paper, we propose an efficient method for mining all frequent inter-transaction patterns. The method consists of two phases. First, we devise two data structures: a dat-list, which stores the item information used to find frequent inter-transaction patterns; and an ITP-tree, which stores the discovered frequent inter-transaction patterns. In the(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel face detection method based on the MAFIA algorithm. Our proposed method consists of two phases, namely, training and detection. In the training phase, we first apply Sobel's edge detection operator, morphological operator, and thresholding to each training image, and transform it into an edge image. Next, we use the MAFIA(More)
In video database systems, one of the most important methods for discriminating the videos is by using the objects and the perception of spatial and temporal relations that exist between objects in the desired videos. In this paper, we propose a new spatio-temporal knowledge representation called 3D C-string. The knowledge structure of 3D C-string, extended(More)
To improve the effectiveness and efficiency of mining tasks, constraint-based mining enables users to concentrate on mining their interested association rules instead of the complete set of association rules. Previously proposed methods are mainly contributed to handling a single constraint and only consider the constraints which are characterized by a(More)
In this paper, we propose an efficient algorithm, called ICMiner (Inter-transaction Closed patterns Miner), for mining closed inter-transaction itemsets. Our proposed algorithm consists of two phases. First, we scan the database once to find the frequent items. For each frequent item found, the ICMiner converts the original transaction database into a set(More)
The knowledge structure called the 2D C þ-string, proposed by Huang et al., to represent symbolic pictures allows a natural way to construct iconic indexes for images. According to the cutting mechanism of the 2D C þ-string, an object may be partitioned into several subparts. The number of partitioned subparts is bounded to Oðn 2 Þ, where n is the number of(More)
