Frequent-itemset mining only considers the frequency of occurrence of the items but does not reflect any other factors, such as price or profit. Utility mining is an extension of frequent-itemset mining, considering cost, profit or other measures from user preference. Traditionally, the utility of an itemset is the summation of the utilities of the itemset(More)
The average utility measure reveals a better utility effect of combining several items than the original utility measure. In this paper, we propose a two-phase average-utility mining algorithm that can incrementally maintain the high average-utility itemsets as a database grows. Based on the concept of the FUP algorithm, the proposed algorithm combines the(More)
