Outsourcing association rule mining to an outside service provider brings several important benefits to the data owner. These include (i) relief from the high mining cost, (ii) minimization of demands in resources, and (iii) effective centralized mining for multiple distributed owners. On the other hand, security is an issue; the service provider should be(More)
Despite the recent proliferation of work on semistruc-tured data models, there has been little work to date on supporting uncertainty in these models. In this paper, we propose a model for probabilistic semistructured data (PSD). The advantage of our approach is that it supports a flexible representation that allows the specification of a wide class of(More)
The design of an OLAP system for supporting real-time queries is one of the major research issues. One approach is to use data cubes, which are materialized precomputed multidimensional views of data in a data warehouse. We can derive a set of data cubes to answer each frequently asked query directly. However, there are two practical problems: (1) the(More)
Data mining is a new, important and fast growing database application. Outlier (exception) detection is one kind of data mining, which can be applied in a variety of areas like monitoring of credit card fraud and criminal activities in electronic commerce. With the ever-increasing size and attributes (dimensions) of database, previously proposed detection(More)
Finding frequent itemsets is the most costly task in association rule mining. Outsourcing this task to a service provider brings several benefits to the data owner such as cost relief and a less commitment to storage and computational resources. Mining results, however, can be corrupted if the service provider (i) is honest but makes mistakes in the mining(More)
TAX is perhaps the best known extension of the relational algebra to handle queries to XML databases. One problem with TAX (as with many existing relational DBMSs) is that the semantics of terms in a TAX DB are not taken into account when answering queries. Thus, even though TAX answers queries with 100% precision, the recall of TAX is relatively low. Our(More)
