There is much recent work on detecting and tracking change in clusters, often based on the study of the spatiotemporal properties of a cluster. For the many applications where cluster change is relevant, among them customer relationship management, fraud detection and marketing, it is also necessary to provide insights about the nature of cluster change: Is(More)
One of the most important operations involving Data Mining patterns is computing their similarity. In this paper we present a general framework for comparing both simple and complex patterns, i.e., patterns built up from other patterns. Major features of our framework include the notion of structure and measure similarity, the possibility of managing(More)
The flow of data generated from low-cost modern sensing technologies and wireless telecommunication devices enables novel research fields related to the management of this new kind of data and the implementation of appropriate analytics for knowledge extraction. In this work, we investigate how the traditional data cube model is adapted to trajectory(More)
In this demonstration paper, we present gRecs, a system for group recommendations that follows a collaborative strategy. We enhance recommendations with the notion of support to model the confidence of the recommendations. Moreover, we propose partitioning users into clusters of similar ones. This way, recommendations for users are produced with respect to(More)
Clustering of high dimensional data streams is an important problem in many application domains, a prominent example being network monitoring. Several approaches have been lately proposed for solving independently the dierent aspects of the problem. There exist methods for clustering over full dimensional streams and methods for nding clusters in subspaces(More)
Trajectory Database (TD) management is a relatively new topic of database research, which has emerged due to the explosion of mobile devices and positioning technologies. Trajectory similarity search forms an important class of queries in TD with applications in trajectory data analysis and spatiotemporal knowledge discovery. In contrast to related works(More)
Recommendation systems have received significant attention , with most of the proposed methods focusing on personal recommendations. However, there are contexts in which the items to be suggested are not intended for a single user but for a group of people. For example, assume a group of friends or a family that is planning to watch a movie or visit a(More)
Data Mining techniques are commonly used to extract patterns, like association rules and decision trees, from huge volumes of data. The comparison of patterns is a fundamental issue, which can be exploited, among others, to synthetically measure dissimilarities in evolving or different datasets and to compare the output produced by different data mining(More)
