Most approaches to mining association rules implicitly consider the utilities of the itemsets to be equal. We assume that the utilities of itemsets may differ, and identify the high utility itemsets based on information in the transaction database and external information about utilities. Our theoretical analysis of the resulting problem lays the foundation(More)
The rationale behind mining frequent itemsets is that only itemsets with high frequency are of interest to users. However , the practical usefulness of frequent itemsets is limited by the significance of the discovered itemsets. A frequent item-set only reflects the statistical correlation between items, and it does not reflect the semantic significance of(More)
A pattern is of utility to a person if its use by that person contributes to reaching a goal. Utility based measures use the utilities of the patterns to reflect the user's goals. In this paper, we first review utility based measures for itemset mining. Then, we present a unified framework for incorporating several utility based measures into the data(More)
The discovery of FDs from databases has recently become a significant research problem. In this paper, we propose a new algorithm, called FD_Mine. FD_Mine takes advantage of the rich theory of FDs to reduce both the size of the dataset and the number of FDs to be checked by using discovered equivalences. We show that the pruning does not lead to loss of(More)
Five ab initio programs (FGENESH, GeneMark.hmm, GENSCAN, GlimmerR and Grail) were evaluated for their accuracy in predicting maize genes. Two of these programs, GeneMark.hmm and GENSCAN had been trained for maize; FGENESH had been trained for monocots (including maize), and the others had been trained for rice or Arabidopsis. Initial evaluations were(More)
We propose the first join tree (JT) propagation architecture that labels the probability information passed between JT nodes in terms of conditional probability tables (CPTs) rather than potentials. By modeling the task of inference involving evidence, we can generate three work schedules that are more time-efficient for LAZY propagation. Our experimental(More)
Present studies were carried out to decipher seizure-dependent changes in mitochondrial function and ultrastructure in rat hippocampus after status epilepticus (SE) induced by pilocarpine (PILO). Discernible mitochondrial ultrastructural damage was observed in the hippocampus. Enzyme assay revealed cytochrome oxidase (COX) activity significantly increased(More)
There has been significant progress in the development and deployment of Peer-to-Peer (P2P) live video streaming systems. However, there has been little study on the security aspect in such systems. Our prior experiences in Anysee exhibit that existing systems are largely vulnerable to intermediate attacks, in which the content pollution is a common attack(More)
