Web page classification is one of the essential techniques for Web mining because classifying Web pages of an interesting class is often the first step of mining the Web. However, constructing a classifier for an interesting class requires laborious preprocessing such as collecting positive and negative training examples. For instance, in order to construct(More)
Web page classification is one of the essential techniques for Web mining. Specifically, classifying Web pages of a user-interesting class is the first step of mining interesting information from the Web. However, constructing a classifier for an interesting class requires laborious pre-processing such as collecting positive and negative training examples.(More)
Graphs are used to model many real objects such as social networks and web graphs. Many real applications in various fields require efficient and effective management of large-scale graph structured data. Although distributed graph engines such as GBase and Pregel handle billion-scale graphs, the user needs to be skilled at managing and tuning a distributed(More)
Analyzing the executions of a buggy software program is essentially a data mining process. Although many interesting methods have been developed to trace crashing bugs (such as memory violation and core dumps), it is still difficult to analyze noncrashing bugs (such as logical errors). In this paper, we develop a novel method to classify the structured(More)
Support vector machines (SVMs) have been promising methods for classification and regression analysis because of their solid mathematical foundations which convery several salient properties that other methods hardly provide. However, despite the prominent properties of SVMs, they are not as favored for large-scale data mining as for pattern recognition or(More)
A topic directory, e.g., Yahoo directory, provides a view of a document set at different levels of abstraction and is ideal for the interactive exploration and visualization of the document set. We present a method that dynamically generates a topic directory from a document set using a frequent closed termset mining algorithm. Our method shows experimental(More)
Traditional Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery algorithms assume free access to data, either at a centralized location or in federated form. Increasingly, privacy and security concerns restrict this access, thus derailing data mining projects. What we need is distributed knowledge discovery that is sensitive to this problem. The key is to obtain valid(More)
