Rule mining consists of discovering valid and useful rules in large databases. As other data mining tasks, it is known to be time-consuming and I/O intensive. Evolutionary algorithms and parallelism are two important ways to deal with that performance problem. In this paper, we propose a parallel genetic algorithm for rule discovery, namelyPGA RM .
