It is a well-known fact that the data mining process can generate many hundreds and often thousands of patterns from data. [...] Key Method These so-called interestingness measures are generally divided into two categories: objective measures based on the statistical strengths or properties of the discovered patterns and subjective measures that are derived from the user's beliefs or expectations of their particular problem domain. We evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the various interestingness measures…Expand
A Survey of Interestingness Measures for Association Rules
TLDR
This paper presents a review of the available literature on the various interestingness measures, and sums up twelve measure criteria which are concerned by many researchers and evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of the two categories of measures. Expand
Probabilistic Measures for Interestingness of Deviations - A Survey
TLDR
A brief survey of the current state of literature around interestingness of deviations, i.e. outliers with specific interest around probabilistic measures using Bayesian belief networks is reviewed. Expand
Knowledge discovery interestingness measures based on unexpectedness
TLDR
Different methods for assessing the unexpectedness of patterns with a special focus on frequent itemsets, tiles, association rules, and classification rules are surveyed, namely, syntactical and probabilistic approaches. Expand
Modeling of the counter-examples and association rules interestingness measures behavior
TLDR
Three modelings of counter-examples are presented and the consequences of such modelizations on two important desired properties of association rules interestingness measures, that are the decrease with the number of counterexamples and the tolerance to the apparition of the first countereXamples are examined. Expand
Subjective Interestingness in Association Rule Mining: A Theoretical Analysis
TLDR
This work proposes and construct a theoretical framework for studying subjective interestingness in association rule mining, and attempts to fit prior work done on subjectiveinterestingness into this framework, thus identifying relevant research gaps. Expand
Ascertaining Data Mining Rules Using Statistical Approaches
TLDR
This research investigates how to combine data mining and statistical measurement techniques to arrive at more reliable and interesting set of rules, greatly essential to conquer the data overload in practical problems. Expand
Are we really discovering ''interesting'' knowledge from data?
TLDR
A critical review of the literature on discovering comprehensible, interesting knowledge from data, focusing only on the problem of maximizing the accuracy of the discovered patterns, ignoring other important pattern-quality criteria that are user-oriented, such as comprehensibility and interestingness. Expand
Behavior-based clustering and analysis of interestingness measures for association rule mining
TLDR
By clustering based on ranking behavior, this paper highlights, and formally prove, previously unreported equivalences among interestingness measures, and shows that domain knowledge is essential to the selection of an appropriate interestingness measure for a particular task and business objective. Expand
Association Rule Interestingness Measures: Experimental and Theoretical Studies
TLDR
A formal and an experimental study of 20 measures of association rule interestingness measures and the properties are used in a multi-criteria decision analysis in order to select amongst the available measures the one or those that best take into account the user’s needs. Expand
Interestingnesslab: A Framework for Developing and Using Objective Interestingness Measures
TLDR
With Interestingnesslab, a tool of the objective interestingness measures is developed in the R language that can automatically calculate the interestingness values of the patterns by using those measures, and is the framework for rapidly developing the applications related to objectiveinterestingness measures.

Selecting the right interestingness measure for association patterns
TLDR
An overview of various measures proposed in the statistics, machine learning and data mining literature is presented and it is shown that each measure has different properties which make them useful for some application domains, but not for others. Expand
Unexpectedness as a Measure of Interestingness in Knowledge Discovery
TLDR
This research focuses on providing methods that generate unexpected patterns with respect to managerial intuition by eliciting managers' beliefs about the domain and using these beliefs toseed the search for unexpected patterns in data. Expand
On Subjective Measures of Interestingness in Knowledge Discovery
TLDR
The purpose of this paper is to lay the groundwork for a comprehensive study of subjective measures of interestingness and classify these measures into actionable and unexpected, and examine the relationship between them. Expand
Finding Interesting Patterns Using User Expectations
TLDR
In this paper, a technique to prevent the user from being overwhelmed by the large number of patterns, techniques are needed to rank them according to their interestingness, called the user-expectation method. Expand
Exception Rule Mining with a Relative Interestingness Measure
TLDR
This paper presents a method for mining exception rules based on a novel measure which estimates interestingness relative to its corresponding common sense rule and reference rule and shows through the experiments how this proposed relative measure can give an unbiased estimate of relative interestingness in a rule considering already mined rules. Expand
Interestingness via what is not interesting
TLDR
This work presents a simple and short process of eliminating a substantial portion of uninteresting association rules in a list outputted by a data-mining algorithm, and presents representative results of executions of the algorithm over three real databases. Expand
A Metric for Selection of the Most Promising Rules
TLDR
A metric for selection of the n rules with the highest average distance between them is proposed and it is defended that applying the metric to select the rules that are more distant improves the system prediction capabilities against other criteria for rule selection. Expand
