In distributed association rule mining algorithm, one of the major and challenging hindrances is to reduce the communication overhead. Data sites are required to exchange lot of information in the data mining process which may generates massive communication overhead. In this paper we propose an association rule mining algorithm which minimizes the communication overhead among the participating data sites. Instead of transmitting all itemsets and their counts, we propose to transmit a binary… CONTINUE READING
