The increasing availabilities of tracking devices, including mobile devices and sports trackers with heart-rate monitors, accelerometers and GPS receivers, have increased the interest in developing fitness applications. The aims of these applications are to improve the motivations of athletes during training, as to track the histories of their sports activities, to advise the type of training for the future, and even to share this information with friends on social networks. This study proposes…

Supervised sequential pattern mining of event sequences in sport to identify important patterns of play: An application to rugby union

TLDR
This study applies a supervised sequential pattern mining algorithm called safe pattern pruning (SPP) to 490 labelled event sequences representing passages of play from one rugby team's matches from the 2018 Japan Top League, and evaluates the importance of the obtained sub-sequences to points-scoring outcomes.

Detecting Temporal Pattern Profiles from Smartphones for User Activity Analysis

TLDR
This work explores the design of a temporal pattern profile of a user based on sequential activity patterns that are automatically extracted from accelerometer readings in smartphones, using a methodology based on activity recognition and sequential pattern mining.

Discretized sequential pattern mining for behaviour classification

TLDR
A number of interesting findings were identified when varying the granularity and other settings for the various discretization parameters, solidifying the work as a significant advancement in the area of behavioural analysis with sequential pattern mining and classification on time series data.

Visualization of cycling training

TLDR
An analysis of data obtained during the cycling training sessions made by wearable sports tracker and later visualization of their most significant parameters to deduce difficulty, strain, effort, power, conditions and pace of the visualized sports training session is presented.

Design and Implementation of an Artificial Sports Trainer

TLDR
The artificial sports trainer serves as an intelligent system capable of both knowledge discovery from data and decision-making based on these inputs, which automates the tasks of the real sports trainer in disciplines where a lot of data are generated by wearable mobile devices.

SPEck: mining statistically-significant sequential patterns efficiently with exact sampling

TLDR
SPEck is described, a generic framework for significant sequential pattern mining, that can be instantiated with any null model, when given a procedure for sampling datasets according to the null distribution, and how exact samplers can be orders of magnitude faster than approximate ones, and scale well.

Visualizing Running Races through the Multivariate Time-Series of Multiple Runners

TLDR
This work presents a design study that aims to support analysis and answer several questions raised by an expert on exercise physiology about a given running race, and describes each visualization design and how they individually, or in collaboration, can be used to reveal interesting aspects of the data.

How Hard Am I Training? Using Smart Phones to Estimate Sport Activity Intensity

TLDR
This work studies how off-the-shelf smart phones with built-in accelerometers can be used to estimate the intensity of recreational sport activities and concludes that linear regression provides good intensity inference accuracy and is the most feasible to be implemented on a smart phone device.

Contrasting temporal trend discovery for large healthcare databases

Insights from Applying Sequential Pattern Mining to E-commerce Click Stream Data

TLDR
These findings indicate for instance that search terms alone are already quite effective for predicting users' add-to-basket actions and that using additional domain knowledge to generate multi-dimensional rules does not always lead to improved accuracy.

LAPIN-SPAM: An Improved Algorithm for Mining Sequential Pattern

TLDR
By combining SPAM, a new algorithm called LAst Position INduction Sequential PAttern Mining (abbreviated as LAPIN-SPAM) is proposed, which can efficiently get all the frequent sequential patterns from a large database.

TLDR
This work proposes a novel sequential pattern mining method, called Prefixspan (i.e., Prefix-projected - Ettern_ mining), which explores prejxprojection in sequential pattern Mining, and shows that Pre fixspan outperforms both the Apriori-based GSP algorithm and another recently proposed method; Frees pan, in mining large sequence data bases.

Mining sequential patterns in the B2B environment

TLDR
This paper introduces three conditions (constraints) — compactness, repetition, and recency — and considers them jointly with frequency in selecting sequential patterns and develops an efficient algorithm to discover frequent sequential patterns which satisfy the conditions.

Effective Next-Items Recommendation via Personalized Sequential Pattern Mining

TLDR
Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed framework effectively improves the efficiency for mining sequential patterns, increases the user-relevance of the identified frequent patterns, and most importantly, generates significantly more accurate next-items recommendation for the target users.
