Project Award Information

  • Award Number: IDM IIS-0209199
  • Duration Aug. 2002-July 2006
  • Title: Mining Sequential and Structured Patterns: Scalability, Flexibility, Extensibility and Applicability
  • Keywords data mining, frequent pattern, sequential pattern, structured pattern, scalable mining algorithms, data mining applications.

Project Summary


This project  performs a systematic investigation of the principles, algorithms, and applications of scalable sequential and structured pattern mining, which covers the following issues: (1) development of highly scalable mining algorithms, including mining max-patterns, closed patterns and top-k patterns; (2) investigation of highly flexible mining methodologies, including mining of multi-dimensional multi-level sequential and structured patterns and constraint-based mining; (3) extension of the scope to cover sequential or structured pattern-based clustering; and (4) application of multi-dimensional, multi-level sequential or structured pattern mining for intrusion detection, Web mining, and other important applications. This will lead to a set of efficient, scalable, and flexible sequential and structured pattern mining methods for scientific and industrial applications.

Project Impact

 

o        Research Progress: A set of scalable algorithms and methods (as well as a set of software packages) are developed for mining various kinds of patterns and knowledge (including frequent patterns, sequential patterns, structured patterns, classification, and clustering) in large databases. Many of these methods, with further developments, can be used by industry and other agencies for scalable data mining applications.

 

o        Training: Three Ph.D. students (Deng Cai, Xifeng Yan, Ying Lu) and two Research Associates (Drs. Jiong Yang and Jianyong Wang) are partially supported by the project. In the meantime, our whole data mining group (with 13 Ph.D. students) has been greatly benefited by the support of this research project.

 

o       Education: Parts of this research are used in a Data Mining courses (CS412 and CS512) taught at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (2002-2006).

 

o       Collaborations: For this project we have established collaborations with IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, Microsoft Research, Google, Intel, and NCSA (National Center of Supercomputer Applications).  Through such collaborations we expect to have access to real datasets and applications and produce more research results.

Area Background

 

Mining frequent patterns, sequential patterns, and structured patterns efficiently in large databases has been an important theme in data mining with many applications.  There have been a lot of research activities in this direction.  Out work is built upon previous studies on scalable data mining methods, especially frequent and sequential pattern mining algorithms and explore its further extensions and applications.
