An Enhanced Application of Modified PSO for Association Rule Mining

Bharathi.T and P.Krishnakumari

In data mining, association rule learning is a well-liked and well explored technique for finding out interesting relatives in large databases along with variables. It analyzes and present strong rules discovered in databases by means of diverse measures of interestingness. As all know two important parameters, minimal support and confidence, are forever deciding by the decision-maker him/herself or in the course of trial-and-error; and thus, the previous algorithms be deficient in both objectiveness and competence. As a result, the main purpose of proposed work is to recommend an improved algorithm that can provide feasible threshold values for minimal support and confidence. Earliest particle swarm optimization algorithm investigates for the optimum fitness value of each particle and next discovers equivalent support and confidence as minimal threshold values subsequent to the data are distorted into binary values. To improve the feasibility of the work the modified PSO is developed to provide the feasible values. The modified PSO (Particle Swarm Optimization) algorithm has a number of swarm population size, the number of highest generation, and three predetermined parameters will be determined C_w, C_p,C_g. In each generation, the particle€™s position value in all measurements will be reserved or be updated by its pbest value or be updated by the gbest value or restored by generating a new random number.
