A new approach for measuring rule set consistency

Johan Huysmans, Bart Baesens, Jan Vanthienen
2007 Data & Knowledge Engineering  
A new measure is proposed and various examples show how this new measure can be used to decide between different algorithms and rule sets or to find out whether the rules in a knowledge base need to be  ...  Whereas the obtained rule set is usually evaluated by measuring its accuracy on a number of unseen examples, there are several other evaluation criteria, such as comprehensibility and consistency, that  ...  The new measure will therefore be able to measure similarity between different models without requiring an additional data set.  ...

Measuring Inconsistency in Answer Set Programs [chapter]

Markus Ulbricht, Matthias Thimm, Gerhard Brewka
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Further, we develop new measures for this setting and investigate their properties.  ...  While measuring inconsistency in classical logics has been investigated for some time now, taking the non-monotonicity of answer set semantics into account brings new challenges that have to be addressed  ...  We will cover both approaches. Our first measure I ± aims at measuring the distance of the program to a consistent one.  ...

On the Trade-off Between Consistency and Coverage in Multi-label Rule Learning Heuristics [article]

Michael Rapp, Eneldo Loza Mencía, Johannes Fürnkranz
2019 arXiv   pre-print
As our experiments reveal, the choice of the heuristic is not straight-forward, because a search for rules that optimize a measure locally does usually not result in a model that maximizes that measure  ...  In this work, we show empirically that it is crucial to trade off the consistency and coverage of rules differently, depending on which multi-label measure should be optimized by a model.  ...  The depicted standard deviations show that the optimal parameter settings for a respective measure may vary depending on the data set.  ...

Rule-based diagnostic system fusion

A. Zemirline, L. Lecornu, B. Solaiman
2007 2007 10th International Conference on Information Fusion  
In this work, we present a new fusion method that uses fuzzy set theory. This method is applied to the diagnostic system rule bases.  ...  The fusion method is characterized by a hybrid fusion which combines rule fusion approach with knowledge fusion approach. Knowledge fusion relies on the distortion measure of various bases.  ...  The knowledge fusion consists of attributing the confidence degree to each parameter of the new rule base diagnostic system.  ...

Interactive search of rules in medical data using multiobjective evolutionary algorithms

Daniela Zaharie, Diana Lungeanu, Flavia Zamfirache
2008 Proceedings of the 2008 GECCO conference companion on Genetic and evolutionary computation - GECCO '08  
In this work, we propose an approach for evolving rules from medical data based on an interactive multi-criteria evolutionary search: besides selecting the set of criteria and the sets of potential antecedent  ...  The marked rules are further used in estimating a supplementary optimization criterion which expresses the user's opinion on the rule quality and is taken into account in the evolutionary process.  ...  In the former approach, each element of the population is a set of rules, thus it deals well with the interaction between rules and is appropriate when looking for sets of rules defining a classifier.  ...

A fuzzy rule-based approach for screening international distribution centres

Santoso Wibowo, Hepu Deng
2012 Computers and Mathematics with Applications  
This paper presents a fuzzy rule-based approach to effectively screen decision alternatives in adequately solving the problem of evaluating and selecting IDC locations.  ...  A decision support system based on the proposed approach is presented to improve the effectiveness of the screening process.  ...  In this context, screening is the process of reducing a large set of alternatives to a smaller set for further evaluation [8] .  ...

Using Association Rules to Enrich Arabic Ontology

A. Ksiksi, H. Amiri
2018 Engineering, Technology & Applied Science Research  
In this article, we propose the use of a minimal generic base of associative rules between term association rules, to automatically enrich an existing domain ontology.  ...  Then, the matching of the candidate terms is done through the matching between the concepts of the initial ontology and the premises of the association rules, with three distance measures that we define  ...  These approaches consist of extracting rules association [7] between candidate terms [8] [9] [10] . At the end of the search process, a set of ARs between terms is generated.  ...

Knowledge revision in systems based on an informed tree search strategy

Patrick Taillandier, Cécile Duchêne, Alexis Drogoul
2008 Proceedings of the 5th international conference on Soft computing as transdisciplinary science and technology - CSTST '08  
Our approach consists in analysing the system execution logs and revising knowledge based on these logs by modelling the revision problem as a knowledge space exploration problem.  ...  The objective of the work presented in this paper is to propose an automatic knowledge revision approach for systems based on an informed tree search strategy.  ...  Partitioning of the measure set space Our general revision approach requires, as a first step, to partition the measure set into disjoint areas. The areas are defined by production rules.  ...
