Granular association rule mining through parametric rough sets for cold start recommendation [article]

Fan Min, William Zhu
2013 arXiv   pre-print
With the lower approximation operator in the new parametric rough sets, a backward algorithm is designed for the rule mining problem.  ...  In this paper, we propose a new type of parametric rough sets on two universes to study this problem. The model is deliberately defined such that the parameter corresponds to one threshold of rules.  ...  Here 45%, 6%, 40%, and 30% are the source coverage, the target coverage, the source confidence, and the target confidence, respectively.  ...

Preference Mining Using Neighborhood Rough Set Model on Two Universes

Kai Zeng
2016 Computational Intelligence and Neuroscience  
In this paper, we propose a new model, called parametric neighborhood rough set on two universes (NRSTU), to describe the user and item data structures.  ...  Furthermore, the neighborhood lower approximation operator is used for defining the preference rules. Then, we provide the means for recommending items to users by using these rules.  ...  Then they use the definition of approximation operator in rough set theory for generating association rules between users and items.  ...

A method for constructing a confidence bound for the actual error rate of a prediction rule in high dimensions

Kevin K. Dobbin
2008 Biostatistics  
Constructing a confidence interval for the actual, conditional error rate of a prediction rule from multivariate data is problematic because this error rate is not a population parameter in the traditional  ...  Coverage probabilities of the new method are shown to be nominal or conservative over a wide range of scenarios. The new method is relatively simple to implement and not computationally burdensome.  ...  In actual practical implementation with estimatedĜ, the value of Upperbound is computationally burdensome to estimate precisely, but in real-world settings, a rough 2-digit approximation is usually adequate  ...
