Ontology-Based Group Pattern Discovery Systems for Mining Multiple Data Sources

Funding: 2005: $55,000

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Discovery Projects)

Start year: 2005

Summary: Pattern discovery from multiple data sources (MDS) is about finding patterns from different data sources. It becomes one of the crucial techniques because of globalization, e-commerce and online collaboration between organizations. This project will develop group pattern discovery systems for identifying useful patterns from MDSs based on local-pattern-analysis for attacking the MDS problem, mainly including a logical system for information enhancing, a logical system for solving conflictions, and a pattern discovery system. Our innovative method will lead to greatly reducing search cost and generating many more useful patterns. This project will deliver an ontology-based hybrid system for mining MDSs.
