Discarding global unpromising items (DGU)**Discard the information of unpromising items from the database since an unpromising item plays no role in high utility itemsets.**Generating PHUIs from the global UP-Tree**• Start from the bottom of the header table. • By tracing the nodes to root, tree paths • (D->A->C:1, 8) (D->B->A->E->C:1, 25) (D->B->E->C:1, 20) the support count the path utility -**Path utility of a path in a CPB of node X**= node {X}.nu • Path utility of an item in a path in a CPB of node X = node {X}.nu • Path utility of an item in a CPB of node X add the path utility of an item in all the path together in a CPB • Local promising item in a CPB An item is Y called a local promising item in {X}-CPB if pu(Y, {X}-CPB)min_util; otherwise, Y is called a local unpromising item.**{D}’s conditional UP-Tree**{D}-Tree**Generating PHUIs from {D}-Tree**A set of PHUIs which are involved with item {D} are obtained. {{D}:58, {DE}:45, {DEB}:45, {DEC}:45, {DEBC}:45, {DB}:45, {DBC}:45, {DC}:53}**Consider the next item.**• After finding all PHUIs, high utility itemsets and their utilities are identified from the set of PHUIs by scanning original database once.**Decreasing node utilities in construction of a global**UP-Tree • An item doesn’t appear in its ancestor’s conditional pattern base, but the utility of the item is involved in the path utilities of the paths in its ancestor’s CPB. • Any item which is a descendant of the node {B} will not appear in {B}-CPB. Therefore, the utilities of {B}’s descendants can be removed from the path utility of each path in {B}-CPB. The process can be done during the construction of global UP-Tree since the paths in the conditional pattern bases are directly derived from the global UP-Tree.**:1,1**:1,6**Strategy 2. Discarding global node utilities(DGN)**For any node in a global UP-Tree, the utilities of its descendants are discarded from the utility of the node during the construction of a global UP-Tree.**By applying strategy DGN, the utilities of the nodes which**are closer to the root of the global UP-Tree are effectively reduced. • DGN strategy is especially suitable for the database which contains lots of long transactions since the more items are in the transactions and the more utilities can be discarded by DGN.**Outline**• Introduction • Problem definition • Related work • Proposed method • The proposed data structure: UP-Tree • The proposed mining method: UP-Growth • Discussion
