Research on the Improved Apriori Based on Rough Set Method
The paper adopts the knowledge reduction method in Rough Set theory to adjust Apriori Algorithm and proposes “Itemset Reduction Method”to reduce the amount of the candidate sets and improve the effeciency of the algorithm. In the experiments of the research, the results of both the improved algorithm and Apriori Algorithm are compared, and ideal results are gained.
