Peter Patrick Wakabi-Waiswa defended his PhD titled: Association Rule Mining Using Evolutionary Computing

In his findings, Wakabi proposes genetic algorithms€based techniques aimed at narrowing the existing gaps in the association rule mining arena including algorithmic complexity and scaling methods in ARM environments. He suggests a new algorithm to generate association rules using five rule quality metrics (comprehensibility, confidence, J-measure, surprise and lift). This combination of rule quality metrics permits a user to evaluate the association rules on the difl¬erent metrics in a single algorithm run.
