The output of boolean association rule mining algorithms is often too large for manual examination. For dense datasets, it is often impractical to even generate all frequent itemsets. The closed itemset approach handles this information overload by pruning "uninteresting" rules following the observation that most rules can be derived from other rules. In this paper, we propose a new framework, namely, the generalized closed (or g-closed) itemset framework. By allowing for a small tolerance in the accuracy of itemset supports, we show that the number of such redundant rules is far more than what was previously estimated. Our scheme can be integrated into both levelwise algorithms (Apriori) and two-pass algorithms (ARMOR). We evaluate its performance by measuring the reduction in output size as well as in response time. Our experiments show that incorporating gclosed itemsets provides significant performance improvements on a variety of databases.
