Classification Based on Association Rules

Travis-CI Build Status CRAN RStudio mirror downloads CRAN version

This R package is an extension of the package arules to perform association rule-based classification. It includes currently two classification algorithms. The first is the CBA algorithm described in Liu, et al. 1998. The second is a new weighted majority-vote based algorithm called bCBA which is currently being designed and tested. Time-critical sections of the code are implemented in C.

The package also provides support for supervised discretization and mining Class Association Rules (CARs).

Installation

Stable CRAN version: install from within R with

install.packages("arulesCBA")

Current development version:

library("devtools")
install_github("ianjjohnson/arulesCBA")

Usage

library("arulesCBA")
data("iris")
 
# learn a classifier using automatic default discretization
classifier <- CBA(Species ~ ., data = iris, supp = 0.05, conf = 0.9)
classifier

  CBA Classifier Object
  Class: Species=setosa, Species=versicolor, Species=virginica
  Default Class: Species=setosa
  Number of rules: 8
  Classification method: first 
  Description: CBA algorithm by Liu, et al. 1998 with support=0.05 and confidence=0.9

# make predictions for the first few instances of iris
predict(classifier, head(iris))

   [1] setosa setosa setosa setosa setosa setosa
   Levels: setosa versicolor virginica
