Rule induction for data exploration

Nabney, Ian T. and Grasl, O. (1991). Rule induction for data exploration. IN: Proceedings of Avignon 91: Expert systems and their applications. EC2 et Cie.


This paper describes how the statistical technique of cluster analysis and the machine learning technique of rule induction can be combined to explore a database. The ways in which such an approach alleviates the problems associated with other techniques for data analysis are discussed. We report the results of experiments carried out on a database from the medical diagnosis domain. Finally we describe the future developments which we plan to carry out to build on our current work.
