Discovering interesting rules: Association Rule Learning
We’ve been doing this podcast for over three years and I’m surprised that we had never come across and discussed the topic of association rules. Association rules is a mining technique that allows you to find rules in your data. It’s pretty intuitive when you see it but we were so surprised how hard it was to talk about during the show. Some resources that we encountered to get our head around the topic: We take a look at this example: http://www.saedsayad.com/association_rules.htm during our conversationAssociation Rules: https://towardsdatascience.com/association-rules-2-aa9a77241654mlxtend Association rules documentation and example: http://rasbt.github.io/mlxtend/user_guide/frequent_patterns/association_rules/Extracting Rules from Medical Health Records: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1877050917319658Association Rule Learning Wikipedia Article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Association_rule_learning We know that talking about some of these topics is difficult and sometimes it’s hard to follow and sometimes we don’t actually convey the message easily. We hope that our conversations spark some ideas, ignite you to try some of the code yourself, or do your own research. Please email us if our shows have spoken to you in way way or another.
