Abstract: Rule discovery is one of the central tasks of data mining. Existing research has produced many algorithms for the purpose. These algorithms, however, often generate too many rules. In the past few years, rule interestingness techniques were proposed to help the user find interesting rules. These techniques typically employ the dataset as a whole to mine rules, and then filter and/or rank the discovered rules in various ways. In this paper, we argue that this is insufficient. These techniques are unable to answer a question that is of critical importance to the application of rules, i.e., can the rules be trusted? In practice, the users are always concerned with the question. They want to know whether the rules indeed represent some true and stable (or reliable) underlying relationships in the domain. If a rule is not stable, does it show any systematic pattern such as a trend? Before any rule can be used, these questions must be answered. This paper proposes a technique to use statistical methods to analyze rules from the temporal dimension to answer these questions. Experimental results show that the proposed technique is very effective. © 2001 IEEE.
