Sample text

2 [KDJR14] Assuming that a, b and d are stable attribute, flexible attribute and decision attribute respectively in S, expressions (a, a2 ), (b, b1 → b2 ), (d, d1 → d2 ) are examples of atomic action sets. Expression (a, a2 ) means that the value a2 of attribute a remains unchanged, (b, b1 → b2 ) that value of attribute b is changed from b1 to b2 . Expression r = [{(a, a2 ) ∧ (b, b1 → b2 )} ⇒ {(d, d1 → d2 )}] is an example of an action rule meaning that if value a2 of a remains unchanged and value of b will change from b1 to b2 , then the value of d will be expected to transition from d1 to d2 .

Then, for each such k, each combination of k cut points in v p with each combination of l cut points in vq must be taken to calculate ρ(q, p), where l creates a subsequence of a vector vq of the length the same as subsequence of a vector v p , created by k cut points creates a in v p . 7 Conclusion In this chapter, a theoretical background for knowledge discovery approach to build recommender system, including concepts of action rules, meta actions was presented. Also, recent strategies in action rule discovery were investigated, as well as challenges associated with the novelty of meta actions applications.

Action rules seem to be especially promising in the field of medical data, as a doctor can examine the effect of treatment decisions on a patient’s improved state [Tho11]. For example, in the tinnitus dataset, such indicator of tracking improvement progress would be total score attribute, calculated as sum of Newman form (Tinnitus Handicap Inventory—see Appendix C) responses. Meta-actions would, on the other hand, represent treatments, prescribed by doctors to their patients (in tinnitus case— counseling, instrumentation and their fitting).
