Association rule learning - Software comparison

Computing association rule with TANAGRA, ORANGE and WEKA.

We must respect the following steps if we want to compute association rules from a dataset:
• Import the dataset;
• Select the descriptors;
• Set the parameters of the association rule algorithm i.e. the minimal support and the minimal confidence;
• Execute the algorithm and visualize the rules.

Our three packages use attribute-based dataset. Each attribute-value couple becomes an item which be used for generating rules.
