environments for natural induction: STAR-AQ19/AQ21

(Michalski, Wojtusiak, Kaufman, Bloedorn, Fischthal, Rosenbach)

This project is concerned with developing an integrated system of programs for conducting experiments and developing applications in the areas of machine learning and data mining. The system STAR, being developed, aims at integrating AQ-based natural induction systems, such as AQ19 and AQ21, with a number of utility programs. The STAR system will include:

- AQ19/AQ21: Natural induction systems for generating attributional rulesets from examples
- ATEST1/ATEST2: A program for testing attributional rulesets on testing data using a number of strict and flexible rule-matching methods
- AQ17-DCI: A program for data-driven constructive induction using the AQ methodology.
- AQ17-HCI: A program for hypothesis-driven constructive induction using the AQ methodology.
- KV1/KV2: Programs for diagrammatic visualization of discrete data and attributional rules
- RT: A program for determining task-optimized decision trees from decision rules
- VARSEL: A program for selecting the most relevant attributes for a given learning task, using the PROMISE method
- ESEL: A program for selecting the most useful and representative examples for a given learning task
- MAR: A program for generating multihead attributional rules from single-head rules. Such rules can be viewed as a generalization of association rules.
- CAG: A program that visualizes attributional rules in the form of association graphs
- EPIC: A program for testing attributional rulesets on episodes (sequences of events viewed as a whole)
