    Every year, the health of millions of people around the world is compromised by misdiagnosis, which sometimes could even lead to death. In addition, it entails huge financial costs for patients, insurance companies, and governments. Furthermore, many physicians’ professional life is adversely affected by unintended errors in prescribing medication or misdiagnosing a disease. Our aim in this paper is to use data mining methods to find knowledge in a dataset of medical prescriptions that can be effective in improving the diagnostic process. In this study, using 4 single classification algorithms including decision tree, random forest, simple Bayes, and K-nearest neighbors, the disease and its...

    , Article 2nd International Workshop on Contexts and Ontologies: Theory, Practice and Applications, C and O 2006 - Collocated with the 17th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence, ECAI 2006, Riva del Garda, 28 August 2006 through 28 August 2006 ; Volume 210 , 2006 ; 16130073 (ISSN) Bagheri Hariri, B ; Sayyadi, H ; Abolhassani, H ; Sheykh Esmaili, K ; Sharif University of Technology
    Several metrics have been proposed for recognition of relationships between elements of two Ontologies. Many of these methods select a number of such metrics and combine them to extract existing mappings. In this article, we present a method for selection of more effective metrics - based on data mining techniques. Furthermore, by having a set of metrics, we suggest a data-mining-like means for combining them into a better ontology alignment  

    Improve the classification and sales management of products using multi-relational data mining

    , Article 2011 IEEE 3rd International Conference on Communication Software and Networks, ICCSN 2011, Xi'an, 27 May 2011 through 29 May 2011 ; 2011 , Pages 329-337 ; 9781612844855 (ISBN) Houshmand, M ; Alishahi, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    There are some elements such as competition among companies and changes in demands which result in changes of customers' behaviors. Therefore, paying no attention to these changes may lead to a reduction in company benefits and loss of customers. Since data and their analyses determine the activities and decision makings of companies, data quality is of paramount in analyzing them because misinformation leads to wrong decision making. Since data mining has been designed to find out multi repetition patterns, it can be used to improve the product sales violations by sales people and increase the quality of data. Most of data mining models available try to find patterns in one table, but the...

    Grid computing is the on-demand sharing of computing resources with in a tightly-coupled network to solve certain problems. One of the main topics is knowledge discovery and data mining. By using grid computing, we can solve this problem. To achieve these very ambitious goals, we present an architecture for applying Association rule mining algorithms on grid environment. Association rule mining seeks to discover associations among transactions encoded in a database on each machine and then send result to related coordinator. This new architecture is powerful and rapid. We tried to compare our method with a serial processing. Our experimental results show that by using the new architecture on...

    In this research, a novel approach is developed to predict stocks return and risks. In this three stage method, through a comprehensive investigation all possible features which can be effective on stocks risk and return are identified. Then, in the next stage risk and return are predicted by applying data mining techniques for the given features. Finally, we develop a hybrid algorithm, on the basis of filter and function-based clustering; the important features in risk and return prediction are selected then risk and return re-predicted. The results show that the proposed hybrid model is a proper tool for effective feature selection and these features are good indicators for the prediction...

    The most common heart disease is Coronary artery disease (CAD). CAD is one of the main causes of heart attacks and deaths across the globe. Early diagnosis of this disease is therefore, of great importance. A large number of methods have thus far been devised for diagnosing CAD. Most of these techniques have been conducted on the basis of the Irvine dataset (University of California), which not only has a limited number of features but is also full of missing values and thus lacks reliability. The present study was designed to seek a new set, free from missing values, comprising features such as the functional class, dyspnea, Q wave, ST elevation, ST depression, and T inversion. Information...

M ; Alishahi, M ; Badie, K ; Sharif University of Technology
    The activities and decisions of organizations and companies are based on data and the information obtained from data analysis. Data quality plays a crucial role in data analysis, because the incorrect data leads to wrong decisions. Nowadays, improving the data quality manually is very difficult and in many cases is impossible as data quality is one of the complicated and non-structured concepts and data refinement process can not be done without the help of professional domain experts, and detection and correction of errors require a thorough knowledge in the related domain of the data. Thus, the necessity of using (semi-)automatic methods is discussed to find data defects and errors and...
