Sequence Databases & Sequential Patterns n n n Transaction databases, time-series databases vs. sequence databases Frequent patterns vs. (frequent) sequential patterns Applications of sequential pattern mining n Customer shopping sequences: n First buy computer, then CD-ROM, and then digital camera, within 3 months. n Medical treatments, natural disasters (e. g. , earthquakes), science & eng. processes, stocks and markets, etc. n Telephone calling patterns, Weblog click streams n Program execution sequence data sets n DNA sequences and gene structures 3

What Is Sequential Pattern Mining? n Given a set of sequences, find the complete set of frequent subsequences A sequence : < (ef) (ab) (df) c b > A sequence database SID 10 20 30 40 sequence <(ad)c(bc)(ae)> <(ef)(ab)(df)cb>

Challenges on Sequential Pattern Mining n n A huge number of possible sequential patterns are hidden in databases A mining algorithm should n n n find the complete set of patterns, when possible, satisfying the minimum support (frequency) threshold be highly efficient, scalable, involving only a small number of database scans be able to incorporate various kinds of user-specific constraints 5

Sequential Pattern Mining Algorithms n Concept introduction and an initial Apriori-like algorithm n n Agrawal & Srikant. Mining sequential patterns, ICDE’ 95 Apriori-based method: GSP (Generalized Sequential Patterns: Srikant & Agrawal @ EDBT’ 96) n Pattern-growth methods: Free. Span & Prefix. Span (Han et al. @KDD’ 00; Pei, et al. @ICDE’ 01) n Vertical format-based mining: SPADE ([email protected] Leanining’ 00) n Constraint-based sequential pattern mining (SPIRIT: Garofalakis, Rastogi, [email protected]’ 99; Pei, Han, Wang @ CIKM’ 02) n Mining closed sequential patterns: Clo. Span (Yan, Han & Afshar @SDM’ 03) 6

The Apriori Property of Sequential Patterns n A basic property: Apriori (Agrawal & Sirkant’ 94) n If a sequence S is not frequent n Then none of the super-sequences of S is frequent n E. g,

GSP—Generalized Sequential Pattern Mining n n n GSP (Generalized Sequential Pattern) mining algorithm n proposed by Agrawal and Srikant, EDBT’ 96 Outline of the method n Initially, every item in DB is a candidate of length-1 n for each level (i. e. , sequences of length-k) do n scan database to collect support count for each candidate sequence n generate candidate length-(k+1) sequences from length-k frequent sequences using Apriori n repeat until no frequent sequence or no candidate can be found Major strength: Candidate pruning by Apriori 8

Finding Length-1 Sequential Patterns n n n Examine GSP using an example Initial candidates: all singleton sequences n , **, , **

GSP: Generating Length-2 Candidates ** **

51 length-2 Candidates <(ab)> <(ac)> <(ad)> <(ae)> <(af)> <(bc)> <(bd)> <(be)> <(bf)> <(cd)> <(ce)> <(cf)> <(de)> <(df)> <(ef)> Without Apriori property, 8*8+8*7/2=92 candidates Apriori prunes 44. 57% candidates 10

The GSP Mining Process 5 th scan: 1 cand. 1 length-5 seq. pat. Cand. cannot pass sup. threshold <(bd)cba> Cand. not in DB at all 4 th scan: 8 cand. 6 length-4 seq. ** **

**Candidate Generate-and-test: Drawbacks n A huge set of candidate sequences generated n n Especially 2 -item candidate sequence Multiple Scans of database needed n The length of each candidate grows by one at each database scan n Inefficient for mining long sequential patterns n A long pattern grow up from short patterns n The number of short patterns is exponential to the length of mined patterns 12

The SPADE Algorithm n SPADE (Sequential PAttern Discovery using Equivalent Class) developed by Zaki 2001 n A vertical format sequential pattern mining method n A sequence database is mapped to a large set of n n Item:

The SPADE Algorithm 14

Bottlenecks of GSP and SPADE n A huge set of candidates could be generated n 1, 000 frequent length-1 sequences generate s huge number of length-2 candidates! n Multiple scans of database in mining n Breadth-first search n Mining long sequential patterns n Needs an exponential number of short candidates n A length-100 sequential pattern needs 1030 candidate sequences! 15

Finding Seq. Patterns with Prefix n Only need to consider projections w. r. t. n -projected database: n <(abc)(ac)d(cf)> n <(_d)c(bc)(ae)> n n n <(_b)(df)cb> <(_f)cbc> SID 10 20 30 40 sequence <(ad)c(bc)(ae)> <(ef)(ab)(df)cb>

**Efficiency of Prefix. Span n No candidate sequence needs to be generated n Projected databases keep shrinking n Major cost of Prefix. Span: Constructing projected databases n Can be improved by pseudo-projections 20

**

Speed-up by Pseudo-projection n Major cost of Prefix. Span: projection n Postfixes of sequences often appear repeatedly in recursive projected databases n When (projected) database can be held in main memory, use pointers to form projections n Pointer to the sequence n Offset of the postfix s= s|: ( , 2) <(abc)(ac)d(cf)>

Pseudo-Projection vs. Physical Projection n Pseudo-projection avoids physically copying postfixes n n However, it is not efficient when database cannot fit in main memory n n Efficient in running time and space when database can be held in main memory Disk-based random accessing is very costly Suggested Approach: n n Integration of physical and pseudo-projection Swapping to pseudo-projection when the data set fits in memory 22
