EasyMiner easy association rule mining

R packages

EasyMiner/R is powered by several R packages.

  • The arules package from Christian Borgelt
  • Our rCBA package, which implements Classification based on associations (CBA) algorithm, and offers automatic tuning of confidence and support thresholds.

If you do not need graphical user interface or REST API, you can also use these packages directly. The rCBA package requires rJava (R - Java bridge properly setup).

There is also an alternate package arc without the rJava dependency. This package uses slightly different algorithm for confidence and support tuning, and additionally offers built-in support for automatic handling of numerical attributes on both sides of the rules.
