RuleML 2014 Special Track: Learning (Business) Rules from Data
Papers submitted to the track could address (among others) extraction of business rules from sets of fuzzy, uncertain and possibly conflicting rules learned from data and bridging the gap between rules as "correlations" in the data and rules that can be used in business rule management systems.
- Learning Action, Association, Decision and Constraint Rules from Data
- Extracting business rules from decision trees and rule sets induced from data
- Non-monotonic, uncertain and defeasible reasoning to resolve conflicting rules
- Enhancing rule learning processes with domain knowledge
- Fuzzy and probabilistic extensions to rule markup languages (SBVR, RuleML, PMML)
- Rule interest/quality measures suitable for business rule learning
- Learning disjunctive and negative rules in business rules context
