Mahmood, Qazafi, Thabtah, Fadi and McCluskey, T.L. (2007) Looking at the class associative classification training algorithm. In: Proceedings of Computing and Engineering Annual Researchers' Conference 2007: CEARC’07. University of Huddersfield, Huddersfield, pp. 1-9.

Associative classification (AC) is a branch in data mining that utilises association rule discovery methods in classification problems. In this paper, we propose a new training method called Looking at the Class (LC), which can be adapted by any rule-based AC algorithm. Unlike the traditional Classification based on Association rule (CBA) training method, which joins disjoint itemsets regardless of their class labels, our method joins only itemsets with similar class labels during the training phase. This prevents the accumulation of too many unnecessary mergings during the learning step, and consequently results in huge saving in computational time and memory.
