VIKAMINE – Open-Source Subgroup Discovery, Pattern Mining, and Analytics

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7524)


This paper presents an overview on the VIKAMINE system for subgroup discovery, pattern mining and analytics. As of VIKAMINE version 2, it is implemented as rich-client platform (RCP) application, based on the Eclipse framework. This provides for a highly-configurable environment, and allows modular extensions using plugins. We present the system, briefly discuss exemplary plugins, and provide a sketch of successful applications.
