In the traditional frequent itemsets mining on transactional databases, which items have no weight (equal weight, as equal to 1). However, in real world applications are often each item has a different weight (the importance/significance of each item). Therefore, we need to mining weighted/significance itemsets on transactional databases. In this paper, we propose a high-performance algorithm called HPM-FSI for mining frequent significance itemsets based on approach NOT satisfy the downward closure property (a great challenge). The experimental results show that the proposed algorithms perform better than other existing algorithms on both real-life and synthetic datasets.
