Available domain ontologies are increasing over the time. However there is a huge amount of data stored and managed with RDBMS. We propose a method for learning association rules from both sources of knowledge in an integrated way. The extracted patterns can be used for performing: data analysis, knowledge completion, ontology refinement.


Association Rule Frequent Itemsets Mining Association Rule Domain Ontology Support Threshold 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
