1996 Asia Fuzzy Society Symposium

Special Session:

Rough sets and fuzzy sets are complementary generalizations of
classical sets. Fuzzy sets allow partial set memberships to handle
vagueness, while rough sets allow multiple set memberships to deal
with indiscernibility.

Data Mining, or Knowledge Discovery from Databases, brings together
research directions in databases theory, and artificial intelligence,
to help discover potentially significant patterns and facts from large
databases. Rough set theory provides a methodology for simplifying
and reducing the extraneous information in a database, thus exposing
any underlying patterns. Typical issues are the discovery of data
dependencies, the discovery of predictive rules, representation of
data, etc.

This special session will allow researchers to present their most
recent work in the study and application of various rough set-based
methodologies to data mining.
