### VC dimension in data mining

Can someone please explain to me (with normal language) - how is VC dimension related to data mining (frequent itemset mining - PAC learning). (incl. how we define range space as it's written in ...

### Upper bound on the size of a Concept Lattice (Galois Lattice)?

A context is a tuple $(O, A, R)$ where $O$ is the set of objects, $A$ the set of attributes and $R \subseteq O\times A$ is a relation. For $o \in O$ and $a \in A$ we read $oRa$ as the object $o$ ...

### Upper bound to number of closed itemsets

Given a set $I$ of $n$ items, and a collection $D$ of $m<2^n$ subsets of $I$, a closed itemset is a subset $A$ of $I$ that is contained in strictly more elements of $D$ than any of its proper ...

### Finding most informative feature subsets given dataset, clustering algorithm and gold standard partition

I have an $n \times m$ matrix of data $\mathbf{D}$ as well as a $k$-partition $P$ of $n$ indices each representing a row in a dataset. Assuming an arbitrary clustering algorithm $A$, I would like to ...

### Is there a way to detect search engine bias?

Search engines are increasingly being relied on as information gatekeepers, yet the criteria used by search engines to rank results is opaque to users. How can users be sure their results aren't ...
