[SOLVED] Applying Association Rule after generating Association Rule

edited November 2019 in Help
Hi team
Please help me in using process "Applying Association Rules" to a dataset.
I have a data with CustomerID, ProductName, Revenue
I created a set of association rule based on the above metrics (revenue used as weight)
Now I want to create a data set which has one more column(s) showing Recommended product based on association rules created above.

I tried using process"Applying Association Rules", but it asks for some binary variable, actually it says revenue should be binary!!!

Please help and suggest solution to this

Thanks
Deepak

    Hi Deepak,

    most probably you have applied FP-Growth before Create Association Rules. You should pass the same data set you passed into FP-Growth into Create Association Rules.
    If my assumption is not true, please provide your processes and a detailed description of your data.

    Best regards,
    Marius

    Hi Marius,
    Thanks for the reply, It's working now :)

    Now I am struggling to interpret the results of the output after applying Association rules, the results are as below
    List of ID's and columns representing existing product names with values as true/ false (if product is subscribed/not subscribed)
    and few new columns as "Confidence(prod1)", "Confidence(prod2)" etc. having values 1/0.
    I assume that these column may be recommended products, but a close inspection shows some products in recommended list are already subscribed

    Any thoughts on this
    Regards
    Deepak

    Indeed the 0/1 indicates recommendations. In fact some of the products can already be subscribed. The reasoning is the following. Suppose the following rule:
    [A,C] => B

    And the user has the products [A, B, C]. Then the rule matches, and B is suggested.
    I will add an internal feature request to check for these duplicates, though.

    Best regards,
    Marius
