Constraint Programming for Data Mining

Constraint programming has seduced the data mining community with its highly declarative approach and flexibility. However, these advantages do not offer a guarantee of efficiency. Evidence of this is that the CP-based methods have not yet been as efficient as the specialized methods. In our lab we investigate thoses problem and provide new Constraints and methods to tackles pattern mining problem. Our recent result has shown how profitable the hybridization of CP and Data mining can be for both communities.
