Abstract: Association rule mining is an important topic in data mining field. In a given large database of customer transactions. Each transaction consists of items purchased by a customer in a visit. Apriori algorithm that generates all significant association rules between items in the database. On the basis of the association rule mining and Apriori algorithm, this paper proposes an improved algorithm based on the Ant Colony Optimization algorithm. We can optimize the result generated by Apriori algorithm using Ant colony optimization algorithm. The algorithm improved result produces by Apriori algorithm. Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) is a metaheuristic inspired by the foraging behavior of ant colonies. ACO was introduced by Dorigo and has evolved significantly in the last few years.
Keywords: Association rule mining, Apriori algorithm, Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) algorithm, data mining.
