Decision rules and databases in web pages classification

Krzysztof Czajkowski


This paper concerns applying of rough sets theory to web pages classification. In this work the approach integrating elements of rough sets theory with databases was proposed, which the aim is improving of the efficiency as well as processing of data in the place of them store. The paper describes implementations of algorithms of core attributes and reducts selection as well as decision rules determining. The aim is web pages classifications on the basis of decision rules and the set of features describing individual web pages.
