INTERESTINGNESS – A UNIFYING PARADIGM - Bipolar Function Composition

Iaakov Exman

Abstract

Interestingness is an important criterion by which we judge knowledge discovery. But, interestingness has escaped all attempts to capture its intuitive meaning into a concise and comprehensive form. A unifying paradigm is formulated by function composition. We claim that composition is bipolar – i.e. composition of exactly two functions – whose two semantic poles are relevance and unexpectedness. The paradigm generality is demonstrated by case studies of new interestingness functions, examples of known functions that fit the framework, and counter-examples for which the paradigm points out to the lacking pole.
