Abstract : In the field of infrastructures’ surveillance and protection, it is important to make decisions based on activities occurring in the environment and its local context and conditions. In this paper we use an active rule based event processing architecture in order to make sense of situations from the combination of different signals received by the rule engine. However obtaining some high level information automatically is not without risks, especially in sensitive environments, and detection mistakes can happen for various reasons: the signal’s source can be defective, whether it is human—miss-interpretation of the signal—or computed—material malfunction; the aggregation rules can be wrong syntaxically, for example when a rule will never be triggered or a situation never detected; the interpretation given to the combination of signals does not correspond to the reality on the field—because the knowledge of the rule designer is subjective or because the environment evolves over-time—the rules are therefore incorrect semantically. In this paper, a new approach is proposed to avoid the third kind of error sources. We present a hybrid machine learning technique adapted to the complexity of the rules’ representation, in order to create a system more conform to reality. The proposed approach uses a combination of an Association Rule Mining algorithm and Inductive Logic Programming for rule induction. Empirical studies on simulated datasets demonstrate how our method can contribute to sensible systems such as the security of a public or semi-public place.
