Abstract : In many real-world data analysis tasks, we have different types of data over the same objects or entities, perhaps because the data originate from distinct sources or are based on different terminologies. In order to understand such data, an intuitive approach is to identify the correspondences that exist between these different aspects. This is the motivating principle behind redescription mining, a data analysis task that aims at finding distinct common characterizations of the same objects. This paper provides a short overview of redescription mining; what it is and how it is connected to other data analysis methods; the basic principles behind current algorithms for redescription mining; and examples and applications of redescription mining for real-world data analysis problems.
