Abstract : Under the term behavioral data, we consider any type of data featuring individuals performing observable actions on entities. For instance, voting data depicts parliamentarians who express their votes w.r.t. procedures. In this work, we address the problem of discovering exceptional (dis)agreement patterns in such data, i.e., groups of individuals that exhibit an unexpected mutual agreement under specific contexts compared to what is observed in overall terms. To tackle this problem, we design a generic approach, rooted in the Subgroup Discovery/Exceptional Model Mining framework, which enables the discovery of such patterns in two different ways. A branch-and-bound algorithm ensures an efficient exhaustive search of the underlying search space by leveraging closure operators and optimistic estimates on the interesting-ness measures. A second algorithm abandons the completeness by using a direct sampling paradigm which is provides an alternative when an exhaustive search approach becomes unfeasible. To illustrate the usefulness of discovering exceptional (dis)agreement patterns, we report a comprehensive experimental study on four real-world datasets relevant to three different application domains: political analysis, rating data analysis and healthcare surveillance.
