Abstract: High utility itemset mining is one of the key research areas in data mining in recent years. The main challenge in high utility itemset mining is the exponential growth space for finding the high utility itemsets. Several algorithms were proposed to mine high utility itemsets and all of them suffer because of the huge search space. Genetic Algorithms (GA) are now attracting researchers since it reduces the search space tremendously. In this paper, a novel algorithm based on Artificial Bee Colony PHUIM-ABC is proposed to mine the periodic high utility itemsets. During initial phase, the transaction database is scanned to find the 1-High Transaction Weighted Utility Itemsets (1-HTWUI). The 1-HTWUI is used as measured as the parameter in assigning the onlooker bee. Five real life data sets are used to evaluate the performance of the proposed algorithm with the existing state-of-art algorithms .The execution time and memory usage are the parameters used to measure the performance. Experimental results show that the proposed PHUIM-ABC algorithm performs better than the state-of-art non heuristic algorithms.
