Senior computer science major Abbie Seale worked on a project with University of North Texas researchers last summer, and their work titled “A Novel Implementation of FHUQI-Miner, TKQ and FCHM Algorithms for High-Utility Itemset Mining to Predict User Behavior Using Smartphone Context Events” recently was presented at the 21st International Conference on Information in Las Vegas, NV. Now it will be published in a special volume dedicated to the conference and released in June 2024 by Springer Nature Switzerland.

Seale’s participation on the project was funded by the National Science Foundation’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program.

“Being a part of this REU has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my academic career,” said Seale. “The courses I have taken at Rhodes prepared me exceptionally well for the demands of the project and application process. Being able to use what I have learned during my time at Rhodes to undertake a formal research project reinforced my plans to pursue research in my post-graduate journey. I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity and for all the Rhodes professors who contributed to me being able to reach this accomplishment.”
