Abstract: Data mining algorithms produce information of a statistical nature that contains accurate and reliable knowledge. However, in many cases these algorithms do not discover hidden facts which may be interesting to users. Therefore, the recent aim of knowledge discovery in databases (KDD) is to expose patterns that are exceptions to the existing knowledge. Exceptions are considered interesting as they add extraordinary facts to the knowledge base and create an incentive in users to re-examine their decisions. Discovering exceptions along with the decision rules increases the quality of decision making in those rare circumstances where the rules are not applicable. This paper is an attempt to devise a framework to discover exceptions using an evolutionary approach. In this work, we have categorised exceptions as inter and intra class. Experimental results are presented to demonstrate the performance of the proposed algorithm.
