Advanced satellite tracking technologies have collected huge amounts of wild bird migration data. Biologists use these data to understand dynamic migration patterns, study correlations between habitats, and predict global spreading trends of avian influenza. The research discussed here transforms the biological problem into a machine learning problem by converting wild bird migratory paths into graphs. H5N1 outbreak prediction is achieved by discovering weighted closed cliques from the graphs using the mining algorithm High-wEight cLosed cliquE miNing (HELEN). The learning algorithm HELEN-p then predicts potential H5N1 outbreaks at habitats. This prediction method is more accurate than traditional methods used on a migration dataset obtained through a real satellite bird-tracking system. Empirical analysis shows that H5N1 spreads in a manner of high-weight closed cliques and frequent cliques.
