This monograph is a technical survey of concepts and techniques for describing and analyzing large-scale time-series data streams. Some topics covered are algorithms for query by humming, gamma-ray burst detection, pairs trading, and density detection. Included are self-contained descriptions of wavelets, fast Fourier transforms, and sketches as they apply to time-series analysis. Detailed applications are built on a solid scientific basis.
Time-series data—data arriving in time order, or a data stream—can be found in fields such as physics, finance, music, networking, and medical instrumentation. Designing fast, scalable algorithms for analyzing single or multiple time series can lead to scientific discoveries, medical diagnoses, and perhaps profits. High Performance Discovery in Time Series presents rapid-discovery techniques for finding portions of time series with many events (i.e., gamma-ray scatterings) and finding closely related time series (i.e., highly correlated price and return histories, or musical melodies). A typical time-series technique may compute a "consensus" time series—from a collection of time series—to use regression analysis for predicting future time points. By contrast, this book aims at efficient discovery in time series, rather than prediction, and its novelty lies in its algorithmic contributions and its simple, practical algorithms and case studies. It presumes familiarity with only basic calculus and some linear algebra. Topics and Features: *Presents efficient algorithms for discovering unusual bursts of activity in large time-series databases * Describes the mathematics and algorithms for finding correlation relationships between thousands or millions of time series across fixed or moving windows *Demonstrates strong, relevant applications built on a solid scientific basis *Outlines how readers can adapt the techniques for their own needs and goals *Describes algorithms for query by humming, gamma-ray burst detection, pairs trading, and density detection *Offers self-contained descriptions of wavelets, fast Fourier transforms, and sketches as they apply to time-series analysis This new monograph provides a technical survey of concepts and techniques for describing and analyzing large-scale time-series data streams. It offers essential coverage of the topic for computer scientists, physicists, medical researchers, financial mathematicians, musicologists, and researchers and professionals who must analyze massive time series. In addition, it can serve as an ideal text/reference for graduate students in many data-rich disciplines.
International Work-Conference on the Interplay Between Natural and Artificial Computation, IWINAC 2017, Corunna, Spain, June 19-23, 2017, Proceedings
Author: José Manuel Ferrández Vicente
The two volumes LNCS 10337 and 10338 constitute the proceedings of the International Work-Conference on the Interplay Between Natural and Artificial Computation, IWINAC 2017, held in Corunna, Spain, in June 2017. The total of 102 full papers was carefully reviewed and selected from 194 submissions during two rounds of reviewing and improvement. The papers are organized in two volumes, one on natural and artificial computation for biomedicine and neuroscience, addressing topics such as theoretical neural computation; models; natural computing in bioinformatics; physiological computing in affective smart environments; emotions; as well as signal processing and machine learning applied to biomedical and neuroscience applications. The second volume deals with biomedical applications, based on natural and artificial computing and addresses topics such as biomedical applications; mobile brain computer interaction; human robot interaction; deep learning; machine learning applied to big data analysis; computational intelligence in data coding and transmission; and applications.
