Most state-of-the-art (SOTA) time series classification methods are limited by high computational complexity. This makes them slow to train on smaller datasets and effectively unusable on large datasets.
Recently, ROCKET (RandOM Convolutional KErnel Transform) has achieved SOTA of accuracy in just a fraction of the time as other SOTA time series classifiers. ROCKET transforms time series into features using random convolutional kernels and passes the features to a linear classifier.
MiniRocket is even faster!
MiniRocket (MINImally RandOm Convolutional KErnel Transform) is a (nearly) deterministic reformulation of Rocket that is 75 times faster on larger datasets and boasts roughly equivalent accuracy.
Conventional machine learning algorithms, such as linear regression and xgboost, operate in “batch” mode. That is, they fit a model using a full dataset in one go. Updating that model with new data requires fitting a brand new model from scratch using both the new data and the old data.
In many applications, this can be difficult or impossible! It requires all data to fit into memory, which isn’t always possible. The model itself can be slow to re-train. Retrieving older data for the model can be a big challenge, particularly in applications where data is continuously generated. …
Cross validation is a useful procedure to help select optimal hyperparameters for a machine learning model. It is especially useful for smaller datasets, where there is not enough data to create representative train, validation, and test sets. Simply stated, cross validation splits a single training dataset into multiple subsets of train and test datasets.
The simplest form is k-fold cross validation, which splits the training set into k smaller sets, or folds. For each split, a model is trained using k-1 folds of the training data. The model is then validated against the remaining fold. Then for each split, the…
There are many paths that lead to Medium success and I believe I have found one of them. I consistently average $150-$250 per month, excluding the $500 Medium bonuses. Once I started tagging my articles as #artificialintelligence, I earned the Top Writer in Artificial Intelligence tag. I write 1 or 2 articles per month, sometimes less frequently, depending on how much time I have.

So you want to write a widely read article about Data Science / Machine Learning / Artificial Intelligence?
In May 2021, I was recognized as a top writer in AI and was among the top 1000 writers in the Medium Partner Program. My older articles still continue to receive views and often appear in Google searches. (Scroll to the bottom for a screenshot of my stats).
Read along to learn some of the keys to my success.
I first learned about Medium as a data scientist searching for specific topics in Data Science. …
Outlier detection is a machine learning task that aims to identify rare items, events, or observations that deviate from the “norm” or general distribution of the given data.
An anomaly is something that arouses suspicion that it was generated by different data generating mechanism
In the outlier detection task, the goal is train an unsupervised model to find anomalies subject to two constraints:
In many applications, there is a third constraint: the “ground truth” of what are true…
PyOD is a Python library with a comprehensive set of scalable, state-of-the-art (SOTA) algorithms for detecting outlying data points in multivariate data. This task is commonly referred to as Outlier Detection or Anomaly Detection.
The outlier detection task aims to identify rare items, events, or observations that deviate from the “norm” or general distribution of the given data.
My favorite definition: An anomaly is something that arouses suspicion that it was generated by different data generating mechanism
Common applications of outlier detection include fraud detection, data error detection, intrusion detection in network security, and fault detection in mechanics.
Outliers, or anomalies are data points that deviate from the norm of a dataset. They arouse suspicion that they were generated by a different mechanism.
Anomaly detection is (usually) an unsupervised learning task where the objective is to identify suspicious observations in data. The task is constrained by the cost of incorrectly flagging normal points as anomalous and failing to flag actual anomalous points.
Applications of anomaly detection include network intrusion detection, data quality monitoring, and price arbitrage in financial markets.
Copula-Based Outlier Detection — COPOD — is a new algorithm for anomaly detection. …
