Space-Time Insight, the leading provider of next-generation situational intelligence solutions, will share insights into anomaly detection and predictive modeling at the International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS) 2015. ICCS is an annual conference that brings together researchers and scientists from the mathematics and computer science sectors to discuss problems and solutions in the industry, identify new issues, and shape future directions for research. The conference will take place at the Reykjavik University in Reykjavik, Iceland from June 1-3, 2015.

Space-Time Insight’s chief technology officer, Paul Hofmann, will deliver a lecture during a workshop titled “Applications of Matrix Computational Methods in the Analysis of Modern Data.” This workshop will discuss the concept of modern data, and the application of matrix computational science techniques to adequately interpret data in a meaningful way. Hofmann’s lecture, “Anomaly Detection and Predictive Maintenance through Large Sparse Similarity Matrices and Causal Modeling,” will discuss best practices for detecting anomalies within complicated data sets and how this creates an opportunity for predictive maintenance.

  • What: AMCMD Workshop lecture, “Anomaly Detection and Predictive Maintenance through Large Sparse Similarity Matrices and Causal Modeling”
  • Who: Paul Hofmann, Space-Time Insight
  • When: June 3, 2015, 14:10 local time
  • Where: Reykjavik University, Reykjavik, Iceland

“Detecting anomalies is key to filtering through vast amounts of Big Data to find the specific items or events that you need to focus on and make decisions about,” said Hofmann. “But detecting anomalies is difficult when you don’t know what isn’t anomalous; in other words, what is normal. Methods described during this lecture will allow people and organizations to quickly find anomalies without first knowing what is normal.”
