CSE Seminar Lecture - Yan Liu, PhD: "Conquering the Complexity of Time: Mining from Big Time Series Data"

Primary tabs


Many emerging applications of big data involve time series data. In this talk, Yan Liu will discuss a collection of machine learning and data mining approaches to effectively analyze and model large-scale time series and spatio-temporal data. Experiment results will be shown to demonstrate the effectiveness of models in healthcare and climate applications.
