Anomaly detection is used widely to perform various tasks such as fraud detection in the financial industry, network breach for cyber-security, and enemy surveillance for the military. Data scientists apply various models to find anomalies, using a range of techniques from statistics to machine learning. However, the explosion of time series data generated by the Internet of Things (IoT) has made this task more challenging than ever. In the area of predictive maintenance, for example, data scientists struggle with hundreds of sensors that generate data every millisecond in order to find the unwanted noise that may lead to machine failure. Now, data scientists not only need to find the right algorithms to apply in these massive data sets, but they also need to find the right tools to handle big data.

Join us for a live webcast where you will learn how to:

  1. Overcome common challenges in finding anomalies in time series data
  2. Apply various statistical and machine learning algorithms in time series data
  3. Differentiate event-based anomaly detection and pattern-based anomaly detection
  4. Use tools that provide multi-genre analytics capability, such as Teradata Aster, to tackle anomaly detection
