Multidimensional Time-series Incremental Learning algorithm (MTIL)

We are developing MTIL algorithm (Multidimensional Time-series Incremental Learning algorithm) to discovery of frequent time-series patterns from a large amount of multidimensional sensor data such as multi-modal data and learn it incrementally (Fig.1). The algorithm is composed based on an on-line segmentation algorithm (MD-SWAB) [1] and an incremental clustering algorithm (HB-SOINN) [2]. It has three advantages. First advantage is to be able to detect frequent time-series patterns fast because it don’t need to keep whole time-series data. Second advantage is to be able to report the number of categories of time-series patterns. Third advantage is to acquire new category patterns incrementally. Human-Human and Human-Robot interaction data and categories of it increase dynamically and incrementally because interaction protocol changes in time. The algorithm helps to analyze the interaction data.
