3 Overall Motivation Financial time series streams are watched closely by millions of traders. What exactly do they look for and how can we help them do it faster? hich pairs of stocks had highly correlated returns over the last three hours Typical query:Which pairs of stocks had highly correlated returns over the last three hours? Do there exist bursts of gamma rays in windows of any size from 8 milliseconds to 4 hours Physicists study the time series emerging from their sensors. Typical query:Do there exist bursts of gamma rays in windows of any size from 8 milliseconds to 4 hours? Musicians produce time series. Typical query: Even though I cant hum well, please find this song. I want the CD.
4 Why Speed Is Important As processors speed up, algorithmic efficiency no longer matters … one might think. True if problem sizes stay same but they don t. As processors speed up, sensors improve -- satellites spewing out a terabyte a day, magnetic resonance imagers give higher resolution images, etc. Desire for real time response to queries. /86
5 Surprise, surprise More data, real-time response, increasing importance of correlation IMPLIES Efficient algorithms and data management more important than ever! /86
6 Section 2: Statstream: A Fast Sliding Window based Correction Detector
7 Scenario Stock prices streams The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) 50,000 securities (streams); 100,000 ticks (trade and quote) Pairs Trading, a.k.a. Correlation Trading Query:which pairs of stocks were correlated with a value of over 0.9 for the last three hours? XYZ and ABC have been correlated with a correlation of 0.95 for the last three hours. Now XYZ and ABC become less correlated as XYZ goes up and ABC goes down. They should converge back later. I will sell XYZ and buy ABC …
8 Motivation: Online Detection of High Correlation Correlated!
9 Problem Statement Synchronous time series window correlation Given N s streams, a start time t start,and a window size w, find, for each time window W of size w, all pairs of streams S 1 and S 2 such that S 1 during time window W is highly correlated with S 2 during the same time window. (Possible time windows are [t start t start +w - 1], [t start +1 t start +w], where t start is some start time.) Asynchronous correlation Allow shifts in time. That is, given Ns streams and a window size w, find all time windows W 1 and W 2 where |W 1 |= |W 2 |= w and all pairs of streams S 1 and S 2 such that S 1 during W 1 is highly correlated with S 2 during W 2.
10 Cooperative and Uncooperative Time Series Cooperative time series Exhibit a fundamental degree of regularity at least over the short term, Allow long time series to be compressed to a few coefficients with little loss of information using data reduction techniques such as Fourier Transforms and Wavelet Transforms. Example: stock price time series Uncooperative time series Regularities are absent – resembles noise. Example: stock return time series (difference in price/avg price)
11 Algorithmic Framework Basic Definitions: Timepoint: The smallest unit of time over which the system collects data, e.g., a second. Basic window: A consecutive subsequence of time points over which the system maintains a digest (i.e., a compressed representation) and returns resuls e.g., two minutes. Sliding window: A user-defined consecutive subsequence of basic windows over which the user wants statistics, e.g., an hour. The user might ask, which pairs of streams were correlated with a value of over 0.9 for the last hour? Then again 2 minutes later.
12 Definitions: Sliding window and Basic window … Stock 1 Stock 2 Stock 3 Stock n Sliding window Time axis Sliding window size=8 Basic window size=2 Basic window Time point
13 Algorithmic Strategy (cooperative case) Dimensionality Reduction (DFT, DWT, SVD) time series 1 time series 2 time series 3 … time series n … digest 1 digest 2 … digest n … Grid structure Correlated pairs
14 GEMINI framework (Faloutsos et al.) Transformation ideally has lower-bounding property
15 DFT based Scheme* Sliding window Basic window digests: sum DFT coefs Basic window Time point Basic window digests: sum DFT coefs *D. Shasha and Y. Zhu. High Performance Discovery in Time Series: Techniques and Case Studies. Springer, 2004.
16 Incremental Processing Compute the DFT a basic window at the time. Then add (with angular shifts) to get a DFT for the whole sliding window. Time is just DFT time for basic window + time proportional to number of DFT components we need. Using the first few DFT coefficients for the whole sliding window, represent the sliding window by a point in a grid structure. End up having to compare very few time windows, so a potentially quadratic comparison problem becomes linear in practice.
17 Grid Structure
18 Problem: Doesnt always work DFT approximates the price-like data type very well. However, it is poor for stock returns (todays price – yesterdays price)/yesterdays price. Return is more like white noise which contains all frequency components. DFT uses the first n (e.g. 10) coefficients in approximating data, which is insufficient in the case of white noise.
19 DFT on random walk (works well) and white noise (works badly)
20 Random Projection: Intuition You are walking in a sparse forest and you are lost. You have an outdated cell phone without a GPS. You want to know if you are close to your friend. You identify yourself as 100 meters from the pointy rock and 200 meters from the giant oak etc. If your friend is at similar distances from several of these landmarks, you might be close to one another. Random projections are analogous to these distances to landmarks.
21 How to compute a Random Projection* Random vector pool: A list of random vectors drawn from stable distribution (like the landmarks) Project the time series into the space spanned by these random vectors The Euclidean distance (correlation) between time series is approximated by the distance between their sketches with a probabilistic guarantee. Note: Sketches do not provide approximations of individual time series window but help make comparisons. W.B.Johnson and J.Lindenstrauss. Extensions of Lipshitz mapping into hilbert space. Contemp. Math.,26: ,1984
inner product random vector sketches raw time series Random Projection X current position Y current position Rocks, buildings … Y relative distances X relative distances
23 Sketch Guarantees Johnson-Lindenstrauss Lemma: For any and any integer n, let k be a positive integer such that Then for any set V of n points in, there is a map such that for all Further this map can be found in randomized polynomial time
26 Algorithm overview using random projections/sketches Partition each sketch vector s of size N into groups of some size g; The i th group of each sketch vector s is placed in the i th grid structure (of dimension g). If two sketch vectors s 1 and s 2 are within distance cd, where d is the target distance, in more than a fraction f of the groups, then the corresponding windows are candidate highly correlated windows and should be checked exactly.
27 Optimization in Parameter Space Next, how to choose the parameters g, c, f, N? Size of Sketch (N): 30, 36, 48, 60 Group Size (g): 1, 2, 3, 4 Distance Multiplier (c): 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.6, 0.7, 0.8, 0.9, 1, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 Fraction (f): 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.6, 0.7, 0.8, 0.9, 1
28 Optimization in Parameter Space Essentially, we will prepare several groups of good parameter candidates and choose the best one to be applied to the given data But, how to select the good candidates? Combinatorial Design (CD) Bootstrapping
29 Combinatorial Design The pair-wise combinations of all the parameters Informally: Each value of parameter X will be combined with each value of parameter Y in at least one experiment, for all X, Y Example: if there are four parameters having respectively 4, 4, 13, and 10 values, exhaustive search requires 2080 experiments vs. 130 for pair- wise combinatorial design. sketchparam.csv *
30 Exploring the Neighborhood around the Best Values Because combinatorial design is NOT exhaustive, we may not find the optimal combination of parameters at first. Solution: When good parameter values are found, their local neighbors will be searched further for better solutions
31 How Bootstrapping Is Used Goal: Test the robustness of a conclusion on a sample data set by creating new samples from the initial sample with replacement. Procedure: A sample set with 1,000,000 pairs of time series windows. Among them, choose with replacement 20,000 sample points Compute the recall and precision each time Repeat many times (e.g. 100 or more)
32 Testing for stability Bootstrap 100 times Compute mean and std of recalls and precisions What we want from good parameters Mean(recall)-std(recall)>Threshold(recall) Mean(precision)-std(precision)>Threshold(precision) If there are no such parameters, enlarge the replacement sample size

37 Section 3: Elastic Burst Detection
38 Elastic Burst Detection: Problem Statement Problem: Given a time series of positive numbers x 1, x 2,..., x n, and a threshold function f(w), w=1,2,...,n, find the subsequences of any size such that their sums are above the thresholds: all 0
39 Burst Detection: Challenge Single stream problem. What makes it hard is we are looking at multiple window sizes at the same time. Naïve approach is to do this one window size at a time.
40 Astrophysical Application Motivation: In astrophysics, the sky is constantly observed for high-energy particles. When a particular astrophysical event happens, a shower of high-energy particles arrives in addition to the background noise. An unusual event burst may signal an event interesting to physicists. Technical Overview: 1.The sky is partitioned into 1800*900 buckets Sliding window lengths are monitored from 0.1s to 39.81s 3.The original code implements the naive window-at-a-time algorithm. Cant do more windows
41 Bursts across different window sizes in Gamma Rays Challenge : to discover not only the time of the burst, but also the duration of the burst.
42 Shifted Binary Tree (SBT) Define threshold for node for size 2 k to be threshold for window of size 1+ 2 k-1
43 Burst Detection using SBT Any window of size w, 2 i-1 +2 w 2 i +1, is included in one of the windows at level i+1. For non-negative data stream and a monotonic aggregation function, if a node at level i+1 doesnt exceed the threshold for window size 2 i-1 +2, none of the windows of sizes between 2 i-1 +2 and 2 i +1 will contain a burst; otherwise need detailed search to test for real bursts Filter many windows, thus reducing the CPU time dramatically Shortcoming: fixed structure. Can do badly if bursts very unlikely or relatively likely.
44 Shifted Aggregation Tree Hierarchical tree structure-each node is an aggregate Different from the SBT in two ways: Parent-child structure: Define the topological relationship between a node and its children Shifting pattern: Define how many time points apart between two neighboring nodes at the same level
45 Aggregation Pyramid (AP) N-level isosceles triangular- shaped data structure built on a sliding window of length N N-level isosceles triangular- shaped data structure built on a sliding window of length N Level 0 has a one-to-one correspondence to the input time series Level 0 has a one-to-one correspondence to the input time series Level h stores the aggregates for h+1 consecutive elements, i.e, a sliding window of length h+1 Level h stores the aggregates for h+1 consecutive elements, i.e, a sliding window of length h+1 AP stores every aggregate for every window size starting at every time point AP stores every aggregate for every window size starting at every time point
46 Aggregation Pyramid Property 45 o diagonal: same starting time 135 o diagonal: same ending time Shadow of cell(t,h): a sliding window starting at time t and ending at t+h-1 Coverage of cell(t,h): all the cells in the sub-pyramid rooted at cell(t,h) Overlap of cell(t 1,h 1 ) and cell(t 2,h 2 ): a cell at the intersection of the 135 o diagonal touching cell(t 1,h 1 ) and the 45 o diagonal touching cell(t 2,h 2 )
47 Embed Shifted Binary Tree in Aggregation Pyramid

60 Fast and Accurate Time Series Matching with Time-Warping
61 Outline Problem Statement Related work review Case study: Query-by-Humming Future work
62 Motivation Many applications naturally generate time series data The most convenient way to investigate the data is by using existing examples as queries to find similar data In most cases, queries may have inaccurate timing
63 Goal of this work Goal Build fast and accurate similarity search algorithms for large scale time series system that allow complex time shifting in the query Two Major Challenges Query ambiguity The large size of the database
64 Related Work Review GEMINI framework Introduced by C. Faloutsos, M. Ranganathan and Y. Manolopoulos to avoid linear scan comparison Dynamic Time Warping (DTW) Introduced by D. Berndt and J. Clifford to allow time- shifting in the time series comparison Envelope and Envelope Transforms Introduced by E. Keogh to index DTW distance Generalized into GEMINI framework by our group.
65 Dynamic Time Warping DTW Distance between two time series x,y is Equal to optimal path finding Each path (1,1) (m,n) is an alignment (i,j) represents aligning x(i) with y(j) cost(i,j) equals |x(i)-y(j)| Optimal path has minimum total cost
66 Problem of DTW Distance DTW Distance does not obey triangle-inequality. which most standard indexing methods require.
67 Envelope and Envelope Transform Envelope Filter Transformed Envelope Filter Filter out bad candidates with lower computing cost and guarantee no false negative Feature Space
68 Example of Envelope Transform Piecewise Aggregate Approximation (PAA)
69 Case Study: Query by Humming Application Specific Challenges Related Work Proposed Framework Experiment Humming Music Database System Similar music segments query return
70 Challenges People may hum out of tune Different base key Inaccurate relative pitch Instable pitch Different tempo Varying tempo Hard to segment notes in the humming

72 Problems with Related Work Difficult to do performance comparison No Standard for Evaluation Data set and test set are different Definition of accuracy is not reliable General conclusions nevertheless possible: Warped distance measure is more robust Need to scale up warped distance matching
73 Experiment on Scaling Up Test set 41 hummed tunes from Beatles songs Collected from both amateurs and professionals Recognizable by more than three persons Two data sets A. 53 Beatles songs (included by B) B songs including 123 Beatles songs, 908 American rock-and- pop songs and one Chinese game music Top K Hit-rate= # recognized in TopK list # recognized by human * Both system are optimized using another test set which includes 17 hummings
74 Framework Proposal note/duration sequence segment notes Query criteria Database Humming with ta keywords Top N match Nearest-N search on DTW distance with transformed envelope filter melody (note) Top N match Alignment verifier rhythm (duration) & melody (note) Database statistics based features Boosted feature filter boosting Database Keyword filter
75 Important Heuristic: ta Based Humming* Solve the problem of note segmentation in most cases Compare humming with la and ta * Idea from N. Kosugi et al A pratical query-by-humming system for a large music database ACM Multimedia 2000
76 Benefits of ta Style Humming Decrease the size of time series by orders of magnitude. Thus reduce the computation of DTW distance
77 Important Heuristic: Statistics-Based Filters * Low dimensional statistics feature Lower computation cost comparing to DTW distance Quickly filter out true negatives Example Filter out candidates whose note length is much larger/smaller than the querys note length More Standard Deviation of note values Zero crossing rate of note values Number of local minimum/maximum of note values Histogram of note values * Intuition from Erling Wold et al Content-based classification, search and retrieval of audio IEEE Multimedia 1996
78 Important Heuristic: Boosting Characteristics of statistics-based filters Quick but does not guarantee no false negative Becomes weak classifier for bad parameters setting Ideal candidates for boosting Boosting * An algorithm for constructing a strong classifier using only a training set and a set of weak classification algorithm A particular linear combination of these weak classifiers is used as the final classifier which has a much smaller probability of misclassification * Cynthia Rudin et al On the Dynamics of Boosting In Advances in Neural Information Processing Systems 2004
79 Important Heuristic: Alignment Verification Nearest-N search only used melody information, which does not guarantee the rhythm will match Will A. Arentz et al. suggests combining rhythm and melody information in similarity comparison Results are generally better than using only melody information Not appropriate when the sum of several notes duration in the query may be related to duration of one note in the candidate Our method: 1. Use melody information for DTW distance computing 2. Reject candidates that have bad local note alignment 3. Merge durations appropriately based on the note alignment 4. Reject candidates which have bad duration alignment

83 Themes and Approaches Our approach: take simple problems and make them fast. Correlation and related primitives (e.g. matching pursuit) are simple, but we want to do them for many thousands of time series incrementally and in near linear time. Burst detection over many window sizes in near linear time. Query by humming: large scale and accurate. Coming to a store near you?
