Data Mining and Prediction

Objectives of Data Mining and Prediction
Large amounts of sensor data have to be “interpreted” to acquire knowledge about tasks that occur in the environment Patterns in the data can be used to predict future events Knowledge of tasks facilitates the automation of task components to improve the inhabitants’ experience

Data Mining and Prediction
Data Mining attempts to extract patterns from the available data Associative patterns What data attributes occur together ? Classification What indicates a given category ? Temporal patterns What sequences of events occur frequently ?

Example Patterns Associative pattern Classification
When Bob is in the living room he likes to watch TV and eat popcorn with the light turned off. Classification Action movie fans like to watch Terminator, drink beer, and have pizza. Sequential patterns After coming out of the bedroom in the morning, Bob turns off the bedroom lights, then goes to the kitchen where he makes coffee, and then leaves the house.

Data Mining and Prediction
Prediction attempts to form patterns that permit it to predict the next event(s) given the available input data. Deterministic predictions If Bob leaves the bedroom before 7:00 am on a workday, then he will make coffee in the kitchen. Probabilistic sequence models If Bob turns on the TV in the evening then he will 80% of the time go to the kitchen to make popcorn.

Objective of Prediction in Intelligent Environments
Anticipate inhabitant actions Detect unusual occurrences (anomalies) Predict the right course of actions Provide information for decision making Automate repetitive tasks e.g.: prepare coffee in the morning, turn on lights Eliminate unnecessary steps, improve sequences e.g.: determine if will likely rain based on weather forecast and external sensors to decide if to water the lawn.

What to Predict Behavior of the Inhabitants
Location Tasks / goals Actions Behavior of the Environment Device behavior (e.g. heating, AC) Interactions Visit course website

Example: Location Prediction
Where will Bob go next? Locationt+1 = f(x) Input data x: Locationt, Locationt-1, … Time, date, day of the week Sensor data

Example: Location Prediction
Time Date Day Locationt Locationt+1 6:30 02/25 Monday Bedroom Bathroom 7:00 Kitchen 7:30 Garage 17:30 18:00 18:10 Living room 22:00 22:10 02/26 Tuesday

Example: Location Prediction
Learned pattern If Day = Monday…Friday & Time > 0600 & Time < 0700 & Locationt = Bedroom Then Locationt+1 = Bathroom

Prediction Techniques
Classification-Based Approaches Nearest Neighbor Neural Networks Bayesian Classifiers Decision Trees Sequential Behavior Modeling Hidden Markov Models Temporal Belief Networks

Classification-Based Prediction
Problem Input: State of the environment Attributes of the current state inhabitant location, device status, etc. Attributes of previous states Output: Concept description Concept indicates next event Prediction has to be applicable to future examples

Instance-Based Prediction: Nearest Neighbor
Use previous instances as a model for future instances Prediction for the current instance is chosen as the classification of the most similar previously observed instance. Instances with correct classifications (predictions) (xi,f(xi)) are stored Given a new instance xq, the prediction is derived as the one of the most similar instance xk: f(xq) = f(xk)

Example: Location Prediction
Time Date Day Locationt Locationt+1 6:30 02/25 Monday Bedroom Bathroom 7:00 Kitchen 7:30 Garage 17:30 18:00 18:10 Living room 22:00 22:10 02/26 Tuesday

Nearest Neighbor Example: Inhabitant Location
Training Instances (with concept): ((Bedroom, 6:30), Bathroom), ((Bathroom, 7:00), Kitchen), ((Kitchen, 7:30), Garage), ((Garage, 17:30), Kitchen), … Similarity Metric: d((location1, time1), (location2, time2)) = 1000*(location1  location2) + | time1 – time2 | Query Instance: xq = (Bedroom, 6:20) Nearest Neighbor: xk = (Bedroom, 6:30) d(xk, xq) = 10 Prediction f(xk): Bathroom

Nearest Neighbor Training instances and similarity metric form regions where a concept (prediction) applies: Uncertain information and incorrect training instances lead to incorrect classifications

k-Nearest Neighbor Instead of using the most similar instance, use the average of the k most similar instances Given query xq, estimate concept (prediction) using majority of k nearest neighbors Or, estimate concept by establishing the concept with the highest sum of inverse distances:

k-Nearest Neighbor Example
TV viewing preferences Distance Function? What are the important attributes ? How can they be compared ? Time Date Day Channel Genre Title 19:30 02/25 Thursday 27 Reality Cops 21:00 33 News 19:00 02/26 Friday 11 12:00 02/27 Saturday 21 Action Terminator I 20:00 8 Time Date Day Channel Genre Title 13:30 03/20 Sunday 13 Reality Antiques Roadshow 22:00 4 News 20:00 03/21 Monday 8 60 Minutes 03/22 Tuesday Documentary Nova

k-Nearest Neighbor Example
Distance function example: Most important matching attribute: Show name Second most important attribute: Time Third most important attribute: Genre Fourth most important attribute: Channel Time Date Day Channel Genre Title 16:30 04/20 Wednesday 13 Documentary WW II Planes 21:00 04/21 Thursday 33 News 20:00 04/22 Friday 8 60 Minutes Does he/she like to watch Nova ?

Fast training (just store instances) Complex target functions No loss of information Problems Slow at query time (have to evaluate all instances) Sensitive to correct choice of similarity metric Easily fooled by irrelevant attributes

Decision Trees Use training instances to build a sequence of evaluations that permits to determine the correct category (prediction) If Bob is in the Bedroom then if the time is between 6:00 and 7:00 then Bob will go to the Bathroom else Sequence of evaluations are represented as a tree where leaves are labeled with the category

Decision Tree Induction
Algorithm (main loop) A = best attribute for next node Assign A as attribute for node For each value of A, create descendant node Sort training examples to descendants If training examples perfectly classified, then Stop, else iterate over descendants

Decision Tree Induction
Best attribute based on information-theoretic concept of entropy Choose the attribute that reduces the entropy (~uncertainty) most A1 A2 v1 v2 v1 v2 ? ? B K Bathroom (25) Kitchen (25) Bathroom (25) Kitchen (25) Bathroom (50) Kitchen (0) Bathroom (0) Kitchen (50)

Decision Tree Example: Inhabitant Location
Day Sun M…F Sat Time > 6:00 yes no Time < 7:00 yes no Locationt Locationt Bedroom Bedroom Bathroom Living Room

Example: Location Prediction
Time Date Day Locationt Locationt+1 6:30 02/25 Monday Bedroom Bathroom 7:00 Kitchen 7:30 Garage 17:30 18:00 18:10 Living room 22:00 22:10 02/26 Tuesday

Decision Trees Advantages Problems Understandable rules
Fast learning and prediction Lower memory requirements Problems Replication problem (each category requires multiple branches) Limited rule representation (attributes are assumed to be locally independent) Numeric attributes can lead to large branching factors

Artificial Neural Networks
Use a numeric function to calculate the correct category. The function is learned from the repeated presentation of the set of training instances where each attribute value is translated into a number. Neural networks are motivated by the functioning of neurons in the brain. Functions are computed in a distributed fashion by a large number of simple computational units

Neural Networks

Computer vs. Human Brain
Computational units 1 CPU, 108 gates 1011 neurons Storage units 1010 bits RAM, 1012 bits disk 1011 neurons, 1014 synapses Cycle time 10-9 sec 10-3 sec Bandwidth 109 bits/sec 1014 bits/sec Neuron updates / sec 106 1014

Artificial Neurons Artificial neurons are a much simplified computational model of neurons Output: A function is learned by adjusting the weights wj

Artificial Neuron Activation functions

Perceptrons Perceptrons use a single unit with a threshold function to distinguish two categories

Perceptron Learning Weights are updated based on the treaining instances (x(i), f(x(i))) presented. Adjusts the weights in order to move the output closer to the desired target concept. Learning rate  determines how fast to adjust the weights (too slow will require many training steps, too fast will prevent learning).

Limitation of Perceptrons
Learns only linearly-separable functions E.g. XOR can not be learned

Feed forward Networks with Sigmoid Units
Networks of units with sigmoid activation functions can learn arbitrary functions

Feed forward Networks with Sigmoid Units
General Networks permit arbitrary state-based categories (predictions) to be learned

Learning in Multi-Layer Networks: Error Back-Propagation
As in Perceptrons, differences between the output of the network and the target concept are propagated back to the input weights. Output errors for hidden units are computed based on the propagated errors for the inputs of the output units. Weight updates correspond to gradient descent on the output error function in weight space.

Neural Network Examples
Prediction Predict steering commands in cars Modeling of device behavior Face and object recognition Pose estimation Decision and Control Heating and AC control Light control Automated vehicles

Neural Network Example: Prediction of Lighting
University of Colorado Adaptive Home [DLRM94] Neural network learns to predict the light level after a set of lights are changed Input: The current light device levels (7 inputs) The current light sensor levels (4 inputs) The new light device levels (7 inputs) Output: The new light sensor levels (4 outputs) [DLRM94] Dodier, R. H., Lukianow, D., Ries, J., & Mozer, M. C. (1994). A comparison of neural net and conventional techniques for lighting control. Applied Mathematics and Computer Science, 4,

General purpose learner (can learn arbitrary categories) Fast prediction Problems All inputs have to be translated into numeric inputs Slow training Learning might result in a local optimum

Bayes Classifier Use Bayesian probabilities to determine the most likely next event for the given instance given all the training data. Conditional probabilities are determined from the training data.

Naive Bayes Classifier
Bayes classifier required estimating P(x|f) for all x and f by counting occurrences in the training data. Generally too complex for large systems Naive Bayes classifier assumes that attributes are statistically independent

Yields optimal prediction (given the assumptions) Can handle discrete or numeric attribute values Naive Bayes classifier easy to compute Problems Optimal Bayes classifier computationally intractable Naive Bayes assumption usually violated

Bayesian Networks Bayesian networks explicitly represent the dependence and independence of various attributes. Attributes are modeled as nodes in a network and links represent conditional probabilities. Network forms a causal model of the attributes Prediction can be included as an additional node. Probabilities in Bayesian networks can be calculated efficiently using analytical or statistical inference techniques.

Bayesian Networks Example: Location Prediction
All state attributes are represented as nodes. Nodes can include attributes that are not observable. Prediction Room Get ready Time Day P(Bathroom | R, Gr) Gr R Bedroom Kitchen True 0.8 0.1 False 0.2 0.0

Bayesian Networks Advantages Problems Efficient inference mechanism
Readable structure For many problems relatively easy to design by hand Mechanisms for learning network structure exist Problems Building network automatically is complex Does not handle sequence information

Sequential Behavior Prediction
Problem Input: A sequence of states or events States can be represented by their attributes inhabitant location, device status, etc. Events can be raw observations Sensor readings, inhabitant input, etc. Output: Predicted next event Model of behavior has to be built based on past instances and be usable for future predictions.

Sequence Prediction Techniques
String matching algorithms Deterministic best match Probabilistic matching Markov Models Markov Chains Hidden Markov Models Dynamic Belief Networks

String-Based Prediction
Use the string of previous events or states to find a part that matches the current history. Prediction is either the event that followed the best (longest) matching string or the most likely event to follow strings partially matching the history. Issues: How to determine quality of match ? How can such a predictor be represented efficiently if the previous event string is long ?

Example System: IPAM [DH98]
Predict UNIX commands issued by a user Calculate p(xt,xt-1) based on frequency Update current p(Predicted, xt-1) by  Update current p(Observed, xt-1) by 1-  Weight more recent events more heavily Data 77 users, 2-6 months, >168,000 commands Accuracy less than 40% for one guess, but better than Naïve Bayes Classifier [DH98] B. D. Davison and H. Hirsh. Probabilistic Online Action Prediction. Intelligent Environments: Papers from the AAAI 1998 Spring Symposium, Technical Report SS-98-02, pp : AAAI Press.

Example System: ONISI [GP00]
Look for historical state/action sequences that match immediate history and determine the quality of the predictions from these sequences In state s at time t, compute lt(s,a) Average length of the k longest sequences ending in a In state s, compute f(s,a) Frequency of action a executed from state s Rank predictions using [GP00] Peter Gorniak and David Poole, Predicting Future User Actions by Observing Unmodified Applications, Seventeenth National Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AAAI-2000), August 2000.

Onisi Example [GP00] k=3, for action a3 there are only two matches of length 1 and 2, so lt(s3,a3) = (0+1+2)/3 = 1 If =0.9, the sum of averaged lengths for all actions is 5, a3 has occurred 50 times in s3, and s3 is visited 100 times, then Rt(s3,a3) = 0.9*1/ *50/100 = = 0.23

Example Sequence Predictors
Advantages Permits predictions based on sequence of events Simple learning mechanism Problems Relatively ad hoc weighting of sequence matches Limited prediction capabilities Large overhead for long past state/action sequences

Markov Chain Prediction
Use the string of previous events or states to create a model of the event generating process. Models are probabilistic and can be constructed from the observed behavior of the system Prediction is the most event that is most likely to be generated by the model. Issues: What form should the model take ? String-based models State-based models

Example System: Active LeZi [GC03]
Assumptions: Event sequences are fairly repeatable Generated by deterministic source Construct model as parse tree of possible event sequences Nodes are events with associated frequencies Model constructed using LZ78 text compression algorithm [DH98] K. Gopalratnam and D. J. Cook, Active LeZi: An Incremental Parsing Algorithm for Device Usage Prediction in the Smart Home, In Proceedings of the Florida Artificial Intelligence Research Symposium, 2003.

Text Compression: LZ78 Parses string x1 , x2 , …. xi into c(i)
substrings w1 , w2 , …. wc(i) that form the set of phrases used for compression Each prefix of a phrase wj is also a phrase wi in the set used for compression Example: input aaababbbbbaabccddcbaaaa yields phrases a,aa,b,ab,bb,bba,abc,c,d,dc,ba,aaa

Active LeZi Represent compression phrases as a parse tree with frequency statistics E.g.: aaababbbbbaabccddcbaaaa

Prediction in Active LeZi
Calculate the probability for each possible event To calculate the probability, transitions across phrase boundaries have to be considered Slide window across the input sequence Length k equal to longest phrase seen so far Gather statistics on all possible contexts Order k-1 Markov model Output event with greatest probability across all contexts as prediction

Example: Probability of a
Order 2 2/5 times that aa appears Order 1 5/10 times that a appears Order 0 10/23 total symbols Blended probability is Probability of escaping to lower order = frequency of null endings

Active LeZi Example: Prediction on Simulated MavHome Data
Data simulates a single inhabitant interacting with the devices in the home Repetitive behavior patterns are embedded in the data (e.g. morning routine ) Time is ignored in the prediction Only device interactions are recorded

Permits predictions based on sequence of events Does not require the construction of states Permits probabilistic predictions Problems Tree can become very large (long prediction times) Nonoptimal predictions if the tree is not sufficiently deep

Markov Chain Models Markov chain models represent the event generating process probabilistically. Markov models can be described by a tuple <S, T> representing states and transition probabilities. Markov assumption: The current state contains all information about the past that is necessary to predict the probability of the next state. P(xt+1|xt, xt-1, …, x0) = P(xt+1 | xt) Transitions correspond to events that occurred in the environment (inhabitant actions, etc) Prediction of next state (and event)

Markov Chain Example Example states:
S = {(Room, Time, Day, Previous Room)} Transition probabilities can be calculated from training data by counting occurrences x1 x4 x6 x2 x5 x3

Markov Models Advantages Problems Permits probabilistic predictions
Transition probabilities are easy to learn Representation is easy to interpret Problems State space has to have Markov property State space selection is not automatic States might have to include previous information State attributes might not be observable

Partially Observable MMs
Partially Observable Markov Models extend Markov models by permitting states to be only partially observable. Systems can be represented by a tuple <S, T, O, V> where <S, T> is a Markov model and O, V are mapping observations about the state to probabilities of a given state O = {oi} is the set of observations V: V(x, o) = P(o | x) To determine a prediction the probability of being in any given state is computed

Partially Observable MMs
Prediction is the most likely next state given the information about the current state (i.e. the current belief state): Belief state B is a probability distribution over the state space: B = ((x1, P(x1)), …, (xn, P(xn)) Prediction of the next state:

Hidden Markov Models Hidden Markov Models (HMM) provide mechanisms to learn the Markov Model <S, T> underlying a POMM from the sequence of observations. Baum-Welch algorithm learns transition and observation probabilities as well as the state space (only the number of states has to be given) Model learned is the one that is most likely to explain the observed training sequences

Hidden Markov Model Example
Tossing a balanced coin starting with a biased coin that always starts heads:

Partially Observable MMs
Advantages Permits optimal predictions HMM provide algorithms to learn the model In HMM, Markovian state space description has not to be known Problems State space can be enormous Learning of HMM is generally very complex Computation of belief state is computationally expensive

Dynamic Bayesian Networks
Dynamic Bayesian Networks use a Bayesian network to represent the belief state. State is constructed from a set of attributes (nodes) Transitions over time are modeled as links between a model at time t and a model at time t+1 Get ready Time Day Room Time t Time t+1

Dynamic Bayesian Networks
Advantages Handles partial observability More compact model Belief state is inherent in the network Simple prediction of next belief state Problems State attributes have to be predetermined Learning of probabilities is very complex

Conclusions Prediction is important in intelligent environments
Captures repetitive patterns (activities) Helps automating activities (But: only tells what will happen next; not what the system should do next) Different prediction algorithms have different strength and weaknesses: Select a prediction approach that is suitable for the particular problem. There is no “best” prediction approach Optimal prediction is a very hard problem and is not yet solved.
