Many data scientists working with machine data are looking to anomaly detection as a means to discover interesting needles in the haystack. Although more sophisticated and robust methods exist, statistical methods are often a good simple approximation to the truth, and can be made very efficient.
This talk will cover the following:
Although this presentation will include some math, it will all be explained in intuitive terms, so no mathematical background is needed to understand the concepts presented. Sample data and a spreadsheet will be provided so you can repeat the examples.
Note that this speaker has no pony in the race and isn’t trying to sell you anything (VividCortex doesn’t do anomaly detection). This is purely educational.
