Computing various quantities such as medians or the number of unique elements requires a lot of time, a lot of memory, or both. It is, however, possible to get really close to the right answer with much less time and much less memory. Such algorithms can be simpler than you might expect. Ted will describe these and show how they can be applied to applications like anomaly detection. Read more.
