Anomaly Detection in Spark
Detection of outliers and anomalies has numerous applications in network security, predictive maintenance, fraud, etc. Unlike many analytics applications, anomaly detection typically requires utilization of all data without sampling, making it an ideal match for big data tools like Spark. The most commonly cited approach on big data is the use of clustering; however, clustering and other unsupervised approaches have significant drawbacks.
In this interactive session, we’ll discuss the tradeoff between supervised and unsupervised approaches, then show an approach for using supervised models in situations where labeled data does not exist. Throughout, we’ll demonstrate insights over Spark using iPython and an example dataset.
Date: April 17-20
