Accountable Behavioural Change Detection (VEDAR) using Machine Learning

Submitted Apr 16, 2019

With exponential increase in the availability of telemetry / streaming / real-time data, understanding contextual behavior changes is a vital functionality in order to deliver unrivalled customer experience and build high performance and high availability systems. Real-time behavior change detection finds a use case in number of domains such as social networks, network traffic monitoring, ad exchange metrics etc. In streaming data, behavior change is an implausible observation that does not fit in with the distribution of rest of the data. A timely and precise revelation of such behavior changes can give us substantial information about the system in critical situations which can be a driving factor for vital decisions. Detecting behavior changes in streaming fashion is a difficult task as the system needs to process high speed real-time data and continuously learn from data along with detecting anomalies in a single pass of data. In this talk, we introduce a novel algorithm called Accountable Behavior Change Detection (VEDAR) which can detect and elucidate the behavior changes in real-time and operates in a fashion similar to human perception. We have bench marked our algorithm on open source anomaly detection datasets. We have bench marked our algorithm by comparing its performance on open source anomaly datasets against industry standard algorithms like Numenta HTM and Twitter AdVec (SH-ESD). Our algorithm outperforms above mentioned algorithms for behaviour change detection, efficacy


This talk mainly covers VEDAR algorithem in detail and benchmarks comparison with other streamingly anomoly detection. More details in the
