The IEEE International Conference on Data Mining has awarded our work in Discovering Precursors to Aviation Safety Incidents and Accidents as a Top 10 Data Mining Case Study in the world. This citation represents work that comprises both novel algorithms for anomaly detection and predictive modeling as well as applications in the aviation domain.
The conference ended last week and featured many international participants as well as numerous talks and posters from top researchers. The conference featured a keynote talk by Stephen Boyd from Stanford University, and numerous invited speakers such as Piero Bonnisone from GE, Vipin Kumar from the University of Minnesota, Dinkar Mylaraswamy from Honeywell, and Rama… Read More »
Here is an article that recently appeared in Flight International about some novel data mining and machine learning techniques that we are developing to potentially detect pilot fatigue. We are using anomaly detection techniques as well as predictive methods to look for objective indicators of fatigue. This is ongoing work between a number of groups… Read More »
