Compression analytics for data science
Research Area: Machine intelligence

Abstract: Most machine learning algorithms require extensive and carefully thought out feature engineering or parameterization that requires significant expertise in the underlying data.  This can be problematic especially when working with new or complex data. Compression analytics is a niche area in data science that provides surprisingly good performance across a wide range of problems with little or no feature engineering.  We’ll review the background to develop an intuitive understanding of why and how compression analytics should work.  We will then discuss a variety of applications spaces where we’ve applied it.  Finally we will discuss open research problems and where we might advance the state of the art.
