Sorry, this event has now ended.

The University of Manchester Data Science Institute invite you to the first in a new series of seminars on Advanced Data Analytics. Dr Rebecca Killick from Lancaster University will present 'A whirlwind tour of recent advances in changepoints'.

It is increasingly recognized that modern time series are not stationary.  A simple departure from a stationarity assumption is a piecewise stationarity.  The identification of the join points or "changepoints" is an increasingly active area of research.  This talk will cover the general challenges specific to assuming a changepoint structure for your data along with some recent advances to try to alleviate some of these.  This talk will focus on practical examples and issues giving references for those who want to delve more into the theoretical considerations. The application areas for changepoints are vast, this talk will touch on applications in ecology, oceanography, engineering, health, computing and economics.

Coffee and discussion will take place at 3pm
