Shapelet Transforms for Univariate and Multivariate Time Series Classification

Date and Time : 21st Feb, 13:00-14:00 Location : MED 1.02 Speaker : Aaron Bostrom Institution : School of Computing Sciences, UEA Organiser : Dr. Michal Mackiewicz   Abstract Time Series Classification(TSC) is a growing field of machine learning research. One particular algorithm from the TSC literature is the Shapelet Transform (ST). Shapelets are phase independent subsequence's that are extracted from time series to form discriminatory features. It has been...

From homology-relations to gene and species trees

Date : 8th Feb, 13:00-14:00 Location : SCI 3.05 Speaker : Prof. Marc Hellmuth's seminar Institution : University of Greifswald Organiser : Dr. Michal Mackiewicz   Abstract The distinction of homology-relations, e.g. orthologous and paralogous genes, is crucial and lies at the heart of many genomic studies. Intriguingly, there are methods to infer orthologs or to detect horizontal gene transfer (which yield xenologous genes) without the need to...
