Shawn Wolfe: "The Inductive and Meta Monitoring Systems (IMS+MMS): Automated Monitoring Techniques for Complex and Autonomous Missions Operations Systems."

Abstract:Monitoring the operations of critical systems is notoriously difficult yet essential for successful human space exploration. We describe the Inductive Monitoring System (IMS) and the Meta Monitoring System (MMS), two interrelated software packages that can be used to monitor such systems. IMS and MMS are “knowledge-free” algorithms in that they do not require any prior knowledge of nominal operations. Instead, both systems learn a model of nominal operations by observing normal operations. We will discuss how IMS and MMS work, the types of data needed to induce such models, and give several examples of past deployments.
