Rodney Martin Gives an Invited Talk Following the Opening Event of Green Tech Center in Vejle, Denmark

Rodney Martin delivered a talk on “The Prediction of Adverse Events in Time Series Data Using the Adverse Condition and Critical Event Prediction Toolbox (ACCEPT)” following the opening event and inaugural workshop for the Green Tech Center in Vejle, Denmark on June 24, 2014.

ACCEPT operates from within the Matlab programming environment and provides a special-purpose functionality that can be used specifically for the prediction or forecasting adverse events in time series data. It also provides a single, unifying framework in which to compare a variety of combinations of algorithmic approaches addressing this problem. The architectural framework offers flexibility for expansion to accommodate the newest popular regression and detection methods for this particular problem, enabling the development of an infrastructure that can act as a “proving ground” platform for comparing new techniques to the state of the art. As such, its intention is to act as a catalyst in advancing the state of the art in technologies related to this problem. There are a variety of other toolboxes that offer similar capabilities and features; however, they are either more suitable as general-purpose machine-learning toolboxes, or are only available commercially or through agreements. ACCEPT fills this niche by offering visibility into a specific approach for addressing the adverse-event prediction problem.

BACKGROUND: Participation in the opening event and inaugural workshop for the Green Tech Center in Vejle, Denmark extended to providing talks and holding discussions with various members of the research community aligned with Green Tech Center's research initiatives on NASA Ames Sustainability Base and other research activities, such as a Center Innovation Fund effort to assess Biologically-Inspired Machine Intelligence for NASA's missions, systems, and facilities from June 24-26, 2014. These local meetings focused on further identifying areas for mutual collaboration and exchange.

TEAM: Andres Angeles, Sreejita Das, Ken Goodman, Martin Griss, Rosalind Grymes, Kelechi Ikegwu, Myat Kyaw, Bing Liu, Scott Poll, Steven Rosenberg, and Sam Shilmover

NASA PROGRAM FUNDING: Travel sponsored by the Green Technology Center, Denmark, Centre for Smart Energy Solutions, University of Southern Denmark
