This UDRC theme meeting will address the challenges of anomaly detection.
An important capability of sensor based systems for monitoring, controlling, supporting human decision making, or even fully automatic operation is to detect anomalous situations, flagging an attention warranting event posing a threat or placing the operational system beyond the limits of its competence.
With the ever increasing level of intelligence and functional sophistication of sensor based systems, anomaly detection has also grown in complexity, taking into account contextual information and multimodal input to detect anomalous events. However, by and large, the conceptual basis of existing anomaly detection systems to date draws on the conventional formulation of anomaly detection as an outlier detection problem.
This meeting will explore recent advances in anomaly detection, which employ more complex mechanisms for anomaly detection. The meeting will also discuss anomaly detection applications as well as considering crucial open challenges in the field.
