Jointly Predicting Job Performance, Personality, Cognitive Ability, Affect, and Well-Being

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

Assessment of job performance, personalized health and psychometric measures are domains where data-driven and ubiquitous computing exhibits the potential of a profound impact in the future. Existing techniques use data extracted from questionnaires, sensors (wearable, computer, etc.), or other traits, to assess well-being and cognitive attributes of individuals. However, these techniques can neither predict individual's well-being and psychological traits in a global manner nor consider the challenges associated to processing the data available, that is incomplete and noisy. In this paper, we create a benchmark for predictive analysis of individuals from a perspective that integrates: physical and physiological behavior, psychological states and traits, and job performance. We design data mining techniques as benchmark and uses real noisy and incomplete data derived from wearable sensors to predict 19 constructs based on 12 standardized well-validated tests. The study included 757 participants who were knowledge workers in organizations across the USA with varied work roles. We developed a data mining framework to extract the meaningful predictors for each of the 19 variables under consideration. Our model is the first benchmark that combines these various instrument-derived variables in a single framework to understand people's behavior by leveraging real uncurated data from wearable, mobile, and social media sources. We verify our approach experimentally using the data obtained from our longitudinal study. The results show that our framework is consistently reliable and capable of predicting the variables under study better than the baselines when prediction is restricted to the noisy, incomplete data.


Parallelizing Machine Learning as a Service for the End-User

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

As ML applications are becoming ever more pervasive, fully-trained systems are made increasingly available to a wide public, allowing end-users to submit queries with their own data, and to efficiently retrieve results. With increasingly sophisticated such services, a new challenge is how to scale up to evergrowing user bases. In this paper, we present a distributed architecture that could be exploited to parallelize a typical ML system pipeline. We propose a case study consisting of a text mining service and discuss how the method can be generalized to many similar applications. We demonstrate the significance of the computational gain boosted by the distributed architecture by way of an extensive experimental evaluation.


Mind the Gap: On Bridging the Semantic Gap between Machine Learning and Information Security

arXiv.org Machine Learning

Despite the potential of Machine learning (ML) to learn the behavior of malware, detect novel malware samples, and significantly improve information security (InfoSec) we see few, if any, high-impact ML techniques in deployed systems, notwithstanding multiple reported successes in open literature. We hypothesize that the failure of ML in making high-impacts in InfoSec are rooted in a disconnect between the two communities as evidenced by a semantic gap---a difference in how executables are described (e.g. the data and features extracted from the data). Specifically, current datasets and representations used by ML are not suitable for learning the behaviors of an executable and differ significantly from those used by the InfoSec community. In this paper, we survey existing datasets used for classifying malware by ML algorithms and the features that are extracted from the data. We observe that: 1) the current set of extracted features are primarily syntactic, not behavioral, 2) datasets generally contain extreme exemplars producing a dataset in which it is easy to discriminate classes, and 3) the datasets provide significantly different representations of the data encountered in real-world systems. For ML to make more of an impact in the InfoSec community requires a change in the data (including the features and labels) that is used to bridge the current semantic gap. As a first step in enabling more behavioral analyses, we label existing malware datasets with behavioral features using open-source threat reports associated with malware families. This behavioral labeling alters the analysis from identifying intent (e.g. good vs bad) or malware family membership to an analysis of which behaviors are exhibited by an executable. We offer the annotations with the hope of inspiring future improvements in the data that will further bridge the semantic gap between the ML and InfoSec communities.


A Comprehensive Survey on Traffic Prediction

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

Traffic prediction plays an essential role in intelligent transportation system. Accurate traffic prediction can assist route planing, guide vehicle dispatching, and mitigate traffic congestion. This problem is challenging due to the complicated and dynamic spatio-temporal dependencies between different regions in the road network. Recently, a significant amount of research efforts have been devoted to this area, greatly advancing traffic prediction abilities. The purpose of this paper is to provide a comprehensive survey for traffic prediction. Specifically, we first summarize the existing traffic prediction methods, and give a taxonomy of them. Second, we list the common applications of traffic prediction and the state-of-the-art in these applications. Third, we collect and organize widely used public datasets in the existing literature. Furthermore, we give an evaluation by conducting extensive experiments to compare the performance of methods related to traffic demand and speed prediction respectively on two datasets. Finally, we discuss potential future directions.

Randomized Kernel Multi-view Discriminant Analysis

arXiv.org Machine Learning

In many artificial intelligence and computer vision systems, the same object can be observed at distinct viewpoints or by diverse sensors, which raises the challenges for recognizing objects from different, even heterogeneous views. Multi-view discriminant analysis (MvDA) is an effective multi-view subspace learning method, which finds a discriminant common subspace by jointly learning multiple view-specific linear projections for object recognition from multiple views, in a non-pairwise way. In this paper, we propose the kernel version of multi-view discriminant analysis, called kernel multi-view discriminant analysis (KMvDA). To overcome the well-known computational bottleneck of kernel methods, we also study the performance of using random Fourier features (RFF) to approximate Gaussian kernels in KMvDA, for large scale learning. Theoretical analysis on stability of this approximation is developed. We also conduct experiments on several popular multi-view datasets to illustrate the effectiveness of our proposed strategy.


Anomaly Detection in Univariate Time-series: A Survey on the State-of-the-Art

arXiv.org Machine Learning

Anomaly detection for time-series data has been an important research field for a long time. Seminal work on anomaly detection methods has been focussing on statistical approaches. In recent years an increasing number of machine learning algorithms have been developed to detect anomalies on time-series. Subsequently, researchers tried to improve these techniques using (deep) neural networks. In the light of the increasing number of anomaly detection methods, the body of research lacks a broad comparative evaluation of statistical, machine learning and deep learning methods. This paper studies 20 univariate anomaly detection methods from the all three categories. The evaluation is conducted on publicly available datasets, which serve as benchmarks for time-series anomaly detection. By analyzing the accuracy of each method as well as the computation time of the algorithms, we provide a thorough insight about the performance of these anomaly detection approaches, alongside some general notion of which method is suited for a certain type of data.
