Detection of Sequential Outliers Using a Variable Length Markov Model
Mining for outliers in sequential databases is crucial to forward appropriate analysis of data. Therefore, many approaches for the discovery of such anomalies have been proposed. However, most of them use a sample of known typical sequences to build the model. Besides, they remain greedy in terms of memory usage. In this paper we propose an extension of one such approach, based on a Probabilistic Suffix Tree and on a measure of similarity. We add a pruning criterion which reduces the size of the tree while improving the model, and a sharp inequality for the concentration of the measure of similarity, to better sort the outliers. We prove the feasability of our approach through a set of experiments over a protein database.
