Efficiently Evaluating Order Preserving Similarity Queries over Historical Market-Basket Data
We introduce a new domain-independent framework for formulating and efficiently evaluating similarity queries over historical data, where given a history as a sequence of timestamped observations and the pair-wise similarity of observations, we want to find similar histories. For instance, given a database of customer transactions and a time period, we can find customers with similar purchasing behaviors over this period. Our work is different from the work on retrieving similar time series; it addresses the general problem in which a history cannot be modeled as a time series, hence the relevant conventional approaches are not applicable. We derive a similarity measure for histories, based on an aggregation of the similarities between the observations of the two histories, and propose efficient algorithms for finding an optimal alignment between two histories. Given the non-metric nature of our measure, we develop some upper bounds and an algorithm that makes use of those bounds to p...
