In this project seminar, we investigate and improve anomaly detection algorithms for multivariate time series. The participants will receive a broad selection of state-of-the-art anomaly detection algorithms (with code and papers) and are then challenged to beat these approaches in runtime and/or precision. Techniques that we consider for this task involve, inter alia, workload parallelization and distribution, streaming, ensambling, machine learning, and hybridization.


For this seminar, participants need to be able to program fluently in at least one higher-level (functional or object-oriented) programming language, such as Java/Scala/Kotlin, Python, C++, Ruby etc. The seminar also requires some fundamental knowledge about basic algorithms and data structures.

The following skills are a plus, but can also be learned during the seminar:

  • Experience in Python, Numpy, and PyTorch, because most of the existing algorithms are implemented in these technologies
  • Knowledge about the development of efficient and scalable algorithms (ideally Distributed Data Management)
  • Some fundamental understanding of data mining and machine learning algorithms
