Abstract of the talk:

From the recent years the Internet of Things is an increasingly becoming integral part of our daily lives. Most of the time, the time series data/signals are generated from these IoT devices. The real time analysis of these signals are very important for ease of doing things and making our lives easier. In this talk, we will first understand what a time series signal is? What are the main sources in the world from which the time series signals are generated? A lot of motivational real examples and AI products and solutions will be explained in order to understand the importance and real use of the time series data analysis. Machine Learning concepts from very basic building blocks to advanced architectures including the Deep Neural Networks will be explained. The classical signal processing methods to analyze the time series data analysis along with its machine learning/deep learning counterpart algorithms will be explained along with the comparison of different state of the art approaches. The research problems of the domain along with the challenges shall also be addressed during the session.
