Master Thesis: Anomaly detection on ARIMA manifolds


Anomaly detection on ARIMA manifolds


In this thesis, we propose an approach for anomaly detection in time seris data using the parameters of ARIMA/ARMA models. We use sliding windows to cut the given time series into
many sections and fit an ARIMA/ARMA model on each of these sections (windows). The parameters of the fitted ARMA/ARIMA models serve as features. This is how the dimensionality
reduction is achieved. We then detect anomalies in these features (model parameters) to find out which sections of the original time series data contain anomalies. To detect anomalies in
our feature sets, we use five different unsupervised methods: Robust covariance, ONE-Class SVM, Isolation Forest, Local Outlier Factor and Autoencoders. We show that the proposed
method of performing the anomaly detection in the feature space (with the ARIMA/ARMA model parameters of each window as features) returns promising results, especially when using autoencoders for the anomaly detection.
