IoT Anomaly Detection 101: Data Science to Predict the Unexpected Yes! You can predict the chance of a mechanical failure or security breach before it happens. Part one of a two-part series.
Anomaly detection problems do not offer a classic training set with labeled examples for classes: a signal from a normally functioning system and a signal from a system with an analogy. In this case, we can only train a machine learning model on a training set with "normal" examples and use a distance measure between the original signal and the predicted signal to trigger an anomaly alarm.
