In this study, we applied the Classification Based on Association (CBA) algorithm, one of the class association rule mining techniques, to the TG-GATEs database, where both toxicogenomic and toxicological data of more than 150 compounds in rat and human are stored. We compared the generated classifiers between CBA and linear discriminant analysis (LDA) and showed that CBA is superior to LDA in terms of both predictive performances (accuracy: 83% for CBA vs. 75% for LDA, sensitivity: 82% for CBA vs. 72% for LDA, specificity: 85% for CBA vs. 75% for LDA) and interpretability.. |

Several techniques that apply scatterplot matrices have been proposed to represent multi-dimensional data as a collection of two-dimensional data visualization spaces. Typically, when using the scatterplot-based approach it is easier to understand relations between particular pairs of dimensions, but it often requires too large display spaces to display all possible scatterplots. This paper presents a technique to display meaningful sets of scatterplots generated from high-dimensional datasets. Our technique first evaluates all possible scatterplots generated from high-dimensional datasets, and selects meaningful sets. It then calculates the similarity between arbitrary pairs of the selected scatterplots, and places relevant scatterplots closer together in the display space while they never overlap each other. This design policy makes users easier to visually compare relevant sets of scatterplots. This paper presents algorithms to place the scatterplots by the combination of ideal position calculation and rectangle packing algorithms, and two examples demonstrating the effectiveness of the presented technique.. |

Proceedings - 2013 17th International Conference on Information Visualisation, IV 2013, 10.1109/IV.2013.7, 59-65, 2013.12, Multidimensional data visualization is an important research topic that has been receiving increasing attention. Several techniques that use parallel coordinate plots have been proposed to represent all dimensions of data in a single display space. In addition, several other techniques that apply scatter plot matrices have been proposed to represent multidimensional data as a collection of low-dimensional data visualization spaces. Typically, when using the latter approach it is easier to understand relations among particular dimensions, but it is often difficult to observe relations between dimensions separated into different visualization spaces. This paper presents a framework for displaying an arrangement of low-dimensional data visualization spaces that are generated from high-dimensional datasets. Our proposed technique first divides the dimensions of the input datasets into groups of lower dimensions based on their correlations or other relationships. If the groups of lower dimensions can be visualized in independent rectangular spaces, our technique packs the set of low-dimensional data visualizations into a single display space. Because our technique places relevant low-dimensions closer together in the display space, it is easier to visually compare relevant sets of low-dimensional data visualizations. In this paper, we describe in detail how we implement our framework using parallel coordinate plots, and present several results demonstrating its effectiveness.. |

In this paper, we propose a novel pool-based active learning framework through density power divergence. It is known that density power divergence, such as β-divergence and γ-divergence, can be accurately estimated even under the existence of outliers (noisy labels) within data. In addition, we propose an evaluation scheme for these measures based on those asymptotic statistical analyses, which enables us to perform active learning by evaluating an estimation variance. Experiments on artificial and real-world datasets show that our active learning scheme performs better than state-of-the-art methods.. |

In this paper, we propose a robust pool-based AL measure based on the density power divergence. It is known that the density power divergence can be accurately estimated even under the existence of outliers within data. We further derive an AL scheme based on an asymptotic statistical analysis on the M-estimator. The performance of the proposed framework is investigated empirically using artificial and real-world data.. |

This is achieved by the fusion of the recent works in the fields of machine learning and system control. Because the procedure for constructing a state sequence in subspace identification can be interpreted as the Canonical Correlation Analysis(CCA) between past and future observation sequences, we can derive a latent variable representation for this problem. Therefore, as in a similar manner to the recent works on learning a mixture of probabilistic models, we obtain a framework for constructing a state space by aligning local linear coordinates. This leads to a prominent algorithm for learning non-linear dynamical systems. Finally, we apply our method to motion capture data and telemetry data, and then show how our algorithm works well.. |

2010 IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence, WCCI 2010 - 2010 International Joint Conference on Neural Networks, IJCNN 2010, 10.1109/IJCNN.2010.5596737, 2010.12, Many multivariate Gaussianity-based techniques for identifying causal networks of observed variables have been proposed. These methods have several problems such that they cannot uniquely identify the causal networks without any prior knowledge. To alleviate this problem, a non-Gaussianity-based identification method LiNGAM was proposed. Though the LiNGAM potentially identifies a unique causal network without using any prior knowledge, it needs to properly examine independence assumptions of the causal network and search the correct causal network by using finite observed data points only. On another front, a kernel based independence measure that evaluates the independence more strictly was recently proposed. In addition, some advanced generic search algorithms including beam search have been extensively studied in the past. In this paper, we propose some variants of the LiNGAM method which introduce the kernel based method and the beam search enabling more accurate causal network identification. Furthermore, we experimentally characterize the LiNGAM and its variants in terms of accuracy and robustness of their identification.. |

However, in many settings the observation is a mixture of stationary and non-stationary sources. The aim of Stationary Subspace Analysis (SSA) is to factorize multivariate data into its stationary and non-stationary components. In this paper, we propose a novel SSA algorithm (ASSA) that extracts stationary sources from multiple time series blocks. It has a globally optimal solution under certain assumptions that can be obtained by solving a generalized eigenvalue problem. Apart from the numerical advantages, we also show that compared to the existing method, fewer blocks are required in ASSA to guarantee the identifiability of the solution. We demonstrate the validity of our approach in simulations and in an application to domain adaptation.. |

This method first learns a mapping from the original data space to a low dimensional space and its reverse mapping by applying linear or non-linear dimensionality reduction algorithms to a normal training data set. After the training, it applies the learned pair of mappings to a test data set to obtain a reconstructed data set, and then evaluate the reconstruction errors. We will show the results of applying several representative linear and non-lineardimensionality reduction algorithms with this framework to the electrical power subsystem (EPS) data of actual artificial satellites.. |

63. | Yoshinobu Kawahara, Takehisa Yairi, Kazuo Machida, Change-point detection algorithms based on subspace methods, Transactions of the Japanese Society for Artificial Intelligence, 23, 2, 76-84, 2008.04, In this paper, we propose a class of algorithms for detecting the change-points in time-series data based on subspace identification, which is originaly a geometric approach for estimating linear state-space models generating time-series data. Our algorithms are derived from the principle that the subspace spanned by the columns of an observability matrix and the one spanned by the subsequences of time-series data are approximately equivalent. In this paper, we derive a batch-type algorithm applicable to ordinary time-series data, i.e., consisting of only output series, and then introduce the online version of the algorithm and the extension to be available with input-output time-series data. We illustrate the superior performance of our algorithms with comparative experiments using artificial and real datasets.. |

2006 SICE-ICASE International Joint Conference, 10.1109/SICE.2006.315754, 1425-1430, 2006.12, From industrial situation to ordinary life, there are a lot of cables in today's society. There, however, are not many studies that describe the topological relationship between multibple cables for autonomous operation of robotics device. In this paper, an autonomous computing way to create 3-D topological model of multiple cables using image is discussed. Cable model is described by probablity density function and optimized its parameters via EM Algorithm, that indicates the configuration and topological relationships. In order to manipulate the object cables then, depth from sensor to points are added to the unique points in topological graph structure derived from EM model. The quantitative results of basic experiment that was aimed to prove the recognition possibility via the algorithm are reported.. |

2nd IEEE International Conference on Space Mission Challenges for Information Technology, 10.1109/SMC-IT.2006.79, 466-473, 2006.12, For any space mission, safety and reliability are the most important issues. To tackle this problem, we have studied anomaly detection and fault diagnosis methods for spacecraft systems based on machine learning (ML) and data mining (DM) technology. In these methods, the knowledge or model which is necessary for monitoring a spacecraft system is (semi-)automatically acquired from the spacecraft telemetry data. In this paper, we first overview the anomaly detection / diagnosis problem in the spacecraft systems and conventional techniques such as limit-check, expert systems and model-based diagnosis. Then we explain the concept of ML/DM-based approach to this problem, and introduce several anomaly detection / diagnosis methods which have been developed by us.. |

We suggest a framework for visualization of relations among sequences based on "changing points". First, we employ auto-regression model for detecting changing points from data. And next, we apply a structure learning of dynamic Bayesian Net to the change-detected data for getting the graph structure, which stands for dependency among sequences. We applied this approach to two kinds of actual telemetry data of a communication satellite, and verified graph structures rightly showed the relation among sequences.. |

European Space Agency, (Special Publication) ESA SP, 603, 649-656, 2005.12, Development of sophisticated anomaly detection and diagnosis methods for spacecraft is one of the important problems in space system operation. In this study, we propose a diagnosis method for spacecraft using probabilistic reasoning and statistical learning with Dynamic Bayesian Networks (DBNs). In this method, the DBNs are initially from prior-knowledge, then modified or partly re-constructed by statistical learning with operation data, as a result adaptable and in-depth diagnosis is performed by probabilistic reasoning using the DBNs. The proposed method was applied to the telemetry data that simulates the malfunction of thrusters in rendezvous maneuver of spacecraft, and the effectiveness of the method was confirmed.. |
