Realtime Learning and Discovery in Large Scale Networks

In many financial and communications industries, data from networks are becoming increasingly important. Two aspects of network data that are particularly challenging concern the size of the data stream and it's timeliness. Indeed we have been concerned with industrial strength applications that consist of hundreds of millions of transactions (i.e., packets, conversations) that need to be analyzed, summarized and acted upon, within 24 hours. Furthermore some applications (e.g., fraud and network intrusion detection) require real-time analysis and intervention.

We will share our experiences in these applications, stressing statistical and computational issues. Several examples of web-based delivery systems will be presented that convey the scope and scale of what is possible today --- and what might be coming tomorrow. [Joint work with RA Becker, C Cortes, and AR Wilks]

Daryl Pregibon is Head of Statistics Research at AT&T Labs. His group is focused on providing the computational and theoretical foundation for the application of statistics to very large data sets. He is Past-Chair of the premier datamining conference (KDD) and remains the Chair of the Committee on Applied and Theoretical Statistics at the National Academy of Science.
