Weekly Report -- 11/05/2012




Spent the week working through a number of possible techniques for finding a suitable threshold for reporting anomalies in my forecast residuals. This involved learning about Mahalanobis distances, chi-square distributions and Stahel-Donoho estimates. Currently, I'm playing with Shewhart control charts, which are mainly used for measuring industrial quality. Managed to get a good result with the Windows Messenger test data I have, although the results for the BitTorrent test data suggest that more tweaking may be required.

Had to quickly revise my IMC paper to pass the format checker on the submission site. This took a little longer than anticipated as the format checker was configured with the wrong page size!

Helped out with Open Day on Friday, mainly by talking to people and impressing them with the wonders of networking.
