Lab: Detect Times Series Anomalies

Lab: Detect Times Series Anomalies

Use Case: Predictive Maintenance

About this Mission

Quickly identifying anomalies can save your organization from unscheduled downtime, as well as money and its reputation. On this mission, you will build an anomaly detection model and use a labeled test set to improve the model.

Mission format and duration: self-paced, hands-on, 1 hour

Upon completion of this mission, you will be able to: 

  • Build a time-aware unsupervised ML model to detect anomalies in the predictive maintenance dataset
  • Evaluate anomaly models using the Synthetic Area Under the Curve (AUC) metric
  • Analyze and compare anomaly detection models using the Anomaly Over Time tool
  • Compare models by uploading a labeled test set and using the Confusion Matrix and Anomaly Assessment tools

Who should complete this mission?

  • Business Analysts
  • Citizen Data Scientists
  • Data Scientists
