Time-Varying Interaction Estimation Using Ensemble Methods

by   Brandon Oselio, et al.

Directed information (DI) is a useful tool to explore time-directed interactions in multivariate data. However, as originally formulated DI is not well suited to interactions that change over time. In previous work, adaptive directed information was introduced to accommodate non-stationarity, while still preserving the utility of DI to discover complex dependencies between entities. There are many design decisions and parameters that are crucial to the effectiveness of ADI. Here, we apply ideas from ensemble learning in order to alleviate this issue, allowing for a more robust estimator for exploratory data analysis. We apply these techniques to interaction estimation in a crowded scene, utilizing the Stanford drone dataset as an example.
