Detecting and localising changes in different environments.
Abstract: A key assumption in many statistical problems is ``i.i.d.’’, that is to assume data are independent and identically distributed. This is hardly true in real data. One way to relax this assumption is to assume data are piecewise stationary, over a time series or more generally over a graph. This is the motivation of the change point analysis. In this talk I will give a general overview of the change point analysis, revolving around two fundamental questions and covering a range of different examples.
