Outlier

A data point significantly different from others in the same set. An outlier is generally due to statistical noise and not to any fundamental difficulty with the data set. Taking the mean and median values of a data set can help reduce the influence of outliers. They are also called outlying observations.

In the case of robust outlier technology, the frictions center on the lack of widely known and readily available methods to identify, test, and treat outliers.
In addition to pledging Outlier's commitment to diversity and inclusion, Jordan helped Warner Bros' parent WarnerMedia to adopt a company-wide policy aimed at having more women, people of colour, members of LGBTQ communities, people with disabilities and other underrepresented groups in greater numbers in front of and behind the camera.
Another thread woven through "Outliers" might be termed "interracialization"--solidarity across racial lines forged via pictorial homage--a gesture that can be seen in three portraits by black artists from the '40s of white abolitionist John Brown, one carved by Henry Bannarn, one painted by William H.
Further, the Great Recession had a very short-lived impact (one quarter) on three countries (Germany, Japan, and the Netherlands) as they experienced an additive outlier. In fact, according to those results, it means that there is no definitive reduction of the output growth after the recession; otherwise a level shift break would have been preferred.
Other outliers can be creative almost to the point of the bizarre.
This paper presents a novel approach to detect anomalies in computer network using Local Outlier Factor algorithm.
To determine point outliers, outlier detection is conducted using the standard deviation method.
However, the least-squares criterion and Pearson's correlation are not robust to outliers. To achieve the robustness in estimation and select the informative predictors robustly, the authors propose replacing the least-squares criterion with MM-estimation [12] where the MM- estimators are efficient and have high breakdown points.
In this section, we introduce our online gradient learning method, which is called RoAdam (Robust Adam) to train long short-term memory (LSTM) for time series prediction in the presence of outliers. Our method does not directly detect the outliers and adaptively tunes the learning rate when facing a suspicious outlier.
Many researchers proposed methods of dealing with the outlier problem in PLS regression.
Important research in the clustering methods applications is the outlier problem.
A new algorithm is proposed here to especially do outlier detection for ore inspection data which obtain from chemical or physical testing equipment.
