In highly populated urban zones, it is common to notice headway deviations (HD) between pairs of buses. When these events occur in a bus stop, they often cause bus bunching (BB) in the following bus stops. Several proposals have been suggested to mitigate this problem. In this paper, we propose to find BBS (Bunching Black Spots) – sequences of bus stops(More)
Decision rules are one of the most expressive languages for machine learning. In this paper we present Adaptive Model Rules (AMRules), the first streaming rule learning algorithm for regression problems. In AMRules the antecedent of a rule is a conjunction of conditions on the attribute values, and the consequent is a linear combination of attribute values.(More)
In this work, we introduce the MuSer, a propositional framework that explores temporal information available in multi-relational databases. At the core of this system is an encoding technique that translates the temporal information into a propositional sequence of events. By using this technique, we are able to explore the temporal information using a(More)

The motivation for this work is the study and prediction of wind ramp events occurring in a large-scale wind farm located in the US Midwest. In this paper we introduce the SHREA framework, a stream-based model that continuously learns a discrete HMM model from wind power and wind speed measurements. We use a supervised learning algorithm to learn HMM(More)
In this work we present an optimized version of XMuSer, an ILP based framework suitable to explore temporal patterns available in multi-relational databases. The main idea behind XMuSer consists of exploiting frequent sequence mining, an efficient and direct method to learn temporal patterns in the form of sequences. The efficiency of XMuSer comes from a(More)
Anurans (frogs or toads) are closely related to the ecosystem and they are commonly used by biologists as early indicators of ecological stress. Automatic classification of anurans, by processing their calls, helps biologists analyze the activity of anurans on larger scale. Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) can be used for gathering data automatically over a(More)
