Ownership and use of multiple devices such as desktop computers, smartphones, and tablets is increasing rapidly. Search is popular and people often perform search tasks that span device boundaries. Understanding how these devices are used and how people transition between them during information seeking is essential in developing search support for a(More)
Faced with the problem of characterizing systematic changes in multivariate time series in an unsupervised manner, we derive and test two methods of regularizing hidden Markov models for this task. Regularization on state transitions provides smooth transitioning among states, such that the sequences are split into broad, contiguous segments. Our methods(More)
For the task of unsupervised spatio-temporal forecasting (e.g., learning to predict video data without labels), we propose two new nonparametric predictive state algorithms, Moonshine and One Hundred Proof. The algorithms are conceptually simple and make few assumptions on the underlying spatio-temporal process yet have strong predictive performance and(More)
