We organized a Challenge to unravel the connectivity of simulated neuronal networks. The provided data was solely based on fluorescence time series of spontaneous activity in a network constituted by 1000 neurons. The task of the participants was to compute the effective connectivity between neurons, with the goal to reconstruct as accurately as possible(More)
Data and knowledge management systems employ feature selection algorithms for removing irrelevant, redundant, and noisy information from the data. There are two well-known approaches to feature selection, feature ranking (FR) and feature subset selection (FSS). In this paper, we propose a new FR algorithm, termed as class-dependent density-based feature(More)
Development of a temporal query framework for time-oriented medical databases has hitherto been a challenging problem. We describe a novel method for the detection of hemodynamic events in multiparameter trends utilizing wavelet coefficients in a MySQL relational database. Storage of the wavelet coefficients allowed for a compact representation of the(More)
ChaLearn is organizing the Automatic Machine Learning (AutoML) contest for IJCNN 2015, which challenges participants to solve classification and regression problems without any human intervention. Participants' code is automatically run on the contest servers to train and test learning machines. However, there is no obligation to submit code; half of the(More)
We are organizing a challenge to reverse engineer the structure of neuronal networks from patterns of activity recorded with calcium fluorescence imaging. Unraveling the brain structure at the neuronal level at a large scale is an important step in brain science, with many ramifications in the comprehension of animal and human intelligence and learning(More)
This paper presents the use of Bernoulli mixture models for Markov blanket filtering and classification of binary data. Bernoulli mixture models can be seen as a tool for partitioning an n-dimensional hypercube, identifying regions of high data density on the corners of the hypercube. Once Bernoulli mixture models are computed from a training dataset we use(More)
We present a similarity-based searching and pattern matching algorithm that identifies time series data with similar temporal dynamics in large-scale, multi-parameter databases. We represent time series segments by feature vectors that reflect the dynamical patterns of single and multi-dimensional physiological time series. Features include regression(More)
