  • Ensembles for unsupervised outlier detection is an emerging topic that has been neglected for a surprisingly long time (although there are reasons why this is more difficult than supervised ensembles or even clustering ensembles). Aggarwal recently discussed algorithmic patterns of outlier detection ensembles, identified traces of the idea in the literature, and remarked on potential as well as unlikely avenues for future transfer of concepts from supervised ensembles. Complementary to his… CONTINUE READING
