Most models that explain observations in time depend on a structured state space as a basis for their modeling. We present methods to derive such a state space and its dynamics automatically from the observations, without any knowledge of their meaning or source. First, we build an explicit state space from an observation history in an off-line fashion (OFESI) by starting with the space induced by the observations and splitting a state when new substates significantly improve the information… CONTINUE READING
