  author={Yonatan Aumann and Oren Etzioni and Ronen Feldman and Mike Perkowitz and Tomer Shmiel},
We consider a situation where vents (e.g. manufacturing plant alarms, web-page accesses) occur in sequence. In such cases, the ability to predict future events based on current events can be valuable. A key question, in any given domain, is whe ther the domain is accurately modeled by a simple Markov chain or whether, alt n tively, past history is helpful in predicting future events. If past history is indeed helpful, then data mining algorithms can be helpful in extracting frequent episodes or… CONTINUE READING
