Abstract: Anomaly detection is a common set of techniques used to address common problems faced by many organizations. Approaches are well-understood and implementation strategies are mature and varied. Despite the availability of computing power and the proliferation of expertise and effective tools, however, challenging problems remain. Black swan events exist; subjectivity is the ultimate definition of true/false. In this talk, we’ll discuss some strategies for incorporating human judgment into the prediction-detection loop in order to improve accuracy, produce more true positives and fewer false positives, and improve user satisfaction.
