Bayesian Surprise For Identifying Emerging Spatio-Temporal Trends

Overview of Tool:

Utilising Bayesian Statistics and a measure of similarity between prior and posterior probability distributions we adapt the method of Bayesian Surprise, from sensory processing, into a novel approach that can use `surprising’ events as a way to detect emerging spatio-temporal trends.

The application, by design, is capable of functioning with any correctly formatted spatio-temporal data with no restrictions on the data’s domain.
