The project aims to research and apply a novel approach to Change-Point Detection (CPD) - accurate and rapid detection of a change in the distribution of observed values. Conformal Martingales will overcome crucial limitations of classical methods - in particular by not requiring any prior knowledge of the distribution of the observations before and after the change. The Change-Point Detection problem is widely applicable and can be found in many fields like detection of the onset of an epidemic, automatic video surveillance based on motion features, intrusion detection in computer networks, anomaly detection in data transmission networks, anomaly detection for malicious activity, fault detection in vehicle control systems, drinking water monitoring and many others

In return we offer a highly competitive rewards and benefits package including:
