Quintessential Event Processing: Signature Versus Anomaly Detection

Detection experts understand that the optimal detection design and architecture is generally a combination of both signature and anomaly detection engines.   In event processing, signature detection involves the real-time pattern matching analysis of events.   A core advantage of signature detection is that basic pattern matching models are easy to understand and develop when you [...]

Modelling Air Traffic Control

Posted on 09/08/08 2 Comments

Today I will discuss a general approach to model air traffic control (ATC) using our CEP/EP reference architecture which is an application of the mature JDL multisensor data fusion model. ATC is an excellent working example of complex event processing.   Radar and GPS provide the basic sensory information to accurately track and trace the position of each aircraft [...]

The Kum Bai Ya of Event Processing

Posted on 09/01/08 3 Comments

Kindred spirit Marc Adler mentions being a bit ”turned off” by the sniping back-and-forth in the CEP/EP blog-o-sphere.  This was exactly how I felt in early 2006 when folks were sniping back and forth about SQL standards and event stream processing (ESP).  A group of vendors had created some stream processing engines and all were in “power positioning” mode with the acronyms “ESP” and ”CEP”, hoping to ride [...]

On CEP as a Discipline

Posted on 08/05/08 No Comments

In  CEP as a Discipline,  David Luckham wrote:  “Actually, it is fair to say that some of CEP can be found in other disciplines. Event processing has been going on in one form or another, for the past 50 years. Simulation, Networking, Active DBs, Middleware. { …. } CEP has only just begun. The foundations [...]
