Classification in Complex Event Processing

Posted on 02/01/09 2 Comments

Following up on the excellent discussion in Predicting Events with Logistic Regression I think it is time to talk a bit about the importance of classification in complex event processing.  CEP is, by definition, about detecting business opportunities and threats in real-time.   It follows, that by definition, CEP is centered around classifying and discriminating complex [...]

Apache Mahout: Real-Time Decisioning in the MapReduce Framework

Posted on 01/14/09 2 Comments

Here is a bit of good news for the complex event processing space.  Folks on the Apache Mahout developers mailing list are showing an accelerated interest in topics related to real-time decision-making, starting with a Markov decision process. The Hidden Markov Model (HMM) is listed under “non map-reduce algorithms” on the Mahout wiki.  The developer’s [...]

Computing in the Clouds with AWS

Posted on 07/25/08 2 Comments

The admin team at The UNIX Forums have been considering moving the UNIX and Linux Forums to the clouds – the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud.  Amazon EC2 is one option to scale the forums, which is a LAMP application.  Amazon EC2 allows us to rent dedicated servers (instances) on-demand to run applications, such as the forums.  Then we can run [...]

Coral8: Event Stream Processing and Intrusion Detection

Posted on 01/03/08 4 Comments

Not quite ready for prime-time, we have been testing our home-grown UNIX domain socket adapter using Coral8 Java APIs.   We are using this adapter to evaluate and demonstrate stream processing with intrusion detection systems (IDS) using event stream processing to reduce false alarms, detect derived situations from the raw intrusion event data, and feed a security management visualization dashboard. [...]
