Project Description

This project will be implemented in Enterprise Control Language (ECL) on the Big Data processing platform HPCC Systems. The expected result is an anomaly detection bundle with a user-friendly interface. The student will research existing anomaly detection methods and choose a few to implement in ECL and test the performance in HPCC Systems.  Student will collaboratively identify appropriate datasets for testing, and will produce tested production code implementing the selected algorithms. The selected algorithms should be supported by a research paper or publication. A widely adopted algorithm is preferred. After 12 week's hard work, we would like to have your work summarized in a white paper. In the previous internships, many project results are turned into paper publications in different conferences and journals including top venues. Although it's not required, we suggest student aim for it.

* Free ECL online training is available for students who don't have previous ECL programming experience. It's recommended to complete the training before the internship starts for a better internship experience.
