Our friends over at Noah Data have written a research style paper, Introduction to Statistical Analysis and Outlier Detection Methods, that discusses how statistical data can generally be classified in terms of number of variables as Univariate, Bivariate or Multivariate. Univariate data has only one variable, Bivariate data has two variables and Multivariate data has more than two variables.

The paper addresses Multivariate Outlier detection which is a ubiquitous use case across industries. These can be used on summarized (moving average, standard deviation etc.) high frequency IoT variables to calculate outlier source of those variables. These can be used for machine learning based predictive maintenance of physical equipment assets. The same can be applied in oil & gas industry for very similar use case. This topic is extremely critical to a data scientist.

The paper was authored by Ashish Kumar, a data scientist at Noah Data, is an author and a data science professional with several years of experience in the field of Advanced Analytics. He has a B.Tech from IIT Madras and is a Young India Fellow, an exclusive 1-year academic program on leadership & liberal arts offered to 215 young bright Indians, who show exceptional intellectual & leadership ability.
