In several domains as statistics, signal processing or econometrics, a time series is a sequence of data points, measured typically at successive times spaced at uniform time intervals. Time series data have a natural temporal ordering. This makes time series analysis distinct from other common data analysis problems, in which there is no natural ordering of the observations.


Labeled Faces in the Wild (LFW)

Tech Free

A Database for Studying Face Recognition in Unconstrained Environments Most face databases have been created under controlled conditions to facilitate the study of specific parameters on the face recognition problem.

This database, Labeled Faces in the Wild, is provided as an aid in studying the latter, unconstrained, recognition problem. The database contains labeled face photographs spanning the range of conditions typically encountered in everyday life.

In analyzing large-scale complex networks, it is important to establish a standard dataset from which algorithms and claims be compared and verified. Currently, it is often difficult to track down the original data used for computational experiments. Much of it is floating around in various formats throughout the net, imbedded in papers, and often difficult to get from the authors. Moreover, the datasets are often modified (filtered) by research groups interested in different attributes, so that even when the name and descriptions match a citation in a paper, there is no guarantee that the data is identical.

There is an explosion of interest in Northern Hemisphere climate, and new science programs are highlighting the importance of recent changes in the Arctic on mid-latitude climate impacts. The Bering Sea is one of the world's major fisheries, and fisheries from Alaskan waters represents half of the landed U.S. catch of fish and shellfish. Because of the changes going on in the Arctic, future evolution of the Bering Sea climate/ecosystem is more uncertain. This is a symmetric problem: climate change impacts ecosystems, and ecosystems serve as indicators for climate change.
