Calibration and Evaluation of Outlier Detection with Generated Data

Steinbuß, Georg

Abstract (englisch):
Outlier detection is an essential part of data science --- an area with increasing relevance in a plethora of domains. While there already exist numerous approaches for the detection of outliers, some significant challenges remain relevant. Two prominent such challenges are that outliers are rare and not precisely defined. They both have serious consequences, especially on the calibration and evaluation of detection methods. This thesis is concerned with a possible way of dealing with these challenges: the generation of outliers. It discusses existing techniques for generating outliers but specifically also their use in tackling the mentioned challenges. In the literature, the topic of outlier generation seems to have only little general structure so far --- despite that many techniques were already proposed. Thus, the first contribution of this thesis is a unified and crisp description of the state-of-the-art in outlier generation and their usages. Given the variety of characteristics of the generated outliers and the variety of methods designed for the detection of real outliers, it becomes apparent that a comparison of detection performance should be more distinctive than state-of-the-art comparisons are. ... mehr
