Would one / some of you please go into some (greater) detail explaining the following terms / usages:
a - ‘inference’ - how is it used in the context of anomaly detection?
b - the third line of ‘PublisherSupplier.builder().addHeader()’ - what’s a ‘blank’? how are these settings used? I’ve read the source and (kind of) get ‘category’ and ‘timestamp’ but not ‘blank’. What happens if this field is left empty?
c - when I run ~20K iterations of my dataset (timestamp, param0, p1, p2, result) where only the timestamp and result fields are changing - the values for ‘SDR.cellsAsColumnIndices(inf.getPredictiveCells(), …)’ and ‘inf.getAnomalyScore()’ never change. The first being integers from 0-18 and the second being 0.0 consistently. Is this insufficient data to find patterms? The ‘hot gym’ seems to find an equilibrium fairly rapidly. Perhaps my data is not regular enough within the span of time? How would I expand the ‘memory’ of the HTM setup?
d - how does HTM (nupic specifically) deal with timestamped data that’s out of sequence?
