LSCP: Locally Selective Combination in Parallel Outlier Ensembles

In unsupervised outlier ensembles, the absence of ground truth makes the combination of base outlier detectors a challenging task. Specifically, existing parallel outlier ensembles lack a reliable way of selecting competent base detectors, affecting …

XGBOD: Improving Supervised Outlier Detection with Unsupervised Representation Learning

A new semi-supervised ensemble algorithm called XGBOD (Extreme Gradient Boosting Outlier Detection) is proposed, described and demonstrated for the enhanced detection of outliers from normal observations in various practical datasets. The proposed …

DCSO: Dynamic Combination of Detector Scores for Outlier Ensembles

An empirical study of touch-based authentication methods on smartwatches

The emergence of smartwatches poses new challenges to information security. Although there are mature touch-based authentication methods for smartphones, the effectiveness of using these methods on smartwatches is still unclear. We conducted a user …
