Conjoint Modeling of Temporal Dependencies in Event Streams

Ankur P. Parikh, Asela Gunawardana, and Christopher Meek


Many real world applications depend on modeling the temporal dynamics of streams of diverse events, many of which are rare. We introduce a novel model class, Conjoint

Piecewise-Constant Conditional Intensity Models, and a learning algorithm that together yield a data-driven approach to parameter sharing with the aim of better modeling such event streams. We empirically demonstrate that our approach yields more accurate models of two real world data sets: search query logs and data center system logs.
