Sequence Learning via Bayesian Clustering by Dynamics
This chapter introduces a Bayesian method for clustering dynamic processes. The method models dynamics as Markov chains and then applies an agglomerative clustering procedure to discover the most probable set of clusters capturing different dynamics. To increase efficiency, the algorithm uses an entropy-based heuristic search strategy. When applied to clustering sensor data from mobile robots, the algorithm produces clusters that are meaningful in the domains of application.
