Title: Data Science, Time Complexity, and Spacekime Analytics
Abstract: The immersion of Big Data in all human experiences presents important challenges of managing, modeling, analyzing, interpreting, and visualizing complex information. There is a substantial need to develop, validate, productize, and support novel mathematical techniques, advanced statistical computing algorithms, transdisciplinary tools, and effective artificial intelligence apps.
Spacekime analytics is a new technique for modeling high-dimensional longitudinal data. This approach relies on extending the notions of time, events, particles, and wavefunctions to complex-time (kime), complex-events (kevents), data and inference-functions. We will illustrate how the kime-magnitude (longitudinal time order) and kime-direction (phase) affect the subsequent predictive analytics and the induced scientific inference. The mathematical foundation of spacekime calculus will reveal various statistical implications including inferential uncertainty and a Bayesian formulation of spacekime analytics. Complexifying time allows the lifting of all commonly observed processes from the classical 4D Minkowski spacetime to a 5D spacetime manifold, where a number of interesting mathematical problems arise.
Direct data science applications of spacekime analytics will be demonstrated using simulated data, clinical observations (e.g., UK Biobank), and environmental air quality data.
