    Abstract

    In this paper, we propose support vector-based supervised learning algorithms, called multiclass support vector data description with weighted dynamic time warping kernel function (MSVDD-WDTWK) and multiclass support vector machines with weighted dynamic time warping kernel function (MSVM-WDTWK), which provides a flexible and robust kernel function for time series classification between non-aligned time series data resulting in improved accuracy. The proposed WDTW kernel function provides an optimal match between two time series data by not only allowing a non-linear mapping between two data sequences, but also considering relative significance depending on the phase difference between points on time series data. We validate the proposed approaches using extensive numerical experiments on a number of multiclass UCR time series data mining archive, and demonstrate that our proposed methods provide lower classification error rates compared with existing techniques.
