High Performance Discovery in Time Series: Techniques and Case Studies

Time-series data—data arriving in time order, or an information stream—can be present in fields comparable to physics, finance, tune, networking, and scientific instrumentation. Designing quickly, scalable algorithms for interpreting unmarried or a number of time sequence may end up in clinical discoveries, scientific diagnoses, and maybe gains.

In this study, only the reading times of the fourth sentences, (8d/d’) are analyzed. 3 Results The results of Experiment 1 are shown in Figure 1. There was a main effect of CONTEXT, no effect of REFERENT, but a marginally significant interaction between the two. In the CONTROL condition, participants read the AGENT continuation sentence faster suggesting they preferred the pronoun in the continuation sentence to be coreferent with John—the syntactically and semantically prominent entity in the context sentence.

In one item the second antecedent was in the object position, in another item the first antecedent. That is, experimental materials were largely congruent in that both antecedents were structurally parallel to the anaphoric pronoun. An effect of different grammatical roles between anaphor and antecedents on participants' choices can therefore be excluded. Simultaneously, we can eliminate the possibility that pure subjecthood is responsible for our results. Situation models. g.
