Abstract

Temporal pattern recognition is challenging because temporal patterns require extra considerations over other data types, such as order, structure, and temporal distortions. Recently, there has been a trend in using large data and deep learning, however, many of the tools cannot be directly used with temporal patterns. Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) for instance are traditionally used for visual and image pattern recognition. This paper proposes a method using a neural network to classify isolated temporal patterns directly. The proposed method uses dynamic time warping (DTW) as a kernel-like function to learn dissimilarity-based feature maps as the basis of the network. We show that using the proposed DTW-NN, efficient classification of on-line handwritten digits is possible with accuracies comparable to state-of-the-art methods.
