stray: Anomaly Detection in High Dimensional and Temporal Data. This is a modification of ’HDoutliers’ package. The ’HDoutliers’ algorithm is a powerful unsupervised algorithm for detecting anomalies in high-dimensional data, with a strong theoretical foundation. However, it suffers from some limitations that significantly hinder its performance level, under certain circumstances. This package implements the algorithm proposed in Talagala, Hyndman and Smith-Miles (2019) <arXiv:1908.04000> for detecting anomalies in high-dimensional data that addresses these limitations of ’HDoutliers’ algorithm. We define an anomaly as an observation that deviates markedly from the majority with a large distance gap. An approach based on extreme value theory is used for the anomalous threshold calculation.
