A Fast Distance-Based Algorithm to Detect Outliers
A fast distance-based algorithm for outlier detection will be proposed. It was found that the proposed algorithm reduced the number of distance calculations compared to the nested-loop algorithm. Test results were performed on different well-known data sets. The results showed that the proposed algorithm gave a reasonable amount of CPU time saving.
