R Functions implementing UCR Matrix Profile Algorithm (

This package allows you to use the Matrix Profile concept as a toolkit.

This package provides:

  • Algorithms to build a Matrix Profile: STAMP, STOMP, SCRIMP++, SIMPLE, MSTOMP and VALMOD.
  • Algorithms for MOTIF search for Unidimensional and Multidimensional Matrix Profiles.
  • Algorithm for Chains search for Unidimensional Matrix Profile.
  • Algorithms for Semantic Segmentation (FLUSS) and Weakly Labeled data (SDTS).
  • Algorithm for Salient Subsections detection allowing MDS plotting.
  • Basic plotting for all outputs generated here.
  • Sequencial workflow, see below.
# Basic workflow:
matrix <- tsmp(data, window_size = 30) %>%
  find_motif(n_motifs = 3) %T>%

# SDTS still have a unique way to work:
model <- sdts_train(data, labels, windows)
result <- sdts_predict(model, data, round(mean(windows)))

Please refer to the User Manual for more details.

Please be welcome to suggest improvements.
