Abstract: Researchers have advocated that a pre-processing step is needed before applying massive time series data to high computational applications such as data mining algorithms, even if this introduces a reduction in the quality and nature of the original time series data. During the last two decades various time series dimensionality reduction techniques have been proposed in the literature to serve as a pre-processing step; one of these is numerosity reduction. Numerosity reduction gives excellent response time on complex data mining algorithms when comparing the same process over the raw time series. However no study have been dedicated to compare these time series dimensionality reduction techniques in terms of their effectiveness of producing a good representation that when applied to various data mining algorithms produces accurate results. The study selected nine well known times series datasets, applied four reduction techniques with five levels of reductions, and five knowledge extraction techniques also well known for time series mining. For each permutation we applied post processing evaluation metrics and produced an average accuracy level when compared to the same time series and data mining procedure on the raw time series. It has been shown that the Piecewise Aggregate Approximation (PAA) is able to produce results with more than 70% accuracy when applied to a partitional, hierarchical and classification algorithm. Furthermore, a Symbolic Aggregate Approximation (SAX) representation with a larger alphabet size produces higher accurate results than a SAX representation with a smaller alphabet size. On the other hand, the Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) produces results of lower accuracy than both the PAA and SAX techniques. Results have indicated a change in results’ accuracy levels from clustering and classification algorithms to the motif and discord discovery algorithms. The former algorithms produced results of higher accuracy than the latter algorithms.
