Time series are ubiquitous in day-by-day of human beings. Consequently, the area of time series analysis has attracted the attention and effort of many researchers around the world. Due to the great interest in time series, many analysis methods have been proposed to in recent decades. Several of these methods have one thing in common: in their cores, there is a similarity function used as the main way to compare the time series. Several studies in the area show that the distance measure Dynamic Time Warping (DTW) is one of the most appropriate measures to compare time series in a wide range of application domains. However, due to its complexity runtime, the application of this measure goes against one of the greatest current challenges in the area: the analysis of large temporal databases. In this project, we are interested in developing techniques that can be used in various tasks of large-scale analysis of time series using similarity. For this purpose, the main hypothesis of this work is that the efficiency of the algorithm that calculates the DTW distance measure can be improved taking into account only the two series to be compared. Such improvements of the DTW algorithm should be able to provide a significantly better time performance in different tasks of time series analysis. In this project, we describe the objectives and the tasks to be done to achieve them. In addition, we present the basic concepts of time series analysis and its applications in large volumes of data.
