I'm not specifically aware of anyone in Oahu. Although, my group's timeseries interest pertains to astronomy, and there is a somewhat similar project called Pan-STARRs at the Institute for Astronomy, at UH Manoa. I don't believe they are exploring machine learning to the same degree as my group, but but they could be a potential source of insights.
Hi Nelson, I gather you have some interest and experience with timeseries classification? Although I've generally been in Kauai the last couple years, I might drop by Kailua in the near future. I'll keep you in mind if I'm in Oahu.
