Accelerator control systems generates and stores many time-series data related to the performance of an accelerator and its support systems. Many of these time series data have detectable change trends and patterns. Being able to timely detect and recognize these data change trends and patterns, analyse and predict the future data changes can provide intelligent ways to improve the controls system with proactive feedback/forward actions. With the help of advanced data mining and machine

As machine learning technology matures with the inclusion of powerful model algorithms, data processing tools, and visualization libraries in different programming languages (e.g. Python, R, Java, etc), it becomes relatively easy for developers to learn and apply machine learning technology to online accelerator control system data. This paper explores time series data analysis and forecasting in the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) control systems with the Waikato Environment for Knowledge Analysis (WEKA) system and its Java data mining APIs.
