English Missing values are very common in real-world data including time-series data. Failures in power, communication or storage can leave occasional blocks of data missing in multiple series, affecting not only real-time monitoring but also compromising the quality of data analysis. Traditional recovery (imputation) techniques often leverage the correlation across time series to recover missing blocks in multiple series. These recovery techniques, however, assume high correlation and fall short in recovering missing blocks when the series exhibit variations in correlation. In this paper, we introduce a novel approach called CDRec to recover large missing blocks in time series with high and low correlations. CDRec relies on the centroid decomposition (CD) technique to recover multiple time series at a time. We also propose and analyze a new algorithm called Incremental Scalable Sign Vector to efficiently compute CD in long time series. We empirically evaluate the accuracy and the efficiency of our recovery technique on several real-world datasets that represent a broad range of applications. The results show that our recovery is orders of magnitude faster than the most accurate algorithm while producing superior results in terms of recovery.
