In this paper, we investigate the research problem of specifying the thresholds to effectively detect outliers and propose an innovative technique that leverages multiple localized thresholds for detecting outliers. Our technique is able to overcome a major limitation of the existing outlier detection approaches that use a single universal threshold to distinguish outliers from normal data. The experiments conducted demonstrate that our technique is able to achieve a better detection effectiveness than the traditional approaches.
