Python implementation of
FastDTW <http://cs.fit.edu/~pkc/papers/tdm04.pdf> , which is an approximate Dynamic Time Warping (DTW) algorithm that provides optimal or near-optimal alignments with an O(N) time and memory complexity.
pip install fastdtw
import numpy as np from scipy.spatial.distance import euclidean
from fastdtw import fastdtw
x = np.array([[1,1], [2,2], [3,3], [4,4], [5,5]]) y = np.array([[2,2], [3,3], [4,4]]) distance, path = fastdtw(x, y, dist=euclidean) print(distance)
