Prediction of Сhaotic Time Series Many Steps ahead

V.Gromov, F. Baranov

Abstract. In this paper, using the example of the Lorentz series, we consider several new strategies for predicting many steps ahead. The use of generalized z-vectors, composed of inconsistent observations, made it possible, within the framework of prediction approaches based on clustering, to construct for each point for which it is necessary to obtain a forecast, a sufficiently large set of possible forecast values. The analysis of these sets was carried out in two aspects: first, the determination of the possibility of obtaining a single predicted value for such a set; secondly, the construction of a single predicted value in cases where it is possible. The concept of unpredictable points made it possible to formulate a new problem of predicting many steps ahead, which assumes that the algorithm has the ability to distinguish between predictable and unpredictable points and to make a forecast in predictable ones. It was found that with increasing number of steps for which it is necessary to obtain a predicted value, the number of unpredictable points increases, while the error in the predicted points does not exceed a certain threshold value. The approaches proposed in this work to solving the problem of multistep prediction in this formulation made it possible to obtain predicted values at some points beyond the prediction horizon.

Keywords: chaotic time series, prediction many steps ahead, prediction based on clustering, predictable and unpredictable points, prediction horizon.

Calligraphy and Applied Aspects of Handwritten Text Processing

N. Gruzdeva

Abstract: Important aspects of the evolution of handwriting are described in this article on the example of calligraphic writing, taking into consideration the aspect of tracing manuscript. Key points of handwriting’s digital representation are contemplated and an analysis of the possibility for the hardware reproduction of handwriting is carried out in consideration of textual and descriptive constituents. In this article we suggest a hypothesis that handwriting is no more the confirmation of the authorship and can be computer-assisted repeated and emulated. In that context, authenticity of any handwriting is in question, and that offers great opportunities for criminalistics and development of new technologies for personal identification.

S. Zapechnikov

Abstract. The article deals with the problems of cryptographic protection of data processing. This is a set of novel techniques allowing to process private information without disclosing it to persons engaged in processing. We review important building blocks for cryptographic protection of data processing, such as zero-knowledge proofs, secure multi-party computations and homomorphic encryption. Often, big data processing includes data mining and machine learning algorithms, so privacy-preserved machine learning is very important task. The concept of differential privacy is analyzed which is the basis for privacy-preserving machine learning and some other cryptographic schemes. It is noted that one of the main applications of such security tools is the creation of personalized information services, which opens up new opportunities for business and reduces the risks of unauthorized access to personal data.
