High-dimensional Multivariate Time Series Forecasting in IoT Applications using Embedding Non-stationary Fuzzy Time Series [article]

Hugo Vinicius Bitencourt, Frederico Gadelha Guimarães
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Therefore, methods that are capable of high-dimensional non-stationary time series are of great value in IoT applications.  ...  Unfortunately, FTS encounters difficulties when dealing with data sets of many variables and scenarios with concept drift.  ...  The "concept drift" may deteriorate the accuracy of model prediction over time, which requires permanent adaptation strategies.  ...

Jessica Fridrich
2006 Proceeding of the 8th workshop on Multimedia and security - MM&Sec '06  
We interpret the results and formulate several "rules of thumb" that should improve steganographic security.  ...  We assume that each element of the cover image is assigned a scalar value that measures the impact of making an embedding change at that pixel (e.g., the embedding distortion).  ...  that is applied to pixels to embed a message, and (3) the selection channel, which is a rule according to which pixels are selected for embedding.  ...
