ℱ-EBM: Energy Based Learning of Functional Data [article]

Jen Ning Lim, Sebastian Vollmer, Lorenz Wolf, Andrew Duncan
2022 arXiv   pre-print
We demonstrate the efficacy of our proposed approach for modelling a range of datasets, including data collected from Standard and Poor's 500 (S\&P) and UK National grid.  ...  Firstly, training data is often not evaluated along a fixed set of points. Secondly, steps must be taken to control the behaviour of the model between evaluation points, to mitigate overfitting.  ...  We demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed approach using both synthetic and real data-sets.  ...

2017 Journal of Communications  
Experiments on real and synthetic datasets have shown that the performance of the designed model is excellent when compared to two state-of-the-art models.  ...  Unlike many prediction models, the designed model is noise tolerant, and can thus provide high accuracy even with data that contains noise and inaccuracies such as GPS mobility data.  ...  However, real-life trajectory data such as GPS trajectories often contain location errors or miss data points, which may result in performing incorrect predictions.  ...

Identifying Stops and Moves in WiFi Tracking Data

Cristian Chilipirea, Mitra Baratchi, Ciprian Dobre, Maarten van Steen
2018 Sensors  
However, even with the increase in accuracy, the problem, of separating traces in periods of stops and movements, remains similar to the one we encountered for WiFi tracking.  ...  WiFi tracking is a scalable solution that has gained attention recently. This method permits unobtrusive tracking of large crowds, at a reduced cost.  ...  An important step in simplifying traces is to partition the data into stop and move periods. We have selected three algorithms that can partition traces generated using GPS data.  ...
