Computational Intelligence in Time Series Forecasting: Theory and Engineering Applications

Buy

Foresight can be crucial in process and production control, production-and-resources planning and in management decision making generally. Although forecasting the future from accumulated historical data has become a standard and reliable method in production and financial engineering, as well as in business and management, the use of time series analysis in the on-line milieu of most industrial plants has been more problematic because of the time and computational effort required.

The advent of intelligent computational technologies such as the neural network and the genetic algorithm promotes the efficient solution of on-line forecasting problems. Their most outstanding successes include:

  • prediction of nonlinear time series and the nonlinear combination of forecasts using neural networks;
  • prediction of chaotic time series and of output data for second-order nonlinear plant using fuzzy logic.

The power of intelligent technologies applied individually and in combination, has created advanced forecasting methodologies, exemplified in Computational Intellingence in Time Series Forecasting by particular systems and processes. The authors give a comprehensive exposition of the improvements on offer in quality, model building and predictive control, and the selection of appropriate tools from the plethora available using such examples as:

  • forecasting of electrical load and of output data for nonlinear plant with neuro-fuzzy networks;
  • temperature prediction and correction in pyrometer reading, tool-wear monitoring and materials property prediction using hybrid intelligent technologies;
  • evolutionary training of neuro-fuzzy networks by the use of genetic algorithms and prediction of chaotic time series;
  • isolated use of neural networks and fuzzy logic in the nonlinear combination of traditional forecasts of temperature series obtained from a pilot-scale chemical reactor with temporarily disconnected controller.

Application-oriented engineers in process control, manufacturing, the production industries and research centres will find much to interest them in Computational Intelligence in Time Series Forecasting and the book is suitable for industrial training purposes. It will also serve as valuable reference material for experimental researchers.

Pro Microsoft Speech Server 2007: Developing Speech Enabled Applications with .NET
Microsoft Speech Server is becoming increasingly popular. There are three primary components developers wanting to develop speech applications need to be familiar with: the Speech SDK, Telephony, and ASP.NET server controls. Each of these can be used independently, but in many cases, all three need to be used to build truly compelling applications....

The Great War as I Saw It
The Great War as I Saw It
It is said that Canada's birth as a nation took place on the battlefields of the Western Front in World War I. At places like Vimy Ridge and Passchendaele soldiers attacked from the trenches representing home provinces such as Quebec, Alberta, and Ontario, and returned as proud and triumphant Canadians. Canon Frederick George Scott was a...

Real-Time Image and Video Processing: From Research to Reality
This book presents an overview of the guidelines and strategies for transitioning an image or video processing algorithm from a research environment into a real-time constrained environment. Such guidelines and strategies are scattered in the literature of various disciplines including image processing, computer engineering, and software...
Infinitesimal Differences: Controversies between Leibniz and his Contemporaries
Infinitesimal Differences: Controversies between Leibniz and his Contemporaries
The essays offer a unified and comprehensive view of 17th century mathematical and metaphysical disputes over status of infinitesimals, particularly the question whether they were real or mere fictions. Leibnizs development of the calculus and his understanding of its metaphysical foundation are taken as both a point of departure and a...
