Time collection prediction with FNN-LSTM

Nowadays, we select up at the plan alluded to within the conclusion of the hot Deep attractors: The place deep studying meets
: make use of that very same solution to generate forecasts for
empirical time collection knowledge.

“That very same method,” which for conciseness, I’ll take the freedom of regarding as FNN-LSTM, is because of William Gilpin’s
2020 paper “Deep reconstruction of ordinary attractors from time collection” (Gilpin 2020).

In a nutshell, the issue addressed is as follows: A machine, identified or assumed to be nonlinear and extremely depending on
preliminary prerequisites, is noticed, leading to a scalar collection of measurements. The measurements aren’t simply – inevitably –
noisy, however as well as, they’re – at very best – a projection of a multidimensional state house onto a line.

Classically in nonlinear time collection research, such scalar collection of observations are augmented through supplementing, at each and every
cut-off date, not on time measurements of that very same collection – a method referred to as prolong coordinate embedding (Sauer, Yorke, and Casdagli 1991). For
instance, as an alternative of only a unmarried vector X1, we may have a matrix of vectors X1, X2, and X3, with X2 containing
the similar values as X1, however ranging from the 3rd remark, and X3, from the 5th. On this case, the prolong can be
2, and the embedding size, 3. More than a few theorems state that if those
parameters are selected adequately, it’s imaginable to reconstruct your complete state house. There’s a downside despite the fact that: The
theorems think that the dimensionality of the real state house is understood, which in lots of real-world programs, received’t be the

That is the place Gilpin’s concept is available in: Educate an autoencoder, whose intermediate illustration encapsulates the machine’s
attractor. No longer simply any MSE-optimized autoencoder despite the fact that. The latent illustration is regularized through false nearest
(FNN) loss, a method usually used with prolong coordinate embedding to resolve an good enough embedding size.
False neighbors are those that are shut in n-dimensional house, however considerably farther aside in n+1-dimensional house.
Within the aforementioned introductory submit, we confirmed how this
method allowed to reconstruct the attractor of the (artificial) Lorenz machine. Now, we wish to transfer directly to prediction.

We first describe the setup, together with fashion definitions, coaching procedures, and information preparation. Then, we let you know the way it


From reconstruction to forecasting, and branching out into the actual global

Within the earlier submit, we educated an LSTM autoencoder to generate a compressed code, representing the attractor of the machine.
As same old with autoencoders, the objective when coaching is equal to the enter, which means that total loss consisted of 2
parts: The FNN loss, computed at the latent illustration solely, and the mean-squared-error loss between enter and
output. Now for prediction, the objective is composed of long term values, as many as we need to expect. Put otherwise: The
structure remains the similar, however as an alternative of reconstruction we carry out prediction, in the usual RNN method. The place the standard RNN
setup would simply at once chain the required choice of LSTMs, we have now an LSTM encoder that outputs a (timestep-less) latent
code, and an LSTM decoder that ranging from that code, repeated as repeatedly as required, forecasts the desired choice of
long term values.

This in fact signifies that to guage forecast efficiency, we wish to examine towards an LSTM-only setup. That is precisely
what we’ll do, and comparability will change into attention-grabbing now not simply quantitatively, however qualitatively as neatly.

We carry out those comparisons at the 4 datasets Gilpin selected to show attractor reconstruction on observational
. Whilst all of those, as is obvious from the pictures
in that pocket book, showcase great attractors, we’ll see that now not they all are similarly suited for forecasting the usage of easy
RNN-based architectures – without or with FNN regularization. However even those who obviously call for a special way permit
for attention-grabbing observations as to the affect of FNN loss.

Type definitions and coaching setup

In all 4 experiments, we use the similar fashion definitions and coaching procedures, the one differing parameter being the
choice of timesteps used within the LSTMs (for causes that may change into glaring once we introduce the person datasets).

Each architectures have been selected to be simple, and about similar in choice of parameters – each mainly consist
of 2 LSTMs with 32 gadgets (n_recurrent shall be set to 32 for all experiments).


FNN-LSTM seems just about like within the earlier submit, excluding the truth that we cut up up the encoder LSTM into two, to uncouple
capability (n_recurrent) from maximal latent state dimensionality (n_latent, saved at 10 identical to earlier than).

Coaching is unchanged as neatly, excluding the truth that now, we regularly output latent variable variances along with
the losses. It’s because with FNN-LSTM, we have now to select an good enough weight for the FNN loss part. An “good enough
weight” is one the place the variance drops sharply after the primary n variables, with n concept to correspond to attractor
dimensionality. For the Lorenz machine mentioned within the earlier submit, that is how those variances seemed:

     V1       V2        V3        V4        V5        V6        V7        V8        V9       V10
 0.0739   0.0582   1.12e-6   3.13e-4   1.43e-5   1.52e-8   1.35e-6   1.86e-4   1.67e-4   4.39e-5

If we take variance as a trademark of significance, the primary two variables are obviously extra essential than the remainder. This
discovering well corresponds to “respectable” estimates of Lorenz attractor dimensionality. For instance, the correlation size
is estimated to lie round 2.05 (Grassberger and Procaccia 1983).

Thus, right here we have now the learning regimen:

train_step <- serve as(batch) {
  with (tf$GradientTape(chronic = TRUE) %as% tape, {
    code <- encoder(batch[[1]])
    prediction <- decoder(code)
    l_mse <- mse_loss(batch[[2]], prediction)
    l_fnn <- loss_false_nn(code)
    loss <- l_mse + fnn_weight * l_fnn
  encoder_gradients <-
    tape$gradient(loss, encoder$trainable_variables)
  decoder_gradients <-
    tape$gradient(loss, decoder$trainable_variables)
    encoder_gradients, encoder$trainable_variables
    decoder_gradients, decoder$trainable_variables

training_loop <- tf_function(autograph(serve as(ds_train) {
  for (batch in ds_train) {
  tf$print("Loss: ", train_loss$end result())
  tf$print("MSE: ", train_mse$end result())
  tf$print("FNN loss: ", train_fnn$end result())

mse_loss <-
  tf$keras$losses$MeanSquaredError(relief = tf$keras$losses$Aid$SUM)

train_loss <- tf$keras$metrics$Imply(title = 'train_loss')
train_fnn <- tf$keras$metrics$Imply(title = 'train_fnn')
train_mse <-  tf$keras$metrics$Imply(title = 'train_mse')

# fnn_multiplier will have to be selected in my opinion in keeping with dataset
# that is the worth we used at the geyser dataset
fnn_multiplier <- 0.7
fnn_weight <- fnn_multiplier * nrow(x_train)/batch_size

# studying charge might also want adjustment
optimizer <- optimizer_adam(lr = 1e-3)

for (epoch in 1:200) {
 cat("Epoch: ", epoch, " -----------n")
 test_batch <- as_iterator(ds_test) %>% iter_next()
 encoded <- encoder(test_batch[[1]]) 
 test_var <- tf$math$reduce_variance(encoded, axis = 0L)
 print(test_var %>% as.numeric() %>% spherical(5))

Directly to what we’ll use as a baseline for comparability.

Vanilla LSTM

This is the vanilla LSTM, stacking two layers, every, once more, of dimension 32. Dropout and recurrent dropout have been selected in my opinion
in keeping with dataset, as used to be the training charge.

lstm <- serve as(n_latent, n_timesteps, n_features, n_recurrent, dropout, recurrent_dropout,
                 optimizer = optimizer_adam(lr =  1e-3)) {
  fashion <- keras_model_sequential() %>%
      gadgets = n_recurrent,
      input_shape = c(n_timesteps, n_features),
      dropout = dropout, 
      recurrent_dropout = recurrent_dropout,
      return_sequences = TRUE
    ) %>% 
      gadgets = n_recurrent,
      dropout = dropout,
      recurrent_dropout = recurrent_dropout,
      return_sequences = TRUE
    ) %>% 
    time_distributed(layer_dense(gadgets = 1))
  fashion %>%
    bring together(
      loss = "mse",
      optimizer = optimizer

fashion <- lstm(n_latent, n_timesteps, n_features, n_hidden, dropout = 0.2, recurrent_dropout = 0.2)

Knowledge preparation

For all experiments, knowledge have been ready in the similar method.

In each and every case, we used the primary 10000 measurements to be had within the respective .pkl information equipped through Gilpin in his GitHub
. To save lots of on report dimension and now not rely on an exterior
knowledge supply, we extracted the ones first 10000 entries to .csv information downloadable at once from this weblog’s repo:

geyser <- obtain.report(

electrical energy <- obtain.report(
  "https://uncooked.githubusercontent.com/rstudio/ai-blog/grasp/doctors/posts/2020-07-20-fnn-lstm/knowledge/electrical energy.csv",
  "knowledge/electrical energy.csv")

ecg <- obtain.report(

mouse <- obtain.report(

Must you wish to have to get right of entry to your complete time collection (of significantly larger lengths), simply obtain them from Gilpin’s repo
and cargo them the usage of reticulate:

This is the information preparation code for the primary dataset, geyser – all different datasets have been handled the similar method.

# the primary 10000 measurements from the compilation equipped through Gilpin
geyser <- read_csv("geyser.csv", col_names = FALSE) %>% choose(X1) %>% pull() %>% unclass()

# standardize
geyser <- scale(geyser)

# varies in keeping with dataset; see under 
n_timesteps <- 60
batch_size <- 32

# develop into into [batch_size, timesteps, features] structure required through RNNs
gen_timesteps <- serve as(x, n_timesteps) {
                     serve as(i) {
                       get started <- i
                       finish <- i + n_timesteps - 1
                       out <- x[start:end]
  ) %>%
    na.put out of your mind()

n <- 10000
educate <- gen_timesteps(geyser[1:(n/2)], 2 * n_timesteps)
take a look at <- gen_timesteps(geyser[(n/2):n], 2 * n_timesteps) 

dim(educate) <- c(dim(educate), 1)
dim(take a look at) <- c(dim(take a look at), 1)

# cut up into enter and goal  
x_train <- educate[ , 1:n_timesteps, , drop = FALSE]
y_train <- educate[ , (n_timesteps + 1):(2*n_timesteps), , drop = FALSE]

x_test <- take a look at[ , 1:n_timesteps, , drop = FALSE]
y_test <- take a look at[ , (n_timesteps + 1):(2*n_timesteps), , drop = FALSE]

# create tfdatasets
ds_train <- tensor_slices_dataset(listing(x_train, y_train)) %>%
  dataset_shuffle(nrow(x_train)) %>%

ds_test <- tensor_slices_dataset(listing(x_test, y_test)) %>%

Now we’re in a position to have a look at how forecasting is going on our 4 datasets.


Geyser dataset

Other people operating with time collection can have heard of Outdated Trustworthy, a geyser in
Wyoming, US that has regularly been erupting each and every 44 mins to 2 hours for the reason that 12 months 2004. For the subset of information
Gilpin extracted,

geyser_train_test.pkl corresponds to detrended temperature readings from the primary runoff pool of the Outdated Trustworthy geyser
in Yellowstone Nationwide Park, downloaded from the GeyserTimes database. Temperature measurements
get started on April 13, 2015 and happen in one-minute increments.

Like we stated above, geyser.csv is a subset of those measurements, comprising the primary 10000 knowledge issues. To make a choice an
good enough timestep for the LSTMs, we check out the collection at more than a few resolutions:

Geyer dataset. Top: First 1000 observations. Bottom: Zooming in on the first 200.

Determine 1: Geyer dataset. Most sensible: First 1000 observations. Backside: Zooming in at the first 200.

It kind of feels just like the habits is periodic with a length of about 40-50; a timestep of 60 thus looked like a just right take a look at.

Having educated each FNN-LSTM and the vanilla LSTM for 200 epochs, we first check out the variances of the latent variables on
the take a look at set. The worth of fnn_multiplier comparable to this run used to be 0.7.

test_batch <- as_iterator(ds_test) %>% iter_next()
encoded <- encoder(test_batch[[1]]) %>%
  as.array() %>%

encoded %>% summarise_all(var)
   V1     V2        V3          V4       V5       V6       V7       V8       V9      V10
0.258 0.0262 0.0000627 0.000000600 0.000533 0.000362 0.000238 0.000121 0.000518 0.000365

There’s a drop in significance between the primary two variables and the remainder; then again, not like within the Lorenz machine, V1 and
V2 variances additionally vary through an order of magnitude.

Now, it’s attention-grabbing to check prediction mistakes for each fashions. We’re going to make a remark that may elevate
via to all 3 datasets to return.

Maintaining the suspense for some time, here’s the code used to compute per-timestep prediction mistakes from each fashions. The
similar code shall be used for all different datasets.

calc_mse <- serve as(df, y_true, y_pred) {
  (sum((df[[y_true]] - df[[y_pred]])^2))/nrow(df)

get_mse <- serve as(test_batch, prediction) {
  comp_df <- 
      test_batch[[2]][, , 1] %>%
        as.array()) %>%
        rename_with(serve as(title) paste0(title, "_true")) %>%
        prediction[, , 1] %>%
          as.array()) %>%
          rename_with(serve as(title) paste0(title, "_pred")))
  mse <- purrr::map(1:dim(prediction)[2],
                        serve as(varno)
                                   paste0("X", varno, "_true"),
                                   paste0("X", varno, "_pred"))) %>%

prediction_fnn <- decoder(encoder(test_batch[[1]]))
mse_fnn <- get_mse(test_batch, prediction_fnn)

prediction_lstm <- fashion %>% expect(ds_test)
mse_lstm <- get_mse(test_batch, prediction_lstm)

mses <- knowledge.body(timestep = 1:n_timesteps, fnn = mse_fnn, lstm = mse_lstm) %>%
  accumulate(key = "kind", price = "mse", -timestep)

ggplot(mses, aes(timestep, mse, colour = kind)) +
  geom_point() +
  scale_color_manual(values = c("#00008B", "#3CB371")) +
  theme_classic() +
  theme(legend.place = "none") 

And here’s the real comparability. Something particularly jumps to the attention: FNN-LSTM forecast error is considerably decrease for
preliminary timesteps, initially, for the first actual prediction, which from this graph we think to be lovely just right!

Per-timestep prediction error as obtained by FNN-LSTM and a vanilla stacked LSTM. Green: LSTM. Blue: FNN-LSTM.

Determine 2: In step with-timestep prediction error as bought through FNN-LSTM and a vanilla stacked LSTM. Inexperienced: LSTM. Blue: FNN-LSTM.

Curiously, we see “jumps” in prediction error, for FNN-LSTM, between the first actual forecast and the second one, after which
between the second one and the following ones, reminding of the equivalent jumps in variable significance for the latent code! After the
first ten timesteps, vanilla LSTM has stuck up with FNN-LSTM, and we received’t interpret additional building of the losses founded
on only a unmarried run’s output.

As an alternative, let’s check out precise predictions. We randomly select sequences from the take a look at set, and ask each FNN-LSTM and vanilla
LSTM for a forecast. The similar process shall be adopted for the opposite datasets.

given <- knowledge.body(as.array(tf$concat(listing(
  test_batch[[1]][, , 1], test_batch[[2]][, , 1]
axis = 1L)) %>% t()) %>%
  add_column(kind = "given") %>%
  add_column(num = 1:(2 * n_timesteps))

fnn <- knowledge.body(as.array(prediction_fnn[, , 1]) %>%
                    t()) %>%
  add_column(kind = "fnn") %>%

                     t()) %>%
  add_column(kind = "lstm") %>%
  add_column(num = (n_timesteps + 1):(2 * n_timesteps))

compare_preds_df <- bind_rows(given, lstm, fnn)

plots <- 
  purrr::map(pattern(1:dim(compare_preds_df)[2], 16),
             serve as(v) {
               ggplot(compare_preds_df, aes(num, .knowledge[[paste0("X", v)]], colour = kind)) +

                 scale_color_manual(values = c("#00008B", "#DB7093", "#3CB371"))

plot_grid(plotlist = plots, ncol = 4)

Listed here are 16 random selections of predictions at the take a look at set. The bottom reality is displayed in crimson; blue forecasts are from
FNN-LSTM, inexperienced ones from vanilla LSTM.

60-step ahead predictions from FNN-LSTM (blue) and vanilla LSTM (green) on randomly selected sequences from the test set. Pink: the ground truth.

Determine 3: 60-step forward predictions from FNN-LSTM (blue) and vanilla LSTM (inexperienced) on randomly decided on sequences from the take a look at set. Crimson: the bottom reality.

What we think from the mistake inspection comes true: FNN-LSTM yields a lot better predictions for fast
continuations of a given collection.

Let’s transfer directly to the second one dataset on our listing.

Electrical energy dataset

It is a dataset on energy intake, aggregated over 321 other families and fifteen-minute-intervals.

electricity_train_test.pkl corresponds to reasonable energy intake through 321 Portuguese families between 2012 and 2014, in
gadgets of kilowatts ate up in fifteen minute increments. This dataset is from the UCI system studying

Right here, we see an overly common development:

Electricity dataset. Top: First 2000 observations. Bottom: Zooming in on 500 observations, skipping the very beginning of the series.

Determine 4: Electrical energy dataset. Most sensible: First 2000 observations. Backside: Zooming in on 500 observations, skipping the very starting of the collection.

With such common habits, we straight away attempted to expect a better choice of timesteps (120) – and didn’t need to retract
in the back of that aspiration.

For an fnn_multiplier of 0.5, latent variable variances appear to be this:

V1          V2            V3       V4       V5            V6       V7         V8      V9     V10
0.390 0.000637 0.00000000288 1.48e-10 2.10e-11 0.00000000119 6.61e-11 0.00000115 1.11e-4 1.40e-4

We surely see a pointy drop already after the primary variable.

How do prediction mistakes examine at the two architectures?

Determine 5: In step with-timestep prediction error as bought through FNN-LSTM and a vanilla stacked LSTM. Inexperienced: LSTM. Blue: FNN-LSTM.

Right here, FNN-LSTM plays higher over a protracted vary of timesteps, however once more, the adaptation is maximum visual for fast
predictions. Will an inspection of exact predictions verify this view?

60-step ahead predictions from FNN-LSTM (blue) and vanilla LSTM (green) on randomly selected sequences from the test set. Pink: the ground truth.

Determine 6: 60-step forward predictions from FNN-LSTM (blue) and vanilla LSTM (inexperienced) on randomly decided on sequences from the take a look at set. Crimson: the bottom reality.

It does! If truth be told, forecasts from FNN-LSTM are very spectacular on all time scales.

Now that we’ve noticed the simple and predictable, let’s way the bizarre and tough.

ECG dataset

Says Gilpin,

ecg_train.pkl and ecg_test.pkl correspond to ECG measurements for 2 other sufferers, taken from the PhysioNet QT

How do those glance?

ECG dataset. Top: First 1000 observations. Bottom: Zooming in on the first 400 observations.

Determine 7: ECG dataset. Most sensible: First 1000 observations. Backside: Zooming in at the first 400 observations.

To the layperson that I’m, those don’t glance just about as common as anticipated. First experiments confirmed that each architectures
aren’t able to coping with a excessive choice of timesteps. In each and every take a look at, FNN-LSTM carried out higher for the first actual

This could also be the case for n_timesteps = 12, the general take a look at (after 120, 60 and 30). With an fnn_multiplier of 1, the
latent variances bought amounted to the next:

     V1        V2          V3        V4         V5       V6       V7         V8         V9       V10
  0.110  1.16e-11     3.78e-9 0.0000992    9.63e-9  4.65e-5  1.21e-4    9.91e-9    3.81e-9   2.71e-8

There is an opening between the primary variable and all different ones; however now not a lot variance is defined through V1 both.

Excluding the first actual prediction, vanilla LSTM displays decrease forecast mistakes this time; then again, we need to upload that this
used to be now not persistently noticed when experimenting with different timestep settings.

Determine 8: In step with-timestep prediction error as bought through FNN-LSTM and a vanilla stacked LSTM. Inexperienced: LSTM. Blue: FNN-LSTM.

Taking a look at precise predictions, each architectures carry out very best when a endurance forecast is good enough – in truth, they
produce one even if it’s now not.

Determine 9: 60-step forward predictions from FNN-LSTM (blue) and vanilla LSTM (inexperienced) on randomly decided on sequences from the take a look at set. Crimson: the bottom reality.

In this dataset, we unquestionably would wish to discover different architectures higher in a position to seize the presence of excessive and low
frequencies within the knowledge, reminiscent of aggregate fashions. However – have been we pressured to stick with this sort of, and may do a
one-step-ahead, rolling forecast, we’d pass with FNN-LSTM.

Talking of combined frequencies – we haven’t noticed the extremes but …

Mouse dataset

“Mouse,” that’s spike charges recorded from a mouse thalamus.

mouse.pkl A time collection of spiking charges for a neuron in a mouse thalamus. Uncooked spike knowledge used to be bought from
CRCNS and processed with the authors’ code with a view to generate a
spike charge time collection.

Mouse dataset. Top: First 2000 observations. Bottom: Zooming in on the first 500 observations.

Determine 10: Mouse dataset. Most sensible: First 2000 observations. Backside: Zooming in at the first 500 observations.

Clearly, this dataset shall be very arduous to expect. How, after “lengthy” silence, have you learnt {that a} neuron goes to fireplace?

As same old, we check out latent code variances (fnn_multiplier used to be set to 0.4):

Whilst it’s simple to procure the ones estimates, the usage of, as an example, the
nonlinearTseries bundle explicitly modeled after practices
described in Kantz & Schreiber’s vintage (Kantz and Schreiber 2004), we don’t wish to extrapolate from our tiny pattern of datasets, and depart
such explorations and analyses to additional posts, and/or the reader’s ventures :-). In the end, we are hoping you loved
the demonstration of sensible usability of an way that within the previous submit, used to be basically offered on the subject of its
conceptual attractivity.

Thank you for studying!
