Conformal Prediction Bands for Two-Dimensional Functional Time Series

  title={Conformal Prediction Bands for Two-Dimensional Functional Time Series},
  author={Niccolo Ajroldi and Jacopo Diquigiovanni and Matteo Fontana and Simone Vantini},
Conformal Prediction (CP) is a versatile nonparametric framework used to quantify uncertainty in prediction problems. In this work, we provide an extension of such method to the case of time series of functions defined on a bivariate domain, by proposing for the first time a distribution-free technique which can be applied to time-evolving surfaces. In order to obtain meaningful and efficient prediction regions, CP must be coupled with an accurate forecasting algorithm, for this reason, we extend… 



On the Prediction of Stationary Functional Time Series

The practical applicability is enhanced through the introduction of a novel functional final prediction error model selection criterion that allows for an automatic determination of the lag structure and the dimensionality of the model.

A Note on Bivariate Smoothing for Two-Dimensional Functional Data

The usefulness of the bivariate smoothing approach to several real datasets, including applications to electricity demand, is illustrated, with results from simulation studies showing that these methods perform very well in practice.

Curve Forecasting by Functional Autoregression

The Importance of Being a Band: Finite-Sample Exact Distribution-Free Prediction Sets for Functional Data

This work proposes a new nonparametric approach in the field of Conformal Prediction based on a new family of nonconformity measures inducing conformal predictors able to create closed-form finite-sample valid or exact prediction sets under very minimal distributional assumptions.

Weakly dependent functional data

Functional data often arise from measurements on fine time grids and are obtained by separating an almost continuous time record into natural consecutive intervals, for example, days. The functions

Empirical properties of forecasts with the functional autoregressive model

An extensive empirical study based on simulated and real data reveals that predictors of the form Psi (X_n) are practically optimal in a sense that their prediction errors are comparable with those of the infeasible perfect predictor Ψ(Xn).

Testing stationarity of functional time series

Exact and Robust Conformal Inference Methods for Predictive Machine Learning With Dependent Data

This proposal is developed as a randomization method and accounts for potential serial dependence by including block structures in the permutation scheme, which retains the exact, model-free validity when the data are i.i.d. or more generally exchangeable.
