    An AI Based Cryptocurrency Trading System

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Yasrebi, Amir Abbas (Author) ; Khayyat, Amir Ali Akbar (Supervisor)
    Cryptocurrencies are not only regarded as a trustworthy method of financial transaction validated by a decentralized cryptographic system as opposed to a centralized authority, but also as one of the most popular and lucrative forms of trade and investing. Predicting the price of a cryptocurrency is a challenging topic in time-series research. Its intricacy is due to the volatility and large swings of cryptocurrencies' price. The emergence of brand-new cryptocurrencies, which might present a profitable trading opportunity but lack sufficient historical data for technical analysis, prompted us to develop a trading strategy that could be applied universally. The forecast of the next timestep's... 

    Feature Extraction for Financial Markets’ Transactions

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Karimi, Afshin (Author) ; Manzuri Shalmani, Mohammad Taghi (Supervisor)
    The use of machine learning and deep learning tools to predict the future behavior of trends in massive data requires the extraction and creation of the eigenvector for the chosen model in the problem. It should be noted that simply by increasing the number of features, it cannot be expected that the learning model will have a higher efficiency. Rather, the quality and importance of the features in the field under study should be carefully considered. Topics such as data redundancy, data correlation, the amount of information in the data, distorted data, outliers, etc. are important steps in improving the dataset and creating a feature vector for training the learning model.

    Chaos Control in Continuous Time Systems Using Delayed Phase Space Constructed by Takens’ Embedding Theory

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Kaveh, Hojjat (Author) ; Salarieh, Hassan (Supervisor)
    This research has dedicated to study the control of chaos when the system dynamics is unknown and there are some limitations on measuring states. There are many chaotic systems with these features occurring in many biological, economical and mechanical systems. The usual chaos control methods do not have the ability to present a systematic control method for these kinds of systems. To fulfill these strict conditions we have employed Takens embedding theory which guarantees the preservation of topological characteristics of the chaotic attractor under an embedding named "Takens transformation". Takens transformation just needs time series of one of the measurable states. This transformation...

    An Access Control System for Time Series Data in NoSQL Databases

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Noury, Amir (Author) ; Amini, Morteza (Supervisor)
    An important class of applications which have been rapidly growing recently is the one that create and use time series data. These types of data sets are ordered based on the timestamps associated to their data items. In practice, traditional relational databases are unable to satisfy the requirements of these data sets; however, NoSQL databases with column-wide data structure are appropriate infrastructure for them. These databases are very efficient in read and write operations (especially for time series data, which are ordered) and are able to store unstructured data. Time series data may contain valuable and sensitive information; hence, they should be protected from the information...

    Development of Macro-Level Crash Prediction Models, using Advanced Statistical and Machine Learning Methods

    , Ph.D. Dissertation Sharif University of Technology Mohammadpour, Iman (Author) ; Nassiri, Habibollah (Supervisor)
    Road casualty is the fifth leading cause of death in Iran. To adopt proper countermeasures there is a need to evaluate the consequences of the implemented policies. Despite the development of crash time series models, these methods have not been in accordance with the multivariate, seasonal, and non-linear nature of crash data. On the other hand, the interpretable crash causal analysis frameworks are descriptive and they lack predictive power. Moreover, the unobserved homogeneity between observations has been widely overlooked in the crash causal analysis literature. This thesis introduces a novel causal analysis methodology by combining the interpretability and prediction power of the...

    2)Capital market level
    3)Industry level
    4)Company level
    The first level studies effects of macroeconomics variables on P/E ratio. At this level we use variables such as economic growth, inflation, exchange rate, and etc.The next level uses capital market variables such as market volume, and IPO information.The third level that we study in this research is industry level. Stocks of an industry generally behave similar, because they have common advantages and disadvantages, thus industry is an effective factor on P/E ratio.The last level studies financial statements and internal features of a... 

    Optimization of Support Vector Regression Parameters Using Firefly Algorithm

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Ghanbari, Mohammad Reza (Author) ; Mahdavi-Amiri, Nezameddin (Supervisor)
    Support vector regression (SVR) in the field of machine learning attracted much attention because of its attractive features and high efficiency for high-dimensional and nonlinear data. Although support vector regression has shown to be very effective for prediction problems, it is necessary to adjust the parameters contained therein to obtain the desired output with error rates. In the past, this was done manually, by trial and error. Over time and by development of optimization algorithms, one of the newest methods to solve such problems is the meta-heuristic optimization algorithms. Therefore, in this thesis, we use the firefly optimization algorithm, which is a population-based...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Ghafourian Akbarzadeh, Mahnoosh (Author) ; Manzuri, Mohammad Taghi (Supervisor)
    Crop classification is one of the most important applications of remote sensing in agriculture. Knowing what crops are on the farm is invaluable both on a micro and macro scale. For example, this information can be used to design and imple- ment agricultural policies, product management and ensure food security. Also, this information can be used as a prerequisite for implementing other programs at the farm scale, such as monitoring and detecting anomalies during the crop growth cycle. Most of the studies in this field are focused on the optical data of the Sentinel-2 satel- lite, but the optical data are vulnerable to atmospheric conditions, and on the other hand, there is valuable...

    Short-term Load Forecasting

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Shokuhian, Hamideh (Author) ; Fatemi Ardestani, Farshad (Supervisor) ; Barakchian, Mahdi (Supervisor)
    In this thesis we are going to forecast the hourly consumption of the electricity over the country with two models and then, combine them. The first model decomposes the consumption to a deterministic trend and a stochastic residual. The second one assumes that the trend part is also stochastic.Once the consumption is being predicted separately by the models, in the second part of the thesis, we will combine the results to get a final prediction. This prediction is going to be compared with the load forecast of the Dispatching Unit of the electricity network as a base model. We are going to answer two important questions: firstly, does combining the models give a better prediction or not,...
