To assign names for the input file and the output files, click the command and a dialog box will be presented. By default, the Predictor will select the following names:
Input file: example2a.txt
Output file: example2b.txt
The Precision-level determines the error of
each variable. You can change this variable by clicking the command and
under the prompt "Enter precision level", specify your number.
Real/+ Linear
Real/-- Linear
Real/0 Linear
Real/+ Exponential
Real/-- Exponential
Real/0 Exponential
x = 5.6 ^{+ 0.3} _{-
0.2} ,
i.e. the result is likely to be 5.6, but could be in the range [5.4, 5.9]; then
'0' prediction ==> 5.6
'+' prediction ==> 5.9
'--' prediction ==> 5.4.

x (n+1) = ( x (n) + y(n) + z(n) ) Mod 7;
y (n+1) = x ( n );
z (n+1 ) = y ( n) Mod 5;
The possible states are 000, 001, . . ., 100,
101, . . . , 775.
The training data is (first 70 rows):
1 0 0
1 1 0
2 1 1

x (n+1) = ( x (n) + y(n) + z(n) ) Mod 7;
y (n+1) = x ( n );
z (n+1 ) = y ( n) Mod 5; 60%
z (n+1 ) = ( y ( n)+ 1 ) Mod 5; 40%
s (n+1 ) = ( s(n) + 1 ) Mod 5; 60%
s (n+1 ) = ( s(n) + 2 ) Mod 5; 40%
t (n+1 ) = s ( n) Mod 3;
Each state can go to 4 different states with
the four respective probabilities: 36%, 24%, 24%, and 16%. The possible
states are 00000, 00001, . . ., 10000, 10001, . . . , 77553. The next simulated
configuration by a computer is :
6 6 1 0 1.
