Abstract: The aim of this paper is to discuss the use of Haar scattering networks, which is a very simple architecture that naturally supports a large number of stacked layers, yet with very few parameters, in a relatively broad set of pattern recognition problems, including regression and classification tasks. This architecture, basically, consists of stacking convolutional filters, that can be thought as a generalization of Haar wavelets, followed by nonlinear operators which aim to extract symmetries and invariances that are later fed in a classification/regression algorithm. We show that good results can be obtained with the proposed method for both kind of tasks. We outperformed the best available algorithms in 4 out of 18 important data classification problems, and obtained a more robust performance than ARIMA and ETS time series methods in regression problems for data with invariances and symmetries, with desirable features, such as possibility to evaluate parameter stability and easy structural assessment.
