  1. Over the past two decades, machine learning and deep learning techniques for forecasting solar flares have generated great impact due to their ability to learn from a high dimensional data space. However, lack of high quality data from flaring phenomena becomes a constraining factor for such tasks. One of the methods to tackle this complex problem is utilizing trained classifiers with multivariate time series of magnetic field parameters. In this work, we compare the exceedingly popular multivariate time series classifiers applying deep learning techniques with commonly used machine learning classifiers (i.e., SVM). We intend to explore the role of data augmentation on time series oriented flare prediction techniques, specifically the deep learning-based ones. We utilize four time series data augmentation techniques and couple them with selected multivariate time series classifiers to understand how each of them affects the outcome. In the end, we show that the deep learning algorithms as well as augmentation techniques improve our classifiers performance. The resulting classifiers’ performance after augmentation outplayed the traditional flare forecasting techniques.
