comment Proving that a function is not a OWF (One-way-function)
@Pinocchio, yes, for a random $x$. Yes, my answer does not depend upon how $f$ is constructed; it applies regardless.

Two candidates come to mind. (1) Find an input to scrypt that makes the first 20 bits of its output all zeros. Verification is now pretty cheap. (2) Use timelock puzzles. They admit a very large ratio between the time to solve the puzzle vs the time to construct the puzzle (or to verify the solution).

jimmy, Have you done a literature search? That's the obvious first step.

comment ML/NN Cryptanalysis
My advice would be to stick to one question per question. Here you have 3 separate question, all concatenated into the same question box. That isn't a good fit for this site; a good question should have a single answer. (Actually, the 3rd one -- "any other tricks..." -- is also not a good fit, as it is too unfocused.) Also, we expect you to do some research on your own and tell us what you've tried; I don't see that in the question at present. Finally, I suggest starting from the goal (drive in a nail) and ask for a solution, rather than starting with a hammer and looking for nails.

comment Help in understanding exactly how lattices used as one way functions for hashing
you wrote "I just wish I could find some text which explained this in English rather than symbols". I'm afraid you're not likely to be able to understand this without mathematics (i.e., symbols). I don't mean to be rude, but you might want to consider the possibility that you do not have the necessary mathematical background to understand the answers to the questions you posed. Perhaps you are better off either focusing on strengthening your math skills, or moving to a different topic where you do have the preparation.
