Using repeated quantum measurements as a guiding physical example, I will introduce the notion of entropy production for invariant measures on the one-sided shift. Then, I will present recent results on a related estimation problem. Informally, this is an attempt at answering the following question: does a typical sequence of outcomes carry a signature of the irreversibility of the stochastic process generating those outcomes? This is based on joint works (some still in progress) with G. Cristadoro, N. Cunéo, M. Degli Esposti and V. Jaksic.
