Book Description

We live in a serendipitous era where the explosion in the quantum of data collected and renewed interest in data-driven techniques like machine learning (ML) has changed the landscape of analytics and with it time series forecasting. This book attempts to take you beyond the commonly used classical statistical methods like ARIMA and introduce to you the latest techniques from the world of ML.

The book is a comprehensive guide to analyzing, visualizing, and creating state-of-the-art forecasting systems, complete with common topics like ML and deep learning (DL), and rarely touched upon topics like global forecasting models, cross-validation strategies, and forecast metrics. We start off with the basics of data handling and visualization and classical statistical methods and very soon move on to ML and DL models for time series forecasting.

By the end of the book, which is filled with industry-tested tips and tricks, you will have mastery over time series forecasting and will have acquired enough skills to tackle problems in the real world.
