Machine Learning for Time Series Forecasting with Python
Machine Learning for Time Series Forecasting with Python is an incisive and straightforward examination of one of the most crucial elements of decision-making in finance, marketing, education, and healthcare: time series modeling.
Despite the centrality of time series forecasting, few business analysts are familiar with the power or utility of applying machine learning to time series modeling. Author Francesca Lazzeri, a distinguished machine learning scientist and economist, corrects that deficiency by providing readers with comprehensive and approachable explanation and treatment of the application of machine learning to time series forecasting.
Written for readers who have little to no experience in time series forecasting or machine learning, the book comprehensively covers all the topics necessary to:
Understand time series forecasting concepts, such as stationarity, horizon, trend, and seasonality
Prepare time series data for modeling
Evaluate time series forecasting models’ performance and accuracy
Understand when to use neural networks instead of traditional time series models in time series forecasting
