This looks better than the baseline.
Rick says:. Also, in a month-wise boxplot, the months of December and January clearly has higher drug sales, which can be attributed to the holiday discounts season. While exponential smoothing methods do not make any assumptions about correlations between successive values of the time series, in some cases you can make a better predictive model by taking correlations in the data into account. Thus, we can try to estimate the trend component of this time series by smoothing using a simple moving average. So, a time series may be imagined as a combination of the trend, seasonality and the error terms. Future climate risk from compound events.
Now that you have seen the basics, let's move on to part two, where you will work with a multivariate time series. The original dataset contains fourteen features. For simplicity, this section considers only three of the original fourteen. The features used are air temperature, atmospheric pressure, and air density.
As mentioned, the first step will be to normalize the dataset using the mean and standard deviation of the training data. In a single step setup, the model learns to predict a single point in the future based on some history provided.
The below function performs the same windowing task as below, however, here it samples the past observation based on the step size given. In this tutorial, the network is shown data from the last five 5 days, i. The sampling is done every one hour since a drastic change is not expected within 60 minutes.
Thus, observation represent history of the last five days. For the single step prediction model, the label for a datapoint is the temperature 12 hours into the future.
A time series is a series of data points indexed (or listed or graphed) in time order . Methods for time series analysis may be divided into two classes. Time Series modeling is a powerful technique that acts as a gateway to 2. Dealing with a Multivariate Time Series – VAR. In this section, I will.
Now that the model is trained, let's make a few sample predictions. The model is given the history of three features over the past five days sampled every hour data-points , since the goal is to predict the temperature, the plot only displays the past temperature.
The prediction is made one day into the future hence the gap between the history and prediction. In a multi-step prediction model, given a past history, the model needs to learn to predict a range of future values. Thus, unlike a single step model, where only a single future point is predicted, a multi-step model predict a sequence of the future.
For the multi-step model, the training data again consists of recordings over the past five days sampled every hour. However, here, the model needs to learn to predict the temperature for the next 12 hours. Since an obversation is taken every 10 minutes, the output is 72 predictions. For this task, the dataset needs to be prepared accordingly, thus the first step is just to create it again, but with a different target window.
In this plot and subsequent similar plots, the history and the future data are sampled every hour. Since the task here is a bit more complicated than the previous task, the model now consists of two LSTM layers. Finally, since 72 predictions are made, the dense layer outputs 72 predictions. This tutorial was a quick introduction to time series forecasting using an RNN. You may now try to predict the stock market and become a billionaire.
