Time Series Analysis & Forecasting
4 March, 2024 – Virtual
From financial data to resource planning, website visitors to measurement monitoring, time-series data surrounds us. But how can you know what the future holds? This two-day course empowers you to go beyond “spotting trends” to making data-driven business forecasts.
09:00 – 13:00
What will you learn?
After the training, you will be able to:
Extract insights from time series data, including trends and patterns.
Interpret and model seasonality in time series data.
Build forecasting models to make predictions.
Forecast at scale with Prophet.
Time Series Analysis
- Effectively deal with timestamps and formatting with Pandas
- Master fundamental time series analysis techniques with aggregations
- Quickly identify trends in the data with rolling averages and various smoothing techniques
Forecasting & Modeling
- Decompose time series data into trends, seasonality, non-cyclical components, and residuals
- Extrapolate current dynamics into the future with various time series models such as ARIMA and LSTMs
- Explicitly model trends, seasonality, and holiday effects with Prophet
This program focuses on time series analysis using Pandas in Python. It covers key topics including timestamp features, aggregations, rolling averages, decomposition, and modeling with scikit-learn and Prophet.
- Timestamp features in Pandas
- Rolling averages & smoothing
- Error-trend-seasonality decomposition
- Modeling time series with scikit-learn
- Modeling time series with Prophet
Who is it for?
This course is ideal for Data Scientists with experience with data wrangling, Pandas, and Machine Learning who want to expand their skillset by moving from static to dynamic time-dependent data sets. Want to become more productive and empowered in analyzing and forecasting using time-series data? Then this course is for you!
To ensure maximum benefit from this course, participants should have at least a year of work experience with Pandas, Scikit-learn, and Prophet.
