The Global Forecasting Model is a newer paradigm of Forecasting. He shares insights of a book on forecasting titled “Modern Time series forecasting with Python”.

Points covered:

  • Introduction of Time Series.
  • Machine Learning for Time Series.
  • Global Forecasting Models(GFMs)
  • Strategies for improving GFMs

Time series: A time series is a collection of well-defined data observations obtained through repeated measurements over time.

He covers the basics of the Time series and demonstrates the same with real-life examples. How can the Time series relate to Machine Learning? Will forecasting work with Artificial Intelligence?
