About this video

Time Series Analysis allows us to analyze data that is generated over a period of time and has sequential interdependencies between the observations. This video describes special mathematical tricks and techniques that are geared towards exploring the internal structures of time series data and generating powerful descriptive and predictive insights. Also, the tutorial is full of real-life time series examples and their analyses using cutting-edge solutions developed in Python. The video starts with a descriptive analysis to create insightful visualizations of internal structures such as trend, seasonality, and autocorrelation. Next, the statistical methods of dealing with autocorrelation and non-stationary time series are described. This is followed by exponential smoothing to produce meaningful insights from noisy time series data. At this point, we shift the focus towards predictive analysis and introduce autoregressive models such as ARMA and ARIMA for time series forecasting. Later, powerful deep learning methods are presented to develop accurate forecasting models for complex time series. All the topics are illustrated with real-life problem scenarios and their solutions by best-practice implementations in Python.

Style and Approach

This course takes viewers from basic to advanced time series analysis in a very practical way, and with real-world use cases.

Video is a walk-through of the textbook examples, not much use in isolation but helpful when used with the book.
Awesome deal on quite a few quality textbooks and lectures! Well worth the money, contains quality literature that's very helpful and easy to read.
The course is taught very mechanic. This course is not helpful either you don't know machine learning & its algorithms or python. In the end, you learn nothing! Neither you python knowledge is improved, neither you learn any machine learning algorithm. There are very few comparisons of different algorithms and the reasoning behind them and when you choose one instead of another.
