COURSE OVERVIEW


Time Series analysis is a statistical method that deals with how data values change over time. The applications of time series are vast ranging from predicting asset prices over time to understanding how weather patterns have changed over time. The key to time series analysis is attempting to understand how a variable changes over specific time periods and intervals.

In this training, participants will obtain an overview of times series models and how to use them to solve real-world problems. The content includes testing and fixed common statistical problems such as serial correlation, visualizing time series data, testing for stationarity, and selecting model parameters. The course ends with a hands-on project that effectively bridges the covered material together into a unified story.

Attendees can use either a Mac or Windows computer for this workshop.

Course Specific Questions


Do I need experience with Python programming and data science to join this course?

Yes. You must have prior Python programming experience and a core data science foundation before taking this course. The most efficient way to obtain both is to enroll in our Introduction to Data Science course.

How is this course different from Introduction to Data Science?

This course is focused purely on the creation and evaluation of time series models. Classification, clustering, and other models discussed in Introduction to Data Science are not covered in this course.

How is this course different from Machine Learning Classification?

This course is focused purely on the creation and evaluation of time series models. Classification, clustering, and other models discussed in Introduction to Data Science are not covered in this course.

Do I have the right laptop for this course?

You will need a PC (Windows Vista or newer), Mac (OS X 10.7 or newer), or Linux (Ubuntu, RedHat and others; CentOS 5+). Please contact us if you are planning to use a different setup for this course.

Do I need to install software prior to the class?

Yes, you will need to download and install free Python software on your laptop. In case you are planning on using a company laptop, please make sure that you have the necessary rights to install the tools. We will send out detailed information on the download and installation procedures a few days before the course starts.
