How to Predict Room Occupancy Based on Environmental Factors

Small computers, such as Arduino devices, can be used within buildings to record environmental variables from which simple and useful properties can be predicted. One example is predicting whether a room or rooms are occupied based on environmental measures such as temperature, humidity, and related measures. This is a type of common time series classification […]

Predict Whether a Persons Eyes are Open or Closed Using Brain Waves

A Case Study in How to Avoid Methodological Errors when Evaluating Machine Learning Methods for Time Series Forecasting. Evaluating machine learning models on time series forecasting problems is challenging. It is easy to make a small error in the framing of a problem or in the evaluation of models that give impressive results but result […]

4 Common Machine Learning Data Transforms for Time Series Forecasting

4 Common Machine Learning Data Transforms for Time Series Forecasting

Time series data often requires some preparation prior to being modeled with machine learning algorithms. For example, differencing operations can be used to remove trend and seasonal structure from the sequence in order to simplify the prediction problem. Some algorithms, such as neural networks, prefer data to be standardized and/or normalized prior to modeling. Any […]

How to Prepare Univariate Time Series Data for Long Short-Term Memory Networks

How to Prepare Univariate Time Series Data for Long Short-Term Memory Networks

It can be hard to prepare data when you’re just getting started with deep learning. Long Short-Term Memory, or LSTM, recurrent neural networks expect three-dimensional input in the Keras Python deep learning library. If you have a long sequence of thousands of observations in your time series data, you must split your time series into […]

Multivariate Time Series Forecasting with LSTMs in Keras

Neural networks like Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) recurrent neural networks are able to almost seamlessly model problems with multiple input variables. This is a great benefit in time series forecasting, where classical linear methods can be difficult to adapt to multivariate or multiple input forecasting problems. In this tutorial, you will discover how you can […]

How to Remove Trends and Seasonality with a Difference Transform in Python

How to Remove Trends and Seasonality with a Difference Transform in Python

Time series datasets may contain trends and seasonality, which may need to be removed prior to modeling. Trends can result in a varying mean over time, whereas seasonality can result in a changing variance over time, both which define a time series as being non-stationary. Stationary datasets are those that have a stable mean and […]
