Predictive Analytics using Time Series Data

Course Objective
To provide a strong foundation in predictive analytics with special focus on time series data. It covers a thorough discussion of the widely used time series techniques and their demonstration using industry based data sets

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to know

Extract useful information from large and complex data sets

Recognize patterns and trends in the data bases and model them.

Use appropriate modeling tools from the set of classical methods, ARIMA, filters and other smoothening techniques, neural nets and state space models etc in order to arrive accurate forecasts.

Use the most powerful and sophisticated routines in R for time series data analysis.
