  • See patterns in time series data

  • Make forecasts based on models

Let me give you a brief overview of the course

  • Section 1 - Introduction

    In this section we will learn about the course structure

  • Section 2 - Python basics

    This section gets you started with Python.

    This section will help you set up the python and Jupyter environment on your system and it'll teach

    you how to perform some basic operations in Python. We will understand the importance of different libraries such as Numpy, Pandas & Seaborn.

  • Section 3 - Basics of Time Series Data

    In this section, we will discuss about the basics of time series data, application of time series forecasting and the standard process followed to build a forecasting model

  • Section 4 - Pre-processing Time Series Data

    In this section, you will learn how to visualize time series, perform feature engineering, do re-sampling of data, and various other tools to analyze and prepare the data for models

  • Section 5 - Getting Data Ready for Regression Model

    In this section you will learn what actions you need to take a step by step to get the data and then prepare it for the analysis these steps are very important.

    We start with understanding the importance of business knowledge then we will see how to do data exploration. We learn how to do uni-variate analysis and bi-variate analysis then we cover topics like outlier treatment and missing value imputation.

  • Section 6 - Forecasting using Regression Model

    This section starts with simple linear regression and then covers multiple linear regression.We have covered the basic theory behind each concept without getting too mathematical about it so that you understand where the concept is coming from and how it is important. But even if you don't understand it,  it will be okay as long as you learn how to run and interpret the result as taught in the practical lectures.

    We also look at how to quantify models accuracy, what is the meaning of F statistic, how categorical variables in the independent variables dataset are interpreted in the results.

  • Section 7 - Theoretical Concepts

    This part will give you a solid understanding of concepts involved in Neural Networks.

    In this section you will learn about the single cells or Perceptrons and how Perceptrons are stacked to create a network architecture. Once architecture is set, we understand the Gradient descent algorithm to find the minima of a function and learn how this is used to optimize our network model.

  • Section 8 - Creating Regression and Classification ANN model in Python

    In this part you will learn how to create ANN models in Python.

    We will start this section by creating an ANN model using Sequential API to solve a classification problem. We learn how to define network architecture, configure the model and train the model. Then we evaluate the performance of our trained model and use it to predict on new data. We also solve a regression problem in which we try to predict house prices in a location. We will also cover how to create complex ANN architectures using functional API. Lastly we learn how to save and restore models.

I am pretty confident that the course will give you the necessary knowledge and skills to immediately see practical benefits in your work place.

Andrea6 November 2020

Awful English, moreover all the regression and deep learning part is not related to time series! To avoid

Abdul14 October 2020

I learned new things in this course that i could apply to real world problems and deeply understand the concept, requirements and working of Time Series Models.

Minnie18 August 2020

The course started strong however by the time I got to lecture 41, there were a ton of mistakes in the lecture. Also, some of their work is outdated as the code provided by them doesn't work for ARIMA. The course is well organized but with so many mistakes, it's hard to focus.

Kshitij17 August 2020

Good practical implementation based course with all of the necessities of python covered along with one of the most difficult topics to understand

Aaswad9 July 2020

Results of the regression model created using ANN were not nicely explained, the Time series part was very good.

Shubham29 June 2020

This course is really Awesome, very well explained the Time Series concept along with fundamental logic and concept of Data Science calculation and neural network. I highly recommend this course to everyone. Really thanks for such a valuable course. thanks Udemy and team.

Mario24 June 2020

The course is great, and it briefly touches on the mathematical background of the used algorithms which I believe is essential. It would be better to add more quizzes to make sure learners fully understood the concepts.

Anand12 June 2020

I am not getting any new knowledge so far. Yes, this course gave me direction of thinking when you start on any problem.

Dosses10 June 2020

up to this stage, the introduction and the objectives of the course have been introduced along with some conceptual facts necessary for the analysis. The presentation refers to the Amtrak dataset which is not available with the coursee materials.

Piotr7 June 2020

Great course! Lecturers have a lot of knowledge and skillfully transfer it. The scope of the course is broader than the topic indicates. My expectations were exceeded.

Sanket30 May 2020

In starting of the course. I cant say anything but i like te introduction in simple way application of time series forcasting is expalin

Luis20 May 2020

I have enjoyed this course as I get to review time series analysis (and I was expecting to see ANN apply into time series analysis). Also, it helped to introduce ANN with Keras over Tensorflow for classification or regression problems. Many thanks

Emmanuel27 April 2020

Esperaba se utilizaran pronosticos con las redes neuronales y no la repeticion de otro curso que ya habia tomado de su parte.

Iskandar27 April 2020

The Indian accent of this guy is almost impossible to understand. The closed caption and subtitles are frequently incorrect. The material is good and the guy has the knowledge but he should not be giving a course in English language, he should be teaching in Urdu or Bengali.

Kevin16 April 2020

It was a good overview of AR, ARMA, etc and regression was taught beautifully, although I had a hard time with the accents at a few points. Why 3 stars? I was hoping on seeing how to apply a real-time series of data to the model, for example, as would be presented by a series of sensors. In other words the actual keras/TF portion was based on training standard canned datasets, not on a time-series (which is what I need.) Further, once the model is set up, how do I use it to find anomalies in incoming data streams (when actual inputs are different than the predicted)?
