Forecasting in Big Data with Recurrent Neural Networks
thesisposted on 29.10.2020, 01:57 authored by HERATH MUDIYANSELAGE KASUN GAYAN BANDARA
With the advent of Big Data, many application databases have produced large collections of related time series, which may share key time series properties in common. To exploit these similarities, Global Forecasting Models (GFM) that simultaneously learn from a set of time series have been introduced. This research studies aims to develop a series of novel forecasting methodologies, using Recurrent Neural Networks as the principal forecasting architecture to improve the forecasting accuracy of GFMs in different circumstances. Furthermore, this study demonstrates the empirical evidence of the proposed GFM architectures to address real-world forecasting challenges in the retail and health-care industries.
