**Build predictive models from time-based patterns in your data. Master statistical models including new deep learning approaches for time series forecasting.**

In *Time Series Forecasting in Python* you will learn how to:

- Recognize a time series forecasting problem and build a performant predictive model
- Create univariate forecasting models that account for seasonal effects and external variables
- Build multivariate forecasting models to predict many time series at once
- Leverage large datasets by using deep learning for forecasting time series
- Automate the forecasting process

*Time Series Forecasting in Python* teaches you to build powerful predictive models from time-based data. Every model you create is relevant, useful, and easy to implement with Python. You’ll explore interesting real-world datasets like Google’s daily stock price and economic data for the USA, quickly progressing from the basics to developing large-scale models that use deep learning tools like TensorFlow.

**about the technology**

You can predict the future—with a little help from Python, deep learning, and time series data! Time series forecasting is a technique for modeling time-centric data to identify upcoming events. New Python libraries and powerful deep learning tools make accurate time series forecasts easier than ever before.
