Look inside

In this liveProject, you’ll use deep learning to implement powerful time series forecasting models that can beat the performances of previous models. You’ll work with the Python package “PyTorch Forecasting” and the deep learning models LSTM and N-BEATS. You’ll also get experience with key techniques of cross learning, ensembling, and hyperparameter tuning.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.
