Specialized Models: Time Series and Survival Analysis

Por: Coursera . en: , ,


This course introduces you to additional topics in Machine Learning that complement essential tasks, including forecasting and analyzing censored data. You will learn how to find analyze data with a time component and censored data that needs outcome inference. You will learn a few techniques for Time Series Analysis and Survival Analysis. The hands-on section of this course focuses on using best practices and verifying assumptions derived from Statistical Learning.

By the end of this course you should be able to:
Identify common modeling challenges with time series data
Explain how to decompose Time Series data: trend, seasonality, and residuals
Explain how autoregressive, moving average, and ARIMA models work
Understand how to select and implement various Time Series models
Describe hazard and survival modeling approaches
Identify types of problems suitable for survival analysis
