  author={Christos Faloutsos and Jan Gasthaus and Tim Januschowski and Bernie Wang},
  journal={Proc. VLDB Endow.},
Time series forecasting is a key ingredient in the automation and optimization of business processes: in retail, deciding which products to order and where to store them depends on the forecasts of future demand in different regions; in cloud computing, the estimated future usage of services and infrastructure components guides capacity planning; and workforce scheduling in warehouses, call centers, factories requires forecasts of the future workload. Recent years have witnessed a paradigm…

Intermittent Demand Forecasting with Deep Renewal Processes

A new, unified framework for building intermittent demand forecasting models is introduced, which incorporates and allows to generalize existing methods in several directions, based on extensions of well-established model-based methods to discrete-time renewal processes, which can parsimoniously account for patterns such as aging, clustering and quasi-periodicity in demand arrivals.

Transforming Autoregression: Interpretable and Expressive Time Series Forecast

Autoregressive Transformation Models (ATMs), a model class inspired from various research directions such as normalizing flows and autoregressive models that unite expressive distributional forecasts using a semi-parametric distribution assumption with an interpretable model specification and allow for uncertainty quantification based on (asymptotic) Maximum Likelihood theory are proposed.

Query-based Workload Forecasting for Self-Driving Database Management Systems

This work presents a robust forecasting framework called QueryBot 5000 that allows a DBMS to predict the expected arrival rate of queries in the future based on historical data and presents a clustering-based technique for reducing the total number of forecasting models to maintain.

Online data mining for co-evolving time sequences

This work develops a fast method to analyze co-evolving time sequences jointly to allow estimation/forecasting of missing/delayed/future values, quantitative data mining, and outlier detection, and adapts to changing correlations among time sequences.

A Multi-Horizon Quantile Recurrent Forecaster

We propose a framework for general probabilistic multi-step time series regression. Specifically, we exploit the expressiveness and temporal nature of Recurrent Neural Networks, the nonparametric

A Neural Network architecture called AR-MDN, that simultaneously models associative factors, time-series trends and the variance in the demand, is proposed, that yields a significant improvement in forecasting accuracy when compared with existing alternatives.

Temporal Regularized Matrix Factorization for High-dimensional Time Series Prediction

This paper develops novel regularization schemes and uses scalable matrix factorization methods that are eminently suited for high-dimensional time series data that has many missing values, and makes interesting connections to graph regularization methods in the context of learning the dependencies in an autoregressive framework.
