Time Series Using Exponential Smoothing Cells

  title={Time Series Using Exponential Smoothing Cells},
  author={Avner Abrami and Aleksandr Y. Aravkin and Younghun Kim},
  journal={arXiv: Machine Learning},
Time series analysis is used to understand and predict dynamic processes, including evolving demands in business, weather, markets, and biological rhythms. Exponential smoothing is used in all these domains to obtain simple interpretable models of time series and to forecast future values. Despite its popularity, exponential smoothing fails dramatically in the presence of outliers, large amounts of noise, or when the underlying time series changes. We propose a flexible model for time series…

Predicting Service Outages using Tweets
An effort not only to detect outages but also to forecast them using twitter analysis based on time series and neural network models is conducted and a log analysis model is proposed for the same.

The paper gives simple algorithmic procedures which preserve advantageous features of classical exponential smoothing and, in addition, which are less sensitive to outliers.
Robust forecasting with exponential and holt-winters smoothing
Robust versions of the exponential and Holt-Winters smoothing method for forecasting are presented, suitable for forecasting univariate time series in the presence of outliers and for fat-tailed time series under model misspecification.

The forecasts produced by the new double seasonal Holt–Winters method outperform those from traditional Holt-Winters and from a well-specified multiplicative double seasonal ARIMA model.
The Fundamental Theorem of Exponential Smoothing
Exponential smoothing is a formalization of the familiar learning process, which is a practical basis for statistical forecasting. Higher orders of smoothing are defined by the operator Snt(x) =
Sparse/robust estimation and Kalman smoothing with nonsmooth log-concave densities: modeling, computation, and theory
It is shown that the extended framework allows arbitrary PLQ densities to be used, and that the proposed IP approach solves the generalized Kalman smoothing problem while maintaining the linear complexity in the size of the time series, just as in the Gaussian case.
The impact of exponential smoothing forecasts on the bullwhip effect
An important phenomenon often observed in supply chain management, known as the bullwhip effect, implies that demand variability increases as one moves up the supply chain, i.e., as one moves away
Analysis and Evaluation of Five Short-Term Load Forecasting Techniques
A comparative evaluation of five short-term load forecasting techniques is presented and the transfer function (TF) approach gave the best result, whereas for the peak winter day the TF approach resulted in the next to the worst accuracy.
Robust Statistics: Theory and Methods
Robust Statistics enables the reader to select and use the most appropriate robust method for their particular statistical model, and describes the theoretical and operational aspects of robust methods separately, so the reader can choose to focus on one or the other.
