AI for Time Series Analysis and Forecasting


Today, there is a great need for the introduction of AI into all aspects of the software, making the enterprise software smart. The argument one often finds in articles describing the unsatisfactory state of business software is, “If smartphones can do it, why can’t enterprise software?”

This course addresses the need for smart software for time series analysis and forecasting.

The course is intended for software architects and engineers. It gives them a practical level of experience, achieved through a combination of about 50% lecture, 50% demo work with student’s participation.


3 Days


Software Architects, Developers


  • familiarity with any programming language
  • be able to navigate Linux command line
  • basic knowledge of command-line Linux editors (VI / nano)

Lab environment

The working environment will be provided for students. Students would only need an SSH client and a browse.
Zero Install: There is no need to install software on students’ machines.
