Universal script for time series prediction
When working with time series prediction quite sophisticated data manipulation and operational steps must be undertaken. Because of this I generated a script which automizes the whole procedure of data preparation, training, validation and extrapolation into the future.
The script contains a text passage in its header with important additional information. Please read through this text before to start working with the script.
Should you have any questions or comments please post them here with this thread.
ATTENTION: As allways, I can not guarantee for the correctness of the script or the generated data! Use of this script is as always at your own risk!
Note: The CSV files which come with this packet have been generated on a machine with German operating system. As such, they use the field limiter 'semocolon' (';') and the decimal limiter 'comma' (',').
Should the script be used on a machine with anglo-american operating system setting then the characters in the CSV files must be replaced accordingly:
First, replace all ',' by '.' - then replace all ';' by','.
