DeepAR: Probabilistic Forecasting with Autoregressive Recurrent Networks

by   Valentin Flunkert, et al.

A key enabler for optimizing business processes is accurately estimating the probability distribution of a time series future given its past. Such probabilistic forecasts are crucial for example for reducing excess inventory in supply chains. In this paper we propose DeepAR, a novel methodology for producing accurate probabilistic forecasts, based on training an auto-regressive recurrent network model on a large number of related time series. We show through extensive empirical evaluation on several real-world forecasting data sets that our methodology is more accurate than state-of-the-art models, while requiring minimal feature engineering.
