Course Description

In this course, you'll gain practical skills solving real-world problems using regression and time series analysis techniques with no coding required. You'll discover how to identify and define regression problems and how regression algorithms work, including their different parameters. You will also learn the best techniques and practices for training and validating regression models and how to evaluate and improve the model's performance.

You'll also explore time series data, including univariate and multivariate time series. You'll learn how to apply these techniques to real-world problems, like forecasting sales trends, projecting customer demand or predicting insurance claims based on historical data. By the end of the course, you'll have the skills to build regression models and use time series analysis to make informed decisions in various industries and to help companies reduce their risk of financial loss.
