Thanks to Forecasting for Social Good for inviting me to deliver a workshop on "Forecasting with Generalised Additive Models (GAMs) in R" today! We talked about:

❓ What are GAMs?
❓ How do we fit GAMs in R?
❓ Model evaluation and forecasting
❓ When GAMs go wrong!

(1/3)Modeling Short Time Series with Prior Knowledge in PyMC 🚀

Yesterday, I shared an article by Tim Radtke about forecasting insufficient time series data with a Bayesian approach using R. Here is the Python version 🧵👇🏼

@ramikrispin@mstdn.social avatar

(2/3) The TLDR is when you need to model a short time series (less than one seasonal cycle) and have some knowledge or assumption about the expected behavior of the series - either from a similar series (i.e., similar products or geos) you can translate those assumptions to the model's prior distributions and use it to build a forecasting model.

@ramikrispin@mstdn.social avatar

(3/3) Here is the Python version of this approach by Juan Camilo Orduz using Python 🐍 with PyMC:

(1/2) Modeling Short Time Series with Prior Knowledge

When modeling time series data, you may find yourself with insufficient data. Insufficient data in time series would typically be defined as less than one seasonal cycle. This would challenge us to understand whether some events are driven by seasonality or other reasons, such as one-time events, outliers, etc.

@ramikrispin@mstdn.social avatar

(2/2) If you have some prior knowledge about the series (e.g., learning from similar products or goes, etc.), you should consider using the Bayesian approach.

The article below by Tim Radtke provides an example of how to incorporate prior assumptions into a time series forecasting model when having insufficient data.

Weird day. We were expected to get 6-10 inches of snow starting at 2 am and lasting through this afternoon. Schools closed. City declared a snow emergency. But it just started snowing at 8:30 and it looks like it'll only be a dusting.

Hudson Valley : “This is one of the more severe changes [to a forecast] we’ve seen in recent memory. For the data to be unanimous in the result… and then to all begin shifting dramatically SE in about 12 to 18 hours, is a rare event.”

Radar at 12/21 1804 currently shows the storm is parked offshore from Los Angeles (dumping quite a bit there). Still raining in Oxnard.

So, the ghost in the HRRR machine puts totals near Santa Barbara (on 12/22/23 at 9am) at less than an Inch. But at 12/22/23 at 10am then says it thinks total accumulation will be 5 inches. It's likely a glitch (the HRRR accumulation algorithm), but I do wonder what's going to be correct.

The Collapse of Western Civilization: A View From the Future

This work is an important title that will change how readers look at the world. Dramatizing climate change in ways traditional nonfiction cannot, this inventive, at times humorous work reasserts the importance of scientists and the work they do and reveals the self-serving interests of the so called carbon industrial complex that have turned the practice of sound science into political fodder.

Disaster early-warning systems are ‘doomed to fail’ — only collective action can plug the gaps
From floods to wildfires, and tsunamis to volcanic eruptions, early-warning systems can stop natural hazards becoming human disasters. But more joined-up thinking is urgently needed.

(1/2) Timetk for Python 🚀🚀🚀

The timetk, one of the main R packages for time series analysis and forecasting ❤️, by Matt Dancho, is now available in Python 🐍. The package provides a variety of tools for working with time series data and analyzing it. The Python version leverages pandas for processing time series data and plotly for visualization.

My R Shinylive app is now on Github Pages. It was simple and straightforward to deploy the app on Pages, a tutorial to follow...

Please be patient while loading 😝


  • Serverless
  • Easy to deploy as a website on Github Pages (and similar)


  • Slow load time
  • Still experimental

I spent last night to build this fun Shinylive app - Forecasting Sandbox 😎

The app provides a simple sandbox for three simple forecasting models - Linear regression, ARIMA, and Holt-Winters, and it entirely runs on the browser!

I am planning to deploy it to Github Actions and create a tutorial (WIP) 👇🏼
