What is the difference between having the need to predict sales for next year just once and needing to have a system predicting sales and updating those forecasts every month with new data? How do you calculate forecast accuracy? How to choose the right predictive model for your business case? What is important if you build 1 month forecast and what is important if you are trying to build 3 years ahead prediction? Do fancy machine learning methods outperform classical statistical methods? These will be key questions discussed and answered in this particular Meetup. The main idea is to not learn a particular algorithm but to find out which best steps to make in order to choose the right algorithm for your business case.
Through small quizzes you will realize differences of forecasting strategies, discuss interesting points with lecturers and other participants.
