TIM Forecasting tool
After installation, the tool is available in the Predictive category of the tool palette. You can drag & drop the tool into your workspace. The image below shows appearance of the tool icon in a workspace. The TIM Forecasting tool has one input and five outputs. By clicking on it, a configuration pane appears. We take a closer look on it in subsections below.
D - Dataset¶
Input dataset used for the forecasting task. Follow this link to learn more about expected dataset structure. One additional requirement is that the timestamp has to be in the first column of the dataset.
By clicking on the tool a configuration pane appears. First you have to authenticate in order to be able to use the tool.
Then you can proceed to data configuration part of the pane, see image below.
The available configuration is:
- Predictors - which predictors to use for forecasting.
- Target - target column (column/variable that is predicted).
- Forecasting horizon - How many steps from last target record is desired to forecast
The advanced settings configuration is split into four sections:
- Max. interpolation length - the largest gap in values that is interpolated
- Prediction intervals confidence
- Backtesting length
S - Status of the forecasting task¶
Status of the forecasting request sent to TIM API.
P - Prediction¶
Timestamps with corresponding predictions, upper and lower prediction interval bound and backtesting columns (backtesting is returned only if configured in advanced settings).
I - Importances¶
Percentual importance of individual predictors in the model.
E - Extended importances¶
Percentual importance of features built by the engine.
G - Graph path¶
Path for treemap rendering.
