Auto-correlation for time series analysis

October 23, 2010

Recently, I was reading the EPFL magazine and was surprised to see an article where they interviewed my master thesis adviser, Francois Fleuret. He explained data mining and gave an example about our project.

The goal of my master project was to predict the pollen concentration in the air for the following days. For that, we used different kinds of weather data (temperature, wind, sun, rain, etc.) available as daily data. The most interesting was not the data mining technique used, but rather the results obtained.
