Improving Forecasting Through Ensembles

There’s this wonderful article I want to share on building prediction models using ensembles. “Ensembles” in this case simply means the combination of two or more prediction models.

I’d personally had great success bringing several (relatively) poorly performing models together into one ensemble model, with prediction accuracy far greater than any of the models individually.

Definitely something to check out if you’re into this sort of thing.

I’m a big fan of data analysis and its subsequent communication. It always gives me a thrill extracting meaning out of data through analysis, and figuring out the best way to present the findings for maximum impact!
