Paper accepted in IJF: Hierarchical forecasting with a top-down alignment of independent level forecasts

Authors: Matthias Anderer and Feng Li Abstract: Hierarchical forecasting with intermittent time series is a challenge in both research and empirical studies. Extensive research focuses on improving the accuracy of each hierarchy, especially the intermittent time series at bottom levels. Then hierarchical reconciliation could be used to improve the overall performance further. In this paper, we present […]

The Diversity paper is accepted in the European Journal of Operational Research

Authors: Yanfei Kang, Wei Cao, Fotios Petropoulos & Feng Li* Abstract: Forecast combinations have been widely applied in the last few decades to improve forecasting. Estimating optimal weights that can outperform simple averages is not always an easy task. In recent years, the idea of using time series features for forecast combination has flourished. Although this idea has been proved […]

New Paper: Bayesian forecast combination using time-varying features

Authors: Li Li, Yanfei Kang, Feng Li Abstract: In this work, we propose a novel framework for density forecast combination by constructing time-varying weights based on time series features, which is called Feature-based Bayesian Forecasting Model Averaging (FEBAMA). Our framework estimates weights in the forecast combination via Bayesian log predictive scores, in which the optimal […]
