[docs]class DeepFactorEstimator(GluonEstimator): r""" DeepFactorEstimator is an implementation of the 2019 ICML paper "Deep Factors for Forecasting" It uses a global RNN model to learn patterns across multiple related time series and an arbitrary local model to model the time series on a per time series basis. In the current implementation, the local model is a RNN (DF-RNN). Parameters ---------- freq Time series frequency. prediction_length Prediction length. num_hidden_global Number of units per hidden layer for the global RNN model (default: 50). num_layers_global Number of hidden layers for the global RNN model (default: 1). num_factors Number of global factors (default: 10). num_hidden_local Number of units per hidden layer for the local RNN model (default: 5). num_layers_local Number of hidden layers for the global local model (default: 1). cell_type Type of recurrent cells to use (available: 'lstm' or 'gru'; default: 'lstm'). trainer Trainer object to be used (default: Trainer()). context_length Training length (default: None, in which case context_length = prediction_length). num_eval_samples Number of evaluation samples per time series to increase parallelism during inference. This is a model optimization that does not affect the accuracy (default: 100). cardinality List consisting of the number of time series (default: list([1]). embedding_dimension Dimension of the embeddings for categorical features (the same dimension is used for all embeddings, default: 10). distr_output Distribution to use to evaluate observations and sample predictions (default: StudentTOutput()).
