modeltime.ensemble 1.0.0 Unreleased

NEW Nested Modeltime Ensembles

In modeltime 1.0.0, we introduced Nested Forecasting as a way to forecast many time series iteratively. In modeltime.ensemble 1.0.0, we introduce nested ensembles that can improve forecasting performance and be applied to many time series iteratively. We have added:

New Vignette (Nested Ensembles)

modeltime.ensemble 0.4.2 2021-07-16

Compatibility with modeltime 0.7.0.

  • Calibration: Added “id” feature to enable accuracy and confidence intervals by time series ID.

modeltime.ensemble 0.4.1 2021-05-31

  • Improvements for parallel processing during refitting (available in modeltime 0.6.0).
  • Requires modeltime 0.6.0 and parsnip 0.1.6 to align with xgboost upgrades.

modeltime.ensemble 0.4.0 2021-04-05

Recursive Ensembles


modeltime.ensemble 0.3.0 2020-11-06

Panel Data


  • modeltime.ensemble now depends on modeltime.resample for the modeltime_fit_resamples() functionality.
  • modeltime_fit_resamples() moved to a new package modeltime.resample.
  • ensemble_weighted(): Now removes models that have no weight (e.g. loading = 0). This speeds up refitting.

modeltime.ensemble 0.2.0 2020-10-09

Stacked Ensembles (Breaking Changes)

The process for creating stacked ensembles is split into 2 steps:

  • Step 1: Use modeltime_fit_resamples() to generate resampled predictions
  • Step 2: Use ensemble_model_spec() to apply stacking using a model_spec

Note - modeltime_refit(stacked_ensemble) is still one step, which is the best way to handle refitting since multiple stacked models may have different submodel compositions. An additional argument, resamples can be provided to train stacked ensembles made with ensemble_model_spec().

modeltime.ensemble 0.1.0 2020-10-07

  • Initial release of modeltime.ensemble.
