Time Series Forecasting is not just your typical machine learning solution that learns from past data. In addition to this, it factors in time to learn that depending on the time of day/year/month/time period, certain events are likely to either happen again or move in a certain direction.

This humble yet effective technique has been quietly chipping away in the background building up almost quintillion business applications over time. I will delve into only a fraction of those applications you probably forgot about and demonstrate how to implement a Time Series model in R.
