Probabilistic Time Series Forecasting Challenge, Project Seminar (BA/MA)
Statistical forecasts are relevant across all fields of society. In this data science project, students make, evaluate and communicate their own statistical forecasts in a realtime setting. We consider probabilistic forecasts that involve a measure of uncertainty in addition to a point forecast. Students are asked to make forecasts of several realworld time series such as hourly energy demand. Historical data on all series are available from public sources that are updated as time proceeds. While the time series differ from each other in important ways, statistical methods can meaningfully be used for prediction in all cases. We focus on quantile forecasts which are useful to measure forecast uncertainty in a relatively simple way.
Applied Econometrics Lecture & Tutorial (MA)
Applied econometrics is concerned with answering causal questions (e.g., "How does an internship affect a person's future wage?") and making predictions (e.g., "What is the expected rental price for an apartment, given its size and location?"). This course presents econometric methods for these tasks, with an emphasis on causal inference.
