Key concepts around using DataRobot Time Series

About this Mission

On this mission, you will learn the key concepts that provide the foundation for building time series models with DataRobot.  We'll start with a quick overview of the basic information such as how missing values are handled and how to get predictions. Over a series of activities, you'll progressively build more accurate models with DataRobot by adding more sophisticated modeling such as Forecast Distance, Feature Derivation Windows, dealing with regime changes, and using calendar files.  

Prerequisite: None

Requirements: Chrome Browser and DataRobot Time Series.
