Anomaly & Outlier Detection

Anomaly and outlier detection… Neat, advanced stuff in this space that I finally got my hands dirty with in R. The anomalize package, created by Matt Dancho, helped me identify outliers and smooth out my forecasting model (backtesting also improved). I used anomalize in conjunction with Facebook’s prophet for a time-series projection. For R users out there: This package works beautifully with the tidyverse.

I’m continuously impressed by the stuff that Matt puts out including educational content, tutorials, webinars, and his package development. I followed one of his posts on Business Science to learn how to use his anomaly detection package.
