Deep Learning for Time Series Classification: a brief overview

Source: Deep Learning on Medium


In this post, I presented a brief introduction on how to adapt deep learning models for time series classification. I hope you managed to have an overview of CNNs for time series classification and if you are interested in learning the details of these models I recommend reading the relevant papers as well as checking out a recent study group on the forums.
