In this 10-minute talk we will explain intuitively fast Fourier transformation and recurrent neural network, two key tools that will be discussed in the later talk. We will also explore how the concepts play critical roles in time series forecasting. The audience of this talk learn what the tools, key concepts associated with them, and why they are useful in time series forecasting.

Note: This is a short talk. Short talks are 10-minute talks designed to offer breadth across the areas of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and data engineering. The short talks are focused on the tools and practices of data science with an eye towards the software engineer.
