UniTS: Building a Unified Time Series Model


Core Concepts
UNITS is a unified time series model that outperforms task-specific models, showcasing superior performance in forecasting and classification tasks without the need for specialized modules.
Abstract
UNITS introduces a unified time series model that addresses challenges in handling diverse time series tasks. It supports various tasks like classification, forecasting, imputation, and anomaly detection through a novel network backbone. UNITS demonstrates exceptional performance across 38 multi-domain datasets compared to task-specific models and natural language-based LLMs. The model showcases zero-shot, few-shot, and prompt learning capabilities on new data domains and tasks. UNITS achieves competitive results in trained tasks and can perform zero-shot inference on novel tasks without additional parameters.

How does the universal task specification in UNITS contribute to its adaptability across different time series tasks

UNITSの普遍的なタスク仕様は、異なる時系列タスクに対する適応性にどのように貢献していますか? UNITSの普遍的なタスク仕様は、ユニークな挑戦を克服するために設計されています。この仕様では、さまざまな種類の時系列データとタスクを統一し、特定のデータドメインやタスク要件に依存せず、単一モデルで複数の異なる任務を処理できます。これは、従来の方法が新しいデータソースや予測長さごとに個別の調整が必要だった問題を解決します。つまり、UNITSは共通したパラメーターを使用して多くの異なる任務を同時に処理できるためです。
