Prophet Recipe

The Amazon Forecast Prophet recipe is compatible with the open source implementation of Prophet.

How Prophet Works

The Prophet recipe (forecaster) makes forecasts at scale. You can use it with datasets that have the following properties:

  • Contain an extended time period (months or years) of detailed historical observations (hourly, daily, or weekly)

  • Have multiple strong seasonalities

  • Include previously known important, but irregular, events

  • Are missing data points or have large outliers

  • Show non-linear growth trends that are approaching a limit.
